The 8th Wonder Of World: The Anchor Screw
I know what you're saying. "Must be s a slow news day here in the blogosphere". But for all of you handy, semi-handy, and/or clumsy homeowners, this is newsworthy. Yes, it's The Anchor Screw:
When hanging a picture or a curtain, I was accustomed to using the plastic anchor. But every single time I did, whenever I screwed the screw in, the stupid thing would split, like this and put a big hole in the sheet rock.
Then there's these stupid things. Metal anchors. Been used for years. Every time I bang this thing into the wall and then put the screw in, no matter how gently I screw it , the anchor falls right into the wall, leaving a gaping hole in our beloved wall. A divorce waiting to happen.
It's a screw. It's an anchor. You're both right!
It's so much easier to negotiate. Just one step and you are done. And the results are fantastic.
Oh--the curtains go on TOP of the window?
