Title: Anchor assembly for a wall, floor or like supporting structure

Abstract: An expandable anchor assembly removably secured to a wall, floor or other supporting structure for purposes of mounting any one of a variety of objects on the supporting structure, wherein the anchor assembly comprises an elongated sleeve including an interior, coaxially disposed channel extending along the length thereof between and in communication with open proximal and distal ends of the sleeve. A connecting structure is secured within the channel substantially adjacent to the distal end thereof and is cooperatively structured with an attachment portion of a connector, removably disposed within the channel through the open proximal end and into moveable engagement with the connecting structure. An at least partially elastic, intermediate wall portion is integrally formed on the sleeve between the proximal and distal ends and is selectively expandable radially outward from the channel as the distal end is forced towards the proximal end, thereby forcing the sleeve into a compressed position through moveable intermeshing engagement between the attachment portion and the connecting structure. The sleeve may be selectively disposed into an extended position through manipulation of the connector, thereby allowing a removal of the anchor assembly from the supporting structure.
