Best screw anchor for the ceiling

I have a brand new alpha wolf and my son pulled the bed curtain down already. And the smoke alarm keeps getting loose. Can i use the screw in anchors? Or are the push anchors the best

Since no one has responded, I will offer my opinion. I think push-in anchors would be fine as long as you get one that is the correct size to fit in the hole snug. I have not used the screw-in anchors, but if they fail it will make a more difficult repair job.

Start with the simplest and least invasive option first (the push in anchors.) If that doesn't work there are many types of hollow wall anchors at Lowe's or home depot.

Fill the hole with wooden toothpickes coated with wood glue, trim off the toothpicks flush with the wall let dry then reattach with original screws.. Better than new!!

You could start with screw in anchors,,,
If those fail you could use Toggle Bolts !!!

Chris, I'm with you on the curtains coming down. My son at 14 CONSTANTLY pulled a curtain down from around his bed. I never understood why he thinks pulling down translates to a horizontal movement of a curtain.


I used the screw in anchors and it has worked for the last two years.

This is our 2nd trailer. 1st trip of 1st trailer, same kid walking back from spinning at the playground turning colors as he walked. I grabbed the bowl and he tossed his cookies. 1st trip 1st trailer. luckily I caught everything. 1st trip 2nd trailer 2nd son coughed so hard he tossed. not as lucky, but no messy. what a way to break in a new trailer
