"I wanted something substantial to fix an old mirror( recovered from a dressing table circa 1940) to a wall you can imagine it is rather heavy but of good quality and for a fiver I'm not complaining.I looked at all other fixtures some that are only available in New Zealand some that I wouldn't believe could even hold a plastic mirror safely.Then I saw these on the Screwfix website they are easy to fit (there are no instructions only drill bit sizes and drilling depths) but it doesn't take a genius to fathom out that once you have the bottom two fitted you can rest the mirror on them and mark where the other two will need to go.And the top two slide to one side just to make fitting easier for you.There's more than enough room to fit a 5mm thick mirror and the cork washers stop the back from rubbing on the fixture. Done in 15 minutes. Oh did I say they don't cost the earth either ?"
"I bought these because the original brackets that had been supplied with my mirror were useless.
These Fischer metal brackets are very easy to install because the 2 upper spring loaded brackets allow a little tolerance on measuring. The 2 spring loaded brackets also make it easy to insert and/or remove the mirror safely. The result is safe and elegant.
"The Fischer Metal Fixing Clips for a mirror are far superior to the plastic ones originaly supplied with the mirror two of which have broken, fortunately without damage to the mirror. The steel clips are the same size as the previous plastic ones so were a staight replacement without drilling new holes. The steel clips give you far more confidence as to their longer term reliability and are also very asthetic looking."
"I needed this kind of fixing as a lump in the wall meant screwing a drilled mirror direct to the wall was high risk - I've broken mirrors doing that before, although a rubber washer behind eash screw-hole could have worked. These fixings are fairly easy to use, although instructions telling you how much tolerance you have on the springs would have been helpful. They do stand out from the wall so you get a gap behind the mirror of about 1/4 inch I guess. I used 2 packs on a large mirror, so have 2 fixings on each edge. Two man job fitting it in as needed to tension the springs on 2 edges at once, but now in nice and tight and the mirror is not going anywhere!"
