Top Class Raw Plugs

"These are the best plugs I have used for plasterboard. I used a 9mm drill and the fit was very tight which is what you want. Didn't have any problems with them. Very good price as well."

Best plugs for plasterboard
15 Dec 2013
By AldousVoice
, London
"I've been using these for fixing into plasterboard for ten years and wont use anything else.
Although the instructions state a 10mm hole I prefer an 8mm hole and tap the plug into place using a hammer. This enables the fins to grip the board.
For fixing to blockwork I can recommend Fischer SX8 (also stocked by Screwfix)."

Plasterboard Plugs
3 Jun 2013
By Mekon
, South East England
"Nicely packed in a tough plastic bag, these plugs are really super! But you need to ensure that the "shank" is long enough to go through the thickness of your plasterboard, otherwise the "wings" just chew up the board. Other than that, does the job at a good price."

"Most excellent method of fixing to plasterboard. Stronger and more reliable than metal inserts and you can take the screw out again."

Perfect general purpose fixing

"These plugs are excellent for medium-heavy use. Alternatives tend to be either for very light loads or large and expensive. These are the best I have tried, by some way."

"I actually bought these in a hurry to finish a job fairly late one evening. I'm glad I did, they were far better than anything I have previously bought from other DIY shops and considerably less expensive. Very pleased."

"What an excellent product, used without a problem, nice tight fit and secure fitting. Would definately buy and use again. I have tried other plasterboard fixings with a mixed success rate. These I had a 100% success rate with. Highly recommended!"

Really impressed
31 Jul 2011
By danclyon
, Cambridge
"Was looking for something that I could rely upon when putting heavier things up on plasterboard walls (have been used to normal brick/block walls so this was a bit of a leap of faith).
Fischer did not let me down - heavy curtain poles up - and from the strength of the resulting work, these can take a LOT more. Next stop cabinets and mirrors...
Used an 8mm wood bit to make precise holes in the plasterboard and with the motion while drilling, it opened up to a nice snug hammer home into place."

"I used to use PlasPlugs Plasterboard Plugs , but the variety I used to use are no longer available. Tried these and I have found them to be the most reliable available. Particularly good for fitting Skirting Boards as they do not slip. Not cheap but you get what you pay for."

Great Value
15 Jul 2010
By Aitch2000
, Edinburgh
"Superb value compared to the piddly bags which offer a dozen or less for the same price in the large DIY stores.
When fitted correctly, very strong, for medium-heavy usage. I initially bought thesse to fix an LCD TV mount, upon which was attached a laptop + shelf. Difficult to fault really. A well designed piece of plastic!!
Straightforward to use, 10mm drill bit (might perhaps use a 9mm next time, preferring a tighter fit)
A worthy addition to a section of my (screwfix bought) toolbox case and this stash will last me years!"
