Alligator

All-Purpose Plug Anchors

The TOGGLER ALLIGATOR® may look like a plastic plug, but it is not just an ordinary solid wall anchor. It provides the highest strength and vibration-proof holding values of any other anchor, out holding metal, adhesive, epoxy and even chemical anchors of equivalent size, when fixing into concrete and brick. It even works in hollow wall and unexpected cavities by popping open and locking its teeth into the screw thread to resist pull-out.

Other common solid wall anchors such as shield and expansion anchors require a precise hole to be drilled, a calibrated torque wrench and won't work in an unforeseen cavity, whilst chemical and epoxy anchors are extremely expensive, very time consuming to install and require specific conditions to set correctly. The ALLIGATOR® solid wall anchor however, can be installed in seconds with any drill due to its anti-rotation fins to prevent spinning, sets instantly, is rust-proof and non-toxic and accepts a wide range of screws. With the unique ability to expand up to twice its own length and actually mould to masonry it creates an extremely effective bond between the screw and wall, distributing even holding pressure along the entire length of the fixing, whilst simultaneously sealing the hole from moisture!

The TOGGLER ALLIGATOR®is designed for heavy-duty applications in solid walls, ceilings and floors, but they even hold securely when they encounter unexpected cavities, such as in hollow brick or drywall.

*Screws used in original tests were UNC thread equivalent Sheet Metal Screws.

**Screws used in original tests were UNC thread equivalent Coach Screws.

All tests indicate the ultimate working load (UWL). Industry safety standards recommend ¼ of UWL.

All tests were originally measured in pounds and were carried out using equivalent UNC thread anchors and bolts.
