Worked for me.

"Held baton up to wall & drilled pilot hole. Drove fixing into wall with drill/driver. Secured baton with screw supplied. Million times better than expanding plasterboard plugs I have used before. Wouldn't expect a plastic plug to drill with no pilot hole. Screw will drive down the full length of threaded tip of plug, when securing items down to 3mm thick. Less than 3mm then the tip breaks off allowing the screw to tighten fully up to the face of the plug."

Poor on finished plaster
2 Mar 2013
By rhr2213
, Yate
"As the majority of fixing is done onto finished plasterboard, i.e. a skimmed a surface, these nylon inserts are not suitable. Firstly the nylon tip has difficulty penetrating the plaster skim and when it does the first thread of the helix screw is often bent down by the plaster skim and will not drill into the plasterboard.
My advice, stick with the metal type.

weak and worthless
12 Jun 2014
By fletchflash

"waste of money should of stuck with the metal ones and not tried to save a couple of £.
I will be getting some metal ones in my next delivery and these will probably just go in the bin.
They are not strong enough to drive into plasterboard the thread bends.
Even with a pilot hole they distort and become unusable way too easy.
usually takes about 3 or 4 to finally get one into the board"

Rawlplug Plasterboard fixings
5 Apr 2012
By NOEL39
, england
"Rawlplug Self-Drill Plasterboard Fixing Nylon 32mm Pack of 100.
Admit only used three of them but found them inadequate in the job for which they were intended. They did not have the strength of the similar METAL fixings. Would not buy anymore of the nylon ones.

couldn't cut into butter

By rollerblindfitter

"doesn't self drill, doesn't go in all the way, even after a 6mm pilot hole - had to hacksaw the head off. Also, fixing came out when I wound the screw back out - had to hold the fixing in pliers to get the screw out of it."

Terrible fixing
26 Oct 2011
By spetrie
, Glasgow
"Have tried to use a few, but plastic is too soft to self drill and too brittle to actually insert, they keep breaking. would not recommend these at all. Ended up using the old style expanding rawlplug. Would not recommend these at all. Into the bin they go."

Bad design problems
4 Oct 2010
By Zaentzpantz

"I have been using my box of Screwfix nylon fixings for some years with great success and have recently used them all up, but the only nylon wall fixing in the Screwfix catalogue now is this replacement from Rawl which has several important design flaws which make this fixing annoyingly useless.
Firstly the fixing is inserted using a pozidrive screwdriver and the hole in the centre means that the driving notches for the screwdriver are only about 1mm deep. This means that somewhere around the final turn of inserting the fixing in the wall, the torque required is great enough to shear the nylon, leaving you with a stripped fixing standing proud of the wall by about 4-5mm. The old screwfix items were driven by an insertable flat blade which neatly avoided this problem.
Secondly the screws included with the fixings have a thread length of 32mm, however the nylon plug has a blind hole with a usable thread depth of only 22mm. This means you cannot fix a flat plate to a wall with the supplied screws! The blind hole means you have to find exactly the right length of screw for each application, too short and there will be insufficient bite of the screw, too long and the screw won't tighten up against the fitting and you'll strip the plasterboard hole. The older Screwfix plugs were better designed with open holes which accepted longer screws with no problems.
Thirdly the moulding has an attempt at a nylon pilot hole drill designed into the blind end. It looks good, but unfortunately this makes no impact on my plasterboard walls due to the softness of the nylon, needing a metal drill to make a starter hole. The older Screwfix plugs allowed the flat insertion blade to poke through the fixing and act as an excellent pilot hole cutter.
So there we have it, progress means replacing a perfectly good Screwfix nylon wall plug with a badly designed Rawl item complete with screws you may not want which doesn't really work. The Rawl fixings will be shortly appearing in my bin. Please bring back the Screwfix ones, I'd be happy to pay more for something which has been proved to work!
