    Default Wall anchor question

    Friends,

    I am trying to hang a hat rack on a plaster wall. The way the rack is built, the heads of the 4 mounting screws will sit about two inches away from the wall when fully driven. In other words, the mounting screws won't be flush with the wall, nor will they be able to expand the anchor (which will be flush with the wall). Of course, this means the anchors won't work. Short of installing a wooden backing affixed to studs, how can I solve this problem?

    Thank you...

    On a plaster wall you should be able to use one of the following.

    Either get longer screws or use an expansion anchor.

    Jack, thank you so much. You have jogged my memory, because I think expansion anchors were what this hat rack's previous owner used in her wall before she gave it to me when she moved. Again, thanks for the help.
