Plugs
23 Jun 2013
By Fibretechs
, Newent
"Good plug - does not collapse when hit in the hole and grips well - would say its a tad expensive in the boxed set and the box on the mixed selection is cheap, nasty and falls apart.
As a plug though it is good for its purpose."

Forget the rest!
29 Mar 2013
By SQUARETRAC
, Bedfordshire
"Superb fixing. Used in conjunction with M6 stainless steel coach screws to fit a safety / grab handle to 40 year old breeze block wall in bathroom to stop me falling out of the bath when showering. Rock solid!
More expensive? What price do you put on accidents or breakages caused by inferior fixings?"

Superb Fixing Performance
24 Nov 2012
By Asperatus
, Locks Heath
"I have had to resort to using this product twice recently when other high-quality fixings, which I had thought more suitable, failed. From now on, I am going to use these as my first choice.
They are a very tight fit in an 8mm hole drilled in masonry (I used a new DeWalt Extreme 2 drill bit), and need to be hammered home using a wooden block as a driver.
Used in conjunction with 12 gauge x 50mm stainless steel self-tapping screws, I am confident that they produce a VERY secure and durable fixing."

Wallplugs that work!
17 Nov 2012
By Sejiman
, Hastings
"After many years of struggling to get wallplugs that actually work in all wall materials I came across these Fischer products. After using several different sizes in different wall materials I can honestly say that although they cost a little more than other brands, they are worth every penny! These actually work, reliably and consistently. I will not buy any other brand now."

The daddy of wall plugs
17 Feb 2010
By Hardlife
, Bristol
"Used these to fix bookshelves in aerated brick and sinks to aerated block walls. An assuringly tight fit and no chance of them spinning. Also a good length so you know you'll get the grip.
Very pricey but for applications where it must be reliable (use in a dot and dabbed plasterboard wall) these plugs really are the daddy!
Just use them sparingly...."

Look ok, but listing slightly
10 Aug 2014
By Daryll
, Cambridgeshire
"I bought these to fix some conduit to a dot and dab wall over thermal block.
By all accounts they should work fine, (I haven't actually used them yet) but the listing on Screwfix says for 4 or 5mm screws (size 8 or 10 screws in imperial).
The box actually says 4.5 to 6mm screws, so the 4x60mm screws I bought may be too small to expand them properly.
Time will tell...."

Best plastic wallplugs.
2 Nov 2013
By PapaLazarou
, Royston Vaysey
"These are the best plastic wallplugs I've found and the only ones which work as a cavity fixing.
Just too expensive to use all the time but worth it for occasional use.
Pity Screwfix don't sell them in smaller quantities.

Good plugs but PRICY

"I found that these plugs works when you have problems with normal brown plugs. They are pricy so I only use these when I really have to!!"
