I have a set of guitar wall hangers coming. I wanted to know if anyone has used these on drywall; do they usually come with drywall anchors or something to hold the weight? Should I buy a set of drywall anchors myself? I know the recommended thing is to use the studs in your house, but this is not feasible here due to locations available. Thanks.

Plenty of good drywall anchors. Find some at your local hardware rated for 30 lbs and you are golden.

The ones I've used have come with drywall anchors. I would think most brands would. If not, definitely get some. Fuck taking chances with that. Can't have guitars fall off the wall.

If you're really worried, find the studs in the wall.

Then find a board that you can attach to the studs, and do so. Attach the wall hangers to it.

I don't mess around with mine. All of mine are stud mounted. I will take a piece of 2 by 6 and run it across the wall and mount the hangers to that with the wood going into the stud. I have had hangers in 4 of my houses in the last ten or so years and never have had a problem.

There is always somebody who disagrees with me on this, and drywall anchors are enough, they can gamble on theirs.

Studs or a spanning board across studs are of course secure, but 2 75# drywall anchors will hold until the house falls down.

dry wall anchors work great when installed properly

To be clear, I'm not arguing against anchors. I use them.

But if you're worried they won't be sufficient- for whatever reason- a spanner attached to the studs will be a secure solution. It could even be finished in such a way as to be attractive in its own right.

I would either use a spanner board or find the studs. I've used anchors, they work if installed properly, but I wouldn't take chances with a guitar. Find the studs or use a spanner board.
Hmmm...I wonder what this button does...
