Screws and plugs would support the most weight. You can screw directly into the studs in the corners, and use twist-n-lock drywall screw anchors on the outboard edges which are great little buggers and will hold quite a bit of weight. Since you haven t built it yet, getting the plugs to match should not be a problem.


If I may ask should there be studs right in the corners and on the Home Depot site does the 50lb weight refer to each drywall screw? Or the entire pack.. Sorry I’m not used to ganging stuff I guess
