- Mark your hanging point with a pencil.
- Take a nail-set, awl, or nail and with a hammer tap a “pilot hole” into the wall.
- DO NOT make the hole wider than the anchor.
- Place the anchor over the hole and firmly tap it in until it’s flush with the wall.
Wood screw anchors are wedged into a hole and then expanded for a tight fit with the insertion of a wood screw. Wood screw anchors can also be used in solid masonry and concrete, and are used for light, shallow hold anchoring.
Some anchors have machine screw threads, while others are designed to be used with wood screws, sheet metal screws, and/or lag screws. Once installed, removing the screw will cause some anchors to loosen. A few anchors are self-drilling but most require a pre-drilled hole.
