Anchors are a practical solution for attaching one object to another, mainly when the surface object is hard and solid, such as stone brick, concrete or hollow like drywall. The type of anchor that will be most suitable for an application will depend on the material and condition of the surface object, as well as the size, weight and directional force of the object being anchored. Fastener anchors can be attached to a wide variety of materials, including:

Concrete anchor screws do not use expansion as a way of holding the connected base material. Instead, concrete anchors have extremely sturdy high and low threads that dig deeply into the concrete as they are installed. Concrete anchor screws can also be removed and re-driven into the same holes.
Wedge anchors (or expansion anchors) come supplied with a nut and a washer and are installed through pre-drilled holes. The anchor is initially inserted through the coupling material and into the drilled hole until the anchor threads are below the concrete surface. The nut is then tightened with a wrench, which wedges the clip portion of the wedge anchor between the concrete and the anchor shaft. The concrete wedge anchors' unique design allows it to successfully anchor fixtures into concrete. Wedge anchors are profoundly durable and provide extreme strength once installed.
Hollow Wall Anchors
Hollow wall anchors are a three-piece fastener consisting of a cylindrical expander shell with longitudinal sections of its shank removed. This design allows the shell to be pulled toward the head and form anchoring legs on the blind side of the assembly. Hollow wall anchors are primarily used to provide a stable mounting system in weaker base surfaces such as drywall and gypsum board. This type of anchor system can be installed in pre-drilled holes, and typically have gripping apparatus that expands behind the wall when fully installed to support the mounted fitting.
