Required for Steel Stud Wall Mount Installation

Crutchfield customer from Yorktown, VA on 12/14/2020

Bought these to go with my new 75" Samsung and Sanus mount which are mounted into steel stud walls. These did the trick and made for a quick mount install.

Pros: Fair price

Cons:

Crutchfield customer from Denver on 6/5/2020

Was all set to install my Sanus mount and then discovered upon calling Sanus that this kit was an additional cost. The verbiage in the manual seems to suggest they'll send it to you - nope. Sanus rep suggested I buy on Crutchfield for less $$$ - gotta love honesty! That and the anxiety of fishing the anchors into place with the somewhat brittle plastic guides and then snapping those off (per instructions) has me feeling 5 stars is generous, but the final result is very strong (55" Samsung) and at the end of the day the kit worked as advertised. (If you're not familiar with anchors like this, note that the plastic guides hold the metal piece in place for a 'metal on metal' result - the screws eventually thread into the 'toggle bolts' and pull those tight against the metal stud. Installed correctly, it's not going anywhere!) As another reviewer noted, a good drill bit does make a difference. Many basic drill bit kits don't include a 1/2" bit, so check your toolbox to make sure you have that ready to go. I'd suggest 'stepping up' your pilot holes in order to help ensure a perfectly level result, as a 1/2" bit is potentially difficult to get exactly centered on the first throw - especially when drilling into a metal stud. I used 1/4" or smaller to punch through center, which helped guide that larger 1/2" bit into the center of my anchor holes.

Bolts too small for the size hole it said to drill but overall works if you get larger bolts

Good for a drywall

Alex from Lehi, UT on 5/14/2014

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought these anchors to use for my TV mount on a drywall. I don't have any studs behind this wall so it was the only option. So far so good, it handles my 32" TV without any problems. I've tried to put some pressure to TV mount itself with my hands and it looks sturdy.

Pros: Does it job.

Cons: You can get 6-pack at another retailer cheaper.

Glorified toggle bolts

BobF from New York, NY on 11/5/2013

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This kit is nothing more than 4 glorified 1/4 X 20 toggle bolts and washers. They worked fine but I only needed two for my wall mount and probably could have gotten toggle bolts and washers at the hardware store for a couple of bucks.

Pros: Worked fine

Cons: Expensive for what you get.

Metal stud mount

Darren808 from Ewa Beach, HI on 10/5/2012

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Worked great.

Pros: Secure to metal stud. Holds a lot of weight.

Cons: Probably over engineered to support more weight than needed. Because if this large 1/2 inch drill bit is needed to make hole in metal stud . Recommend use cobalt drill bit.
