Hanging Cabinets
I have mounted various cabinets and shelves onto cinder block walls using concrete screws. The most noted brand is Tapcon. They install using a concrete drill (it is best to use a hammer drill, but a regular drill will work) and are then screwed into the hole. They offer 2 types, hex head or phillips. I have always used the hex head as the phillips have a fluted type head that I felt would split the cabinets under weight. I also use washers to further spread the bearing surface of the screw.
