I need help!

I ordered some new bathroom fixtures that came with spiral threaded fasteners. I have never used these kind before. My question is..... do I drill a hole to insert them or do I screw them into the wall? I have tried to turn them by hand but it was too difficult but if I use pliers I am afraid I will break the threads. What do I do? Thank you in advance for your reply.

Hi Kblum,
-it's difficult to visualise what you mean. Can you post a picture ?

Not sure if I am thinking of the same type you have. Are they "heavy" threads and have a phillips slot in the end of them? If so, they are made for drywall and you put them in with a phillips bit in a drill or (very hard) hand screwdriver. Then you put up the fixture and use the included screws and drill into the same hole (phillips slot) that you used to put the anchor in with. Good luck.

Hey Majakdragon,
- I use lots of those, they come in 3 sizes in plastic ( for #6, #8 and#12 screws, and there's an even bigger size made in metal (antimony or something). I just didn't twig on that's what Kblum was talking about
