The great majority of modern homes have drywall for inside walls. There are many reasons why this is such a common building material, but the main reason is that it is very cost effective. One of the downsides, however, is that it isn’t a very sturdy material for anything that you want to mount on the wall. If you are unable to find a stud to attach the fasteners to, or if there is no conveniently located stud where you need to attach a fastener, you will need to use a wall anchor. Wall anchors come in a great variety of styles and a range of weight ratings. While they all follow the same basic idea, there are some that are a little more complicated, usually ones that can support more weight. Since you are still using the drywall for support, it is important that the drywall isn’t deteriorating or wet, since it won’t be able to support the listed weight for the anchor.
