Conical Plastic Anchors are also known as wall plugs, these anchors expand when installed to reinforce the hole and resist stripping.

An injection-molded anchor with a flanged opening at the top end and a cone-shaped body that is cupped at the opposite end. It has three horizontal slits cut into the body which extend from the bottom tip up the shank but stop before the flange. There are also three horizontal fins extending from the flange at the top, down the shank but stop before reaching the bottom tip.

The conical plastic anchor is a light-duty part that can be used in drywall, concrete, hollow block or brick. It is not suited for applications where holding power is important. For use with self-tapping or wood screws.
