Wall anchors are great for when you need to hang a heavier object, such as a large picture frame (or pallet art), but don’t have a stud in the proper location. They help secure the item without tearing out the drywall. First, drill the hole where you want to hang the item. Use a drill bit just slightly smaller or equal to the size of the wall anchor.

When you begin tightening the screw on the wall anchor, here’s what it does on the back side of the drywall! It gets squeezed and expands into an arrow or star shape to grip the drywall more firmly! Pretty cool, huh? This prevents tearing holes in your drywall.
