The Easier and Stronger Way to Hang Things on Your Walls

Introducing Twist-N-Lock(TM) by E-Z Ancor(R)

SCHAUMBURG, Ill., Aug. 1 /-- ITW Brands, a division of Illinois Tool Works Inc. (NYSE:ITW) has introduced Twist-N-Lock(TM) by E-Z Ancor(R), a revolutionary drywall anchor that holds as much as 75 pounds-up to twice the strength of plastic plugs.

"Twist-N-Lock anchors render traditional plastic plugs obsolete when it comes to anchoring in drywall," says David Mueller, Product Manager, E-Z Ancor. "Installation is fast and easy since there's no pre-drilling necessary. All you need is a screwdriver. It takes less effort, provides more hold, and installs consistently."

Made with high-strength, fiber-reinforced resin for superior durability, the anchor installs perfectly flush against drywall to ensure that the item hung lies flat and does not wobble. Thus, Twist-N-Lock achieves a stronger and more secure hold. And to ensure that whatever goes into the wall stays in the wall, Twist-N-Lock features exclusive "split and grip" technology-letting you know with an audible "click" that the anchor is locked into the wall. The click indicates that the anchor legs have split and are compressing the drywall, thereby reinforcing the installation.

"Do-it-yourselfers want to know that the item they're hanging is secure on the wall," says Mueller. "The problem is: they don't know what goes on behind the drywall once the anchor goes in. Twist-N-Lock's audible click provides positive confirmation that the anchor is locked in the wall and won't back out, so there's no more second guessing whether what they are hanging will hold."

Twist-N-Lock is designed to be an easy solution for hanging items like mirrors, thermostats, clocks, decorative shelving, blinds, curtains, and more.

Twist-N-Lock(TM) by E-Z Ancor(R) is available at The Home Depot, Lowe's, Menards, True Value, Do-It-Best, and Rural King stores nationwide. For more information, visit http://www.easyanchors.com/.
