How much weight can drywall hold?
Joanmarie on Jan 18, 2015We hug a 100 lb mirror with two screws into drywall, no problem. They sell a thing called "monkey clips" which are angled, just so they don't rip out of drywall (that's the only catch), and they come up to 150 lbs, so its not the weight, its more the angle. I think your okay if its staying.Helpful Reply
Shari on Jan 18, 2015I think the answer depends on how important this mirror is to you, or how expensive it was. If the screws rip out of the drywall, the mirror will surely break when it falls. If you would be upset the mirror broke, well then it would be better to be err on the side of safe rather than sorry and add anchors.Helpful Reply
Cathi on Jan 18, 2015Regardless of the weight, I always use mollys and anchors for Anything I hang on the walls. Lesson learned many years ago, several irreplaceable antique pieces destroyed...Helpful Reply
Mcgypsy9 on Jan 19, 2015Hubby used to hand everything with small nails and I was never happy when the things fell to the ground. I lost some nice things so, YES get anchors!!Helpful Reply
Mcgypsy9 on Jan 19, 2015LOL actually my husband still tries to get away with ways to get around not having to hang with anchors. He bought some of those things that you just stuff in the wall, just a wire thing that says it holds like 500 lbs. or whatever. Maybe they work maybe they don't but the problem with them is that the pictures never hang straight and it drives me insane!!!! SOO I throw a fit every time he goes to use one. Well, actually unbeknownst to him, I have thrown most of them away : ). Sorry dear, but they don't work for me!Helpful Reply
