"I have always been a bit nervous about fixing to dry lined walls - I've always owned houses with plastered walls. My daughter recently moved to a newish house with dry lined walls and of course wanted stuff putting up. After some research and reading reviews of this product I opted for the Fischer plugs and they do seem to be a great product. The flush fitting helps so if a deep hole is required 2 plugs can be pushed in to ensure one is fully in the brickwork and the other in the plasterboard and gap."
"Picked these up to give an 8mm hole option rather than the 7mm that most brown plugs are. They work really well, but I'd say that a size 5 screw is the minimum to get a decent grip - if I had 6's to hand I'd have used those."
"These little babies make your life easier. Drill a 6mm hole through your sheet material and brickwork in one go, plug it, tap it home with the screw, tighten and you're done. By using the red plugs you know your screw head is larger than the hole so you can speed through the job. None of this drill a hole in sheet, mark brickwork, remove sheet, drill in brick, plug brick, put sheet back, try and locate hole, screw sheet to wall.... Yeah it's a phaf. Better to drill, plug, hammer, screw - job done!"
"Overall these always seem to work for me in brick, concrete and even aerated concrete blocks most of the time. Best plugs I've found to date that don't slip or pull out. Not the cheapest but not expensive by any means."
Green Leaves in Gold Hooks in Yellow Plugs: Merry Christmas
"I only carry red, brown & blue plugs so disaster struck when even the red was too big. Screwfixcounterman came to the rescue when he found yellow plugs (on the shelf behind me). The plugs fit into the holes and the ridiculously small thread fits into the plug. I would like to add more but there was no tin and the plastic bag said nothing. Oh yes, they were cheap!"
