hollow wall anchors
7 Feb 2013
By Chance

"10 anchors for a couple of quid is real value. Easy to use and a solid fixing in cavity walls. Just make sure that you buy the correct anchor for the thickness of the plasterboard and depth of the cavity or you may have problems setting the anchor."

Great plug for plasterboards
29 Jan 2013
By limac100
, Aylesbury
"This plug gives you the best possible grip in plasterboard. Much, much, much better than anything else I tried. It also does not require big hole to be pre-drilled to install it.
Also great value for money.
However you really must use it with setting tool!

Plaster board fixings
11 Jul 2011
By Andy99
, Pontypridd
"Living in a new house, the main problem is fitting items to the walls. I've tried all sorts. After buying this product. I feel sure i will only buy these ever again. The fixing on the wall is very strong, and will hold a good weight. And they are very easy to fit. You don't need to drill the wall first. I would recommend this product, if you live in a new house, or are fixing into plaster boards. They are very good. Great stuff."

Fantastic.
23 Jun 2009
By LenQ

"I'm a plumber by trade and use these to hang radiators on stud walls. They're superb. Two per radiator bracket (three if you want) is ample. The setting tool is worth the money too - saving time and a sore wrist from excessive screwdriver use to expand the fixing. When you remove the fixing screw for decorating etc it is reusable and good as new unlike spring toggles which you lose into the wall cavity. I couldnt recommend them more highly."

Plasterboard fixing
4 Jan 2009
By boris
, London
"Much better and stronger than the plastic arm type fixings for plasterboard stud walls. Three of these are comfortably holding a reasonably heavy mirror in place with no sign of pullout. The hole required isn't as large as for a toggle bolt and the fixing isn't lost when the screw is taken out."

Really strong plasterboard fix
25 Nov 2012
By Anonymous
, Paignton
"These are really strong plasterboard fittings. Do not try to fit with just a screwdriver as the plasterboard is far too weak to hold it from spinning and ruining the hole - you end up knocking it through and trying again with another hole.
Buy the setting tool 12429 as this makes simple work of fitting the hollow wall anchors.

Good, but have drawbacks
13 Jun 2011
By unhandyman
, Cumbria
"These are probably the best all round cavity fixings. They are quick to fix with the setting tool (recommended). They tend to rotate if you use a screwdriver but this tendency can be reduced if you ensure the fitting is held close up to the fixing as you screw.
They are as strong as the board you are fixing them to, but don't expect too much from plasterboard.
They are impossible to remove without drilling out, this is not easy and usually damages the plaster preventing any further fixing being inserted into the same hole. (not so with toggles). I have had several that have broken in situ, i.e. the screw thread has snapped off and this is a real problem as they are so hard to remove and impossible to replace with another.
You cannot fix them close together, maybe around 4 cm is as close as you can go. (toggles can work closer)
They are not so good with dab and board (dab and dot) as the cavity is too small and you must drill out the building block behind the plasterboard. Also do not work so well with foam insulated plasterboard.
The machine screws are a bit large for some applications."
