The Purpose of Wall Anchors
Hanging a shelf or picture on the wall can be an easy do-it-yourself project that only requires a few tools to get the job done. Many people, however, forget to use one of the most important supplies that can ensure that your decorations are securely fastened to the wall – wall anchors. Copper State Bolt & Nut Co. offers a wide assortment of wall anchors to meet the needs of any project.
If the item that you would like to hang on your wall is very heavy, there is a chance that a basic nail in drywall could pull free. This could result in injury to an individual or damage to your home. Solid wall anchors can ensure that your screw or nail is securely fastened either into the drywall or into a stud. If you have small children in your home, it is important that you use an anchor to keep photos up on the walls and the children’s furniture upright.
The Right Anchor
Different projects require the use of different types of anchors, so make sure that you know which one is the right option for the job you are doing. For example, construction anchors should be used for masonry projects that require heavy-duty fastening, while a self-tapping screw anchor is typically all that is needed to hang a picture frame.
Using wall anchors in your home is one of the best ways to ensure that the finishing touches in each room are safely secured to the wall. Call (800) 603-6887 today to learn more about our wall anchors and the many other fastening products available at Copper State.
