    Thanks Ron. Believe it or not, I needed to use toggle bolts to affix my toilet paper holder!

    Thanks,Ron.What if I don't have any space behind the plaster wall for spring to open. I already made a 1/2" hole with no luck. I am installing an hand rail on the wall and I am wondering whether if you have any other suggestion? Thanks again.

    Could I use bolts like this (maybe larger) to wall mount a 40" flatscreen TV on drywall?

    I would advise against it; too heavy. With a 40" tv, you should be able to find two studs using a stud finder. Then screw directly into the wood as opposed to relying on drywall.

    You just won a new subscriber. After watching a few if your videos I feel knowledgeable and confident enough to re-grout my tile, fix the caulking around my tub and hang things on my plaster wall. Love your site thanks for the help.

    Ron, sending you lots of thanks from the UK! I used these tips to hang a heavy LCD TV today on a plaster wall. You've saved my bacon! 😀

    Can I just say after looking online at various websites and losing patience because it was either videos with too much fluff I had to sit through to get to the useful info, or written descriptions that didn't make a lot of sense – how BRILLIANT your video is. I learned more in your little video than any of the others I've watched and you did it in less than 2 mins.
    Thank you for being so succinct and helpful.

    Great video and explanation. However, I'm having difficulty finding hooks like the one shown at 1:15. They're not anywhere near the toggle bolts at the hardware store. Do you know where I can find these?

    Will toggle bolts work on drywall as well as plaster? Thanks!

    A warning! make sure that there is enough of a gap between the back of the plasterboard and the wall behind.  If there is insufficient room the clips will not open.  I am now looking for a site to tell me how to fill four half inch holes in the plasterboard.

    Hey you need to update your IE web browser to 11 because MS won't support that version anymore on the 12th.

    Now you, too can hang a mirror at crotch level. Thanks Ron!

    You need to compensate for the distance between the screw and the bottom of the hook (where the wire will rest). In this example, the mirror will end up approx 1/2" – 5/8" lower than you intended.

    Thank you.  I was hanging a bathroom light fixture and the toggle bolts came with the fixture.  I had no idea how to use the folding object!   Weird.   I came to the computer and found you.  Thank you.  You showed how to use the toggle bolt very well.  My light fixture is now on the bathroom wall where it belongs and no longer in the box.  Thank you for Sunday night help!

    your video does not help me! HOW DOES THE BOLT SCREW INTO THE ITEM YOU ARE HANGING WITHOUT LOSING THE TOGGLE?

    I am hanging a TV swivel hanger for a flat screen TV. The "plate" is secured to the wall using a bolt. The "toggle" does not fit through the hole drilled into the plate.
