My boss man gave me one of those # giddy ups one time. I don't know if it was old or what but they wouldn't stick at all. Of course he acted like I was a hack that I wanted a # book.

the ones I used today were by 3m and stickier than the books by far.

I've used them a couple of times to hang mounts for wall mounted flat screen TVs. Work great and haven't heard of any problems and one was over a year ago.
they are so much quicker and easier than those damn weak toggle bolts. used them to hang a heavy panel. but we also put three bolts to the stud in the middle as well. its too easy really. drill 1/2 in hole, zip it in, the zip part even snugs up and fits the hole perfect, cut the plastics off flush. and at ease stick your bolt when ready.

ok I take back everything on the wire marker dispenser. they do come off easily in time because they are plastic. brady tags are cloth type and will stay. bummer

It's amazing all of the different parts and pieces than can be used. I'm an industrial guy and I've seen and used those.

When I worked in the field, I was always on the lookout for new products to simplify work. Trade magazines, supply houses and other electricians always great sources and today the internet.

$10 dollar for a bag of 10 plastic toggles? No thank You, i rather pay $15 for a box of 100.
That's the thing with all these cool new products, the saved labor just doesn't come close to covering the extra cost.

I've used the togglers for years, got my guys hooked on them. They get mad now if they need to use a (wing) toggle bolt. Some of the other trades have seen them and have liked them also.

They come in #10 to 1/2" sizes. #10 has a 800 lb pull out and 1/4" has 1000 lb pull out. We get ours out of McMaster Carr, or Grainger.
