COMMON APPLICATIONS

FLAT SCREEN TELEVISION APPLICATIONS
Mounting bulky, expensive items such as televisions or other electronic equipment, is only recommended when the item can be attached to at least one wood stud behind the wall. All anchor installations are subject to the variability of the drywall material itself (thickness, age, material consistency, etc.) so utilizing the strength of wood helps lessen the risk of damage to expensive items.

OVERHEAD APPLICATIONS
Only E-Z Ancor® TOGGLE LOCK™ is recommended for overhead use. The toggle bar provides the extra strength needed for anchoring vertically into the ceiling.

PLASTER APPLICATIONS
Since plaster has a different composition than drywall, E-Z Ancor® products cannot be used.

METAL STUD APPLICATIONS
These products are not for use in metal studs.

COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS
Many commercial public buildings such as hospitals, libraries, museums, and apartment buildings are constructed using multiple wall facia products. In other words, one could encounter walls with double or triple drywall layering. In such cases, use of a metal anchor, such as STUD SOLVER®, would ensure that the installation holds up to the tough density of the material.
