Wall Repair Tips

When removing screw-in anchors from drywall, one easy option is to simply countersink the head of the anchor slightly beneath the drywall surface by turning a few extra times. This will now serve as a spackle surface to speed up the patching process.

When removing unwanted, previously installed anchors, such as plastic plugs, E-Z Ancor® fasteners can be used to speed the hole repair process. An E-Z Ancor® TWIST-N-LOCK™ fastener can be installed, leaving the anchor head just below the surface (1/16") of the previous anchor. This becomes an ideal surface on which to apply spackle compound and avoid the usual subsequent coats. For holes approximately 1/4" or less, use TWIST-N-LOCK™ 50. For holes 1/4" to 1/2", use TWIST-N-LOCK™ 75.
