Title: Screw tipped anchor assembly

Abstract: A wall anchor assembly has a pair of posts extending from a collar. The collar has an opening for passing a part of a bolt. Distal from the collar, the posts are connected by a connector. An anchor member is captive between the posts and between the collar and the connector. The assembly has a penetrating configuration in which the anchor axis is substantially parallel to the assembly axis, and the anchor body portion and posts form a body portion. A tongue protrudes from an inside surface of a post and engages a groove on the anchor member in the penetrating configuration with the longitudinal anchor axis substantially parallel to the assembly axis, and transmits axial rotation from the collar to the anchor member. The bolt engages a hole in the anchor to draw the anchor member against the wall to clamp the anchor assembly to the wall.
