Ogólnie: ANCHOR (to, co się "kotwiczy" w ścianie i do czego się wkręca/przykręca/wbija śrubę/hak lub coś podobnego...
Jest wiele rodzajów/typów / materiałów
Anchors and fasteners are available in a wide variety of types and sizes. The type and size needed for a particular application depends on a variety of factors including load level, direction of load (tension, shear, or a combination of the two). Other factors are environment (shock and/or vibration) and characteristics of the material into which the fastener is to be imbedded (new concrete, old concrete, concrete or cinder block, plaster, dry wall, etc.)

Rawlpug to raczej nazwa typowo "handlowa"
What on earth is a Rawlplug?
It is a fastening which allows you to fix objects to brick, masonry, or concrete. A hole is drilled into the floor or wall, an insert (now normally plastic) is put into the hole, and a screw is driven into the insert. The screw expands the insert sideways, and it grips the inside of the hole tightly.
Why is it called a Rawlplug?
After the inventor, John Rawlings. In the early 20th. century, he devised a brass cruciform plug to fix something to a wall. Later on he created a plug made of jute bonded with animal blood. Due to the intervention of WWI the Rawlplug company was not formed until 1919. The term is now generic, like Hoover, i.e. any similar product tends to be called by the Rawlplug name

A moja babcia na odkurzacz wołała Elektrolux :-)
