I did this once when I lived in an apartment and could not modify anything. Since I had metal working and welding experience, I created a steel frame using 1 inch angle steel. Basically, it was a 'table' that stood inside the closet and it's dimensions where precisely the inside dimensions of the closet; ie; the legs were flush against the walls of the ...

EZ anchor is for sale at Home Depot, Lowes, Ace Hardware. These are rated for 50 pounds. Stanley Supply online also has these. If you can determine the width of your dry wall: it should be 1/2 + 1/2 or 5/8 + 5/8--then your anchor should be a length of 1 to 1/4 inch. If your shelves are not subjected to movement the anchors should hold well. You can also ...

If you only drilled a 1/2" into the stud, and you know the stud is deep enough, get a lag or screw that matches the others a extra 1/2" longer. No doweling needed. You can dowel it if you like, but a dowel, a 1/2" in diameter and a 1/2" in, really does not hold much, the screw will still need to be 1/2" longer. 2"-2 1/2" screws should be the norm, so a 3" ...

Without a picture, I am guessing you want to frame a wall out of steel studs and you are asking how to fasten the track between the concrete beams. The only way to do this is to either run your wall all the way up to the slab, or to span the concrete beams perpendicular with a piece of track or stud. Just cut tongues on either side of the track and install ...

Toggles and other heavy weight drywall anchors can be suitable for TV mounts when the mount is flush. Or toggles in to metal studs. Since the load is mostly shear and not pull-out, this is fairly safe. (Provided the drywall is thick enough, the anchors are installed correctly, the wall is properly supported, and lots of other considerations too numerous to ...

from my research, it seems like snap toggles are highly recommended, and for your situation with metal studs I think they would work since the approximate weight you are estimating is 60 lbs. Snaptoggles (aka toggle straps aka toggler bolts) claim to hold over 200 lbs in 1/2" drywall. I have yet to use them myself, so it would be cool if another member ...

If it is a single metal stud, I would suggest you look into the snaptoggles (aka toggle straps, toggler bolts) that you can attach to metal studs and/or drywall. and if it is a wood stud in the middle, consider using the same snaptoggles for the other 4 corners that are only in drywall since they claim to hold over 200 lbs. in 1/2 inch drywall. I am also ...
