SURE WALL DRYWALL ANCHOR

AUTHORIZED SIMPSON STRONG-TIE DISTRIBUTOR

Sure Wall anchors are designed to self-drill into drywall and provide excellent holding value and greater capacity than screws alone. The standard Sure Wall cuts threads into drywall, greatly increasing the bearing surface and strength of the fastening. The Sure Wall Gripper expands behind the drywall, greatly increasing the bearing surface, resulting in higher loads than the standard Sure Wall. The Sure Wall Nylon Toggle has a die-cast, zinc-drilling point that toggles into position to provide the most bearing surface behind the drywall and the highest capacity in the Sure Wall product line.

FEATURES:
  • Self-Drilling: Only a screwdriver needed for installation in gypsum board drywall
  • Standard Sure Wall can be used as a fastener in fixtures with sufficiently large holes
  • All designs maximize the load-carrying capacity of gypsum drywall
  • New designs include screws with the anchors
MATERIAL:
  • Sure Wall Standard: Die-cast zinc or reinforced nylon
  • Sure Wall Gripper: Reinforced nylon
  • Sure Wall Toggle: Reinforced nylon with a die-cast, zinc drilling point/toggle

    • Insert the screw into the anchor and push until the screw reaches the back of the anchor.
    • Begin turning the screw clockwise to engage the toggle and pull it snug against the backside of the base material.
