how much weight can plastic anchors hold in hollow drywall?

I purchased a coat hanger to mount on my wall. It only weighs a couple pounds and can only hold a mx of 25lbs. It mounts on the wall with 2 screws and plastic anchors. I'm mounting it on a wall that I'm pretty sure does not have a stud and is just hollow dry wall. 

Is 30 lbs too heavy for plastic anchors and hollow drywall?

Hello candisand, and welcome to the community!


30 lbs is not too heavy for plastic anchors if the anchor is rated for that weight. You can also use hollow wall anchors, some can handle up to 100 lbs., just follow the package directions for installation and you're good to go.
