When mounting our Articulated Piers to gypsum board, and where there is no structural wood backing, it is almost imperative to use specialized anchors other than common screw anchors.
These Mounting Plates are matched with Wing Toggle anchors to support Articulated Piers on common drywall. These Wing Toggles open to 1.5 inches but pass through a 3/8 inch hole. With an outside diameter of 1.5 inches, the plate spreads loads across a larger surface area and hides the hole used for the toggle.
To match with our Articulated Set, order 2 PIECES. With our Pair (2 sets) of Articulated Piers, order 4 PIECES.
It is the responsibility of the installer to select the proper mounting hardware for a particular installation.
