"I've always set these fixings by hand with the odd one slipping and not setting brilliantly. I had quite a few to do in one day though so bought the tool.
Sets them in seconds and solidly to the wall. Got half a dozen in less time than I would normally spend doing one manually.
It didn't come with instructions however if you've ever used these things before it's fairly obvious what you need to do.

"This tool will allow you to fit and secure the metal raw plug in 10seconds after you've drilled the hole. You'll get it right first time, every time and (more importantly) without digging a big hole in your plasterboard wall!"

Time Saving Tool
28 Nov 2012
By
, Hounslow
"I have used this for dozens of drywall fixings. It is plenty strong enough so long as you use the correct length anchor for the job (length of cylinder below collar must be equal to or just less than thickness of plasterboard)...if you don't it will put undue strain on the tool which is what I suspect another reviewer fell foul of!
In my experience hollow wall anchor lugs alone are seldom good enough to secure the fixing while tightening; this tool eliminates any errors."

Why mess about

"I have been a Joiner for 40 years now. Have messed about with spring toggles and the like for years, not again. If you are fixing anything heavier than a poster frame to plasterboard then this baby, with the proper length toggles IS a must. A good strong and fast fixing to get you out of a FIX."

Rawlplug Setting Tool.
23 Aug 2014
By
, Telford
"When I first started using the tool I could not operate it to "squeeze" the Anchors that I was using!
I then realised that the Anchors were not Rawlplug ones so I changed to Rawlplug Anchors and the tool worked perfectly!!!
I would recommend but only for use with Rawlplug Anchors!

Essential Tools
15 Sep 2013
By
, Norfolk
"I first used the Interset fittings some time ago and was unaware - that this tool existed - general DIY man.. but once I got to grips with this little machine..I think the fixings are exactly what I wanted. This tool holds everything together for you as the fixing settles nicely behind the cavity and gives you a feeling that it will hold your item with confidence, especially on plasterboard. I managed to put up what I wanted - fixed to where I wanted and it feels very solid/
Recommended. Although.. As there are similar tools at much higher prices, if you are putting these fixings in all the time, then a stronger one would be better.. I'm happy.

Not for the professional
9 Jan 2013
By
, N Wales
"This tool is a fantastic idea and works well with rawl plug fixings, but is not strong enough to compress Fischer fixings as they're made from a harder metal hence the setting tool just slides. But perfect for a cheaper fixing. I've just noticed though screw fix sell the Fischer tool. you get what you pay for I suppose."

Ignore The Photo!

By
, Peterborough
"You will not get the item pictured in the photo! The Rawl setting tool is actually near identical to the Screwfix version at the same price. The body of the tool is not metal but black nylon.
That said it works fine and does the job.

Kind of does the job, flimsy
29 Jan 2013
By
, Aylesbury
"Contrary to the catalogue picture this tool is plastic with short arms so has no leverage to tighten the plug comfortably. It is also plastic and to soft as you can feel the arms bend when you use the tool. It does the job but it is not a good quality tool. It is my second as the arm in my first one has broken ( and cut my hand by the way) . I would buy different but there is no choice. The cheaper version from screwfix stopped working after a week so no option- you have to stick with this one or buy somewhere else."

Poor quality
6 Mar 2014
By
, Birmingham
"Tool is predominantly plastic with a useful ratchet function.
Worked well for one plug and then lost ability to grip the rod under pressure which pulls the screw back, rendering tool useless.
Will be returning for a refund, bought another one made of metal without ratchet function which has worked flawlessly."

Not fit for purpose
6 Nov 2013
By
, Bournemouth
"Purchased this tool as I have a large number of fixings to do in my refurbished house, when I opened the box the tool visually seemed to be OK After using the tool on three holes the tool would not pull the M5 screw and secure the fixing, it just slipped on the pull rod. When you look closely at the pull mechanism its similar to the cheap mastic guns you buy in the DIY stores and they fail regularly, I shall be returning the unit tomorrow for a refund."

13 Oct 2013
By
, North Shields
"Sorry to say bought this and 1st time of using just wouldn't hold any pressure on the screw head to pull it back, seemed there was no connection to the piston/spindle rather like a silicon gun that won't engage, took it back to Screwfix and they changed it no problem, however 2nd one exactly same problem as first one, so ended up getting full refund from Screwfix and buying a different model from an on line supplier - However couldn't fault Screwfix full refund no arguments 5* service from thyem."
