Work every time...!

" There are a number of plus points with these anchors:
- heavy duty, so great for fixing shelves.
- length of screw is sufficient to pass through the back of a wardrobe and bridge the skirting board, for example to make a wardrobe secure
- good grip from the spikes, meaning I have never had to use the setting tool. I simply tap the anchor into the wall, then use a powered screwdriver to tighten up. Remove the screw and you are ready to go, with everything lined up.

Spot on, but buy the tool

" These work brilliantly. Put a floating shelf up today and it is nice and solid.
I can't recommending strongly enough buying the tool to use with these though. See link below. It is easy to use, works every time, and avoids that awful problem of the plug not being tight, or spinning around in the hole when you try to tighten the screw.

" excellent product, does the job designed for.
Wide selection of products available.
Good service, friendly staff.
Reasonable location, and good opening hours. Competitive prices compared to other DIY stores. Products usually available from stock, or if not available on the day, they will be available very quickly. Reliable company, with a wide variety of products to suit every customer.

Plasterboard Anchor

" Great quality, a little more expensive than other brands, but well worth the extra. Holds extremely well as the back umbrellas out behind the plasterboard. You will need a setting tool to use. "

" This product has much in common with Rawlplug "Intersets" and Plasplug cavity anchors. ALL of these need a "setting" tool to collapse the metal wings at the back to ensure a solid fix to the cavity wall board. The manual on Screwfix website for the Fisher items suggests you can set these by screwing the screw up. This frequently fails as the metal anchor usually starts to rotate in the wall, and the anti-rotation lugs just rip the plaster out!
Do buy the setting tool!
