I am installing two toggle anchors in drywall to hold a heavy mirror. The first one went normally, but this second one will not cinch all the way. No human strength can push the plastic disk farther up the tongue. Do I take it out and try another one? Is there something wrong with my wall? Thanks!

    "No human strength can push the plastic disk farther up the tongue" Sounds like a job for the super human strength of "Toggle Man".

Turns out the hole I drilled was close to a stud which wasn't letting the anchor lay flat against the wall. I sawed off the plastic front bit of the anchor, let the metal anchor fall into the wall, and put up another one but with the wings in a different orientation.
