Warning: Wall-Mate® anchors are only as strong as the plasterboard in which they are anchored to. The plasterboard will fail first, not the Wall-Mate®. Due to possible differences in applications and interpretation of results, purchasers must make their own evaluation of the product to determine the suitability of Wall-Mates for their intended use
