Welcome, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to help you with your issue.
Your best bet is probably a toggle strap. Click on the link belowToggle strap
The bar is wider/longer than a typical toggle bolt
Rick - a computer dummy - I can
computer dummy - I can't see you response
This one is 2 1/2" long so it will span a hole of more than 1 1/2"
can you see it now
Rick - I can't see where to reply - I pulled up the link for the toggle strap from home depot....So, I am clear, I can put this into the hole in my drywall which is now about a 1/3 inch and the screw and typical toggle won't hold now...so putting this in will 'expand' behind the drywalland I can then screw my tile rack back to the wall?
It doesn't expand. The metal bar goes behind the wall to provide support and there is a plastic piece on the front of the wall so it 'sandwiches' the wallboard. But if your hole is only 1/3" then a standard toggle bolt may also work. Since standard toggles are less expensive and easier to find I'd try one of then first
