Please bear with me. New to all this. I put a screw in a plastic plug in a plasterboard wall for a blind cord safety device and it just came out a few weeks later . Would these fixings keep it in place? Thanks x

These are ok for light weight stuff but for anything with weight ive been using grip in fixings and would highly recommend them.

Depends what you're fixing but I would highly recommend Dry Line Pro if it's anything reasonably heavy http://www.drylinepro.com

Yes if not too heavy ,you have probably used the wrong plug .If you use one for a solid wall on plasterboard it will come out pretty quickly.
If its a heavy blind use a metal plasterboard anchor these open up inside of the board like a butterfly and grip very tight ,hope that helps

Thanks, stocked up.

These will hold a lot of weight if the wall is up to it, four will happily hold a kitchen wall cupboard and the serious weight that usually gets put inside them.

A tip for those with dot and dab walls or stud walls, if you want to put one in where a dab of stuff is, screw it in as far as the end of the self drilling bit, pull it out and then you can easily snap the whole end off with a pair of pliers up to the start of the main thread and then screw it in without depth issues.

Simple answer is yes
#16
Good deal but I wouldn't use these for kitchen cupboards. I have dot and dab everywhere, these rigifix ones are solid, you can hang 280kilo of the M8 size.

Agreed - I've used rigifix fixings for hanging articulated TV brackets and they have been solid - I just wouldn't have wanted to risk a whole load of glassware, the cupboard (and the wall!) on a fixing such as this.

These are great for lighter load items however!

Just ordered for collection, great find, cheers OP! :)

Remove the plastic wall plug and replace with one of these then screw in the screw inside this.... Then you've got 99 spare ones ;)
Or you can get 10 of the Tommy Walsh plastic ones for £1 at the pounds shops which will do the same job and then you'll only have 9 spare :)

Rigifix for dot and dab into brick, and hollow wall anchors are much better for stud walls/plasterboard. I live in a timber framed house now and all the walls are stud walls so I spend a fortune on hollow wall anchors from SF!! :D

Buy the proper setting tools as well.

These screw in fixings from the OP are OK for hanging pictures or similar but nothing heavy.
#23
Great deal thanks OP, just what I needed
#24
These are going out of stock fast. Between the two stores in my town there was only one in stock so I grabbed it quick. Good deal.
#25
Never had much luck with these, I tend to use hollow wall anchors instead. Obviously depends what is behind the plasterboard as you usually need a bit more depth to get them in, but I'm yet to see one move and I've put up rails in shops with them.

Those look the business. I used some frame fixings from toolstation for mine into thermalite block ....

http://www.toolstation.com/shop/Screws+%26+Fixings/d90/Frame+Fixings/sd1950/Phillips+Window+Frame+Anchor/p22691

Then wall anchors with the setting tool for lighter jobs. I don't particularly like the ones posted in this deal as they tend to work loose and then mess up your plasterboard.

Looks like a good deal but I'm not a fan of these for Plasterboard.
I would recommend Hollow Wall Anchors, they're a little more expensive but very secure.
I normally buy size: M4x38mm

Voted hot but when it comes to plasterboard, don't forget those very useful studs hiding behind your wall, which can take considerably more load. Investing in neodymium Earth magnets is also money well spent for quickly finding where to place your fixings.

None in any of my local stores, but heat anyway.

I buy these quite frequently too :(

Have you tried drilling a pilot hole first?

I use these. Note: you get 50 'fixings' in the box not 100 (50 screws and 50 plugs).

Yeah, thats what I use. Got a pack with the setting tool from Lidl years ago, just keep replacing what I use but that size are my main ones for light work. My main issue is working out the depth of the walls, as every one seems to use a different thickness board?

I have 4 of these holding up a 12kg mirror and they do the job excellently. They work very well for fairly heavy items. I definitely wouldn't use them for kitchen cupboards though.

Good for quick fixing reasonably heavy items, or things likely to deal with some handling (toilet roll holders, etc), but these are better for heavy items:

These are good and it's a great deal but if you're hanging something heavy on plasterboard, this type's better:
