Installing Zip-Toggle Anchors into hollow walls -General installations & Professional Sign Standoffs

in this segment I’d like to show you the
HD ZTA zip toggle assembly here we’ve got a toggle that will go into any
hollow wall surface and allow you to attach anything that’s threaded with our
5 16-18 thread 1/4-20 or a 10-24 thread with a smaller toggle to install the toggle, you’ll need to slide the finger grips in opposite
directions this will cause the toggle to straighten out and allow you to put it
into the hole, once it’s inside you’ll slide them back together and that will
cause the toggle to straighten up on the backside of your wall Using a tool like a pair of
needle nose pliers will definitely make it easier to slide
the small plate up against the wall and get a good firm install. pull back firmly
on the legs and press down on that platethat’ll keep it from being able to
rotate. To remove the legs and get them out of the way what we’re going to do is
bend them down one direction flex them out of the way, as we spread them apart
they’ll break off even with that little plate Now you can screw in your
conversion screw or threaded stud At this point we’ll attach our barrel and
if you snug it down at the end it will drive that plastic plate just into the
finish of the drywall and give you a smooth seamless hookup

  1. The open size of the toggle is 2-1/4". You would pre-drill a 1/2" hole and use a 1/4-20 thread size.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions, or use link above to view the Zip Toggle on our website.

  2. I know the plastic toggle comes with the long screw but my question is do I have to use the Long screw ? I need to 2 inch screw I don't have lot room or it going to penetrate through the other wall

  3. I have a guy at work that says u drill the whole through the whole thing your mounting and then put the entire toggle through both and then start the bolt, and screw it in until the plastic slides break off

  4. When I received the package of Snap Togglers I was shocked. I did not know what I was looking at. I thought I had ordered all-metal toggles.
    It was videos like this one that set me straight. The toggles are indeed easy to install and hold up well.
    Thanks for this tutorial.

  5. Thanks for the great video. I’m so grateful for guys like you showing us how to use drywall anchors. Keep up the good work.

  6. The problem with these anchor design is that there's a plastic flange that sticks out on the surface of the wall, so no object with a flat surface can be mounted flush to the wall. You will always have about a 1-2mm gap. Poor design!

  7. Omg thank you so much for this video. The tip with the needle nose was exactly what I was looking for. I was having a horrible time trying to live that collar into place and wound up ruining 6 of the toggles. You are a life saver. Thank you again!
