Independent Construction Materials Testing Laboratory Tested to Industry Lab Standards

Since drywall or wallboard is not a structural material – there are no specific national or international test standards for hollow wall (gypsum board) wall anchors.

The independent construction materials testing laboratory that WallClaw Anchors retained – recommended following ASTM E488 / E488M – Standard Test Methods for Strength of Anchors in Concrete Elements as a guide for testing the wall board anchors as it is the closest standard that can be applied.

The testing of WallClaw Anchors was done to ASTM E488 standards as well as other testing and lab standards applied by the independent construction materials test laboratory.

What tools do I need to install WallClaw Anchors?
All you need is a hammer and a #2 Philips screwdriver (hand or power driver). 

Can I remove a WallClaw Anchor from the wall?
Sure. Just remove the screw most of the way, grab it between your fingers and pull out the anchor. Alternatively, you can remove the screw all the way, grab the anchor head with your fingernails and work it out.

What screw should I use with the WallClaw Anchors?
You must use the Type B (flat-tip) screws provided in the anchor package.  Do NOT use any other screw

Do NOT use standard Type A (pointed screw tip) as these screws may result in damage to the anchor’s internal cam (lever arm) and ultimately result in the anchor not clamping to the wall properly, which may result in anchor separation from the wall.

If longer screws are required, a longer Type B (flat tip) screw can be considered, but the user must recognize that the lab tested load value’s may not be valid with longer screws as the anchors were lab tested as packaged with the #8 x 1-1/8” Type B (flat tip) screws which are provided in the retail packages.

What material is used to make WallClaw Anchors?
WallClaw Anchors are manufactured using engineered nylon and other synthetic resins in a proprietary blended material.

What size hole does a WallClaw Anchor leave if removed?
WallClaw has a shape similar to a nail with flat wings.  When you remove the WallClaw Anchor, it leaves a very small hole from the nail tip and a thin slit where the wings entered the wall like a blade.  See photo of hole after removal of a WallClaw Anchor.  This slit in the wall is easily patched, typically with one pass of Spackle repair compound.

Can the WallClaw Anchor be used in both 1/2” and 5/8” wallboard?
Yes, the WallClaw Anchor is designed to work in both 1/2” (typical residential drywall) and 5/8” (typical commercial drywall) and the same anchor will work in both wall thicknesses.

What Load can the WallClaw Anchors hold?
The WallClaw Anchors can hang in shear, the vertical load along the face of the wall up to 90 pounds, in 1/2″ wallboard and up to 125 pounds in 5/8” wallboard.
