The TOGGLER ALLIGATOR A8 flush-mount anchor provides a secure hold in solid and hollow concrete, brick, stone, and drywall, and is made in USA. Once inserted flush with the surface of a 5/16" drilled hole in a wall, ceiling, or floor, the anchor accepts a #8 to #14 size screw with a thread length at least equal to the thickness of the item being fastened plus 1-3/4". The fins on the anchor head grip the mounting material to prevent spinning when a screw is inserted. When installed within a solid material, the corrosion-resistant polypropylene body expands and elongates to fill and mold to the hole when a screw is inserted. This helps distribute the force evenly throughout its length to help prevent wall fracture. When installed within a hollow material or a solid material with unexpected cavities, the anchor's jaws open as a screw is inserted, locking the anchor and screw within the material.

Anchors provide reinforcement to fasteners installed in materials that are considered brittle or have insufficient hold such as drywall, concrete, brick, and stone. Anchors provide support through methods such as expansion from within or behind the substrate, or insertion of adhesive compounds into drilled holes.
