Load Forces

Understanding the various load forces that affect an anchor in the wall can help you hang items with more confidence.

SHEAR
Shear refers to the vertical force created by an object pulling down on an anchor in the wall.

TENSILE (PULL OUT)
Tensile strength refers to either the horizontal force placed on an anchor by pulling directly out from the wall or the vertical force placed on an anchor by pulling directly down from the ceiling.

CANTILEVER
Cantilever strength refers to the “out and down” force placed on an anchor by an object that sticks out from the wall surface.
