I sent this before but it did not show up so I am sending it again.
I like to use ribbed plastic screw anchors to hold screws in drywall
for light duty use. My problem is that they never come with ANY
instructions so I always have to guess what size of drill to use and
what size of screw anchor to use.
The plastic screw anchors I have come in four sizes, each a
different color. From smallest to largest they are gray, red,
green, and yellow. I use mostly drywall screws because they are
inexpensive and easy to drive with a cordless drill. Drywall screws
are number six when they are two inches long or shorter.
Two-and-a-half inch, and up, are number eight.
I have been using the red plastic screw anchors with the number six
screws and the green ones with number eight screws. Are those the
What sizes of drill bits should I use for each size of plastic screw
anchor? What size of plastic screw anchor should I use with each
size of screw?
Never ever let your brain explode. It\'s VERY bad for you and
it leaves a terrible mess for someone to clean up.
