Bargain price, great for hanging smaller items in plasterboard, charging 6p each in our local diy!

Are these plastic or metal wall plugs? :?

100 % Metal

These are great but avoid those battons at the back!!!!

Plus £5 delivery though

The Mungo plasterboard fixings are not bad, but Wilkinson's are better, IMHO. Wilkinson's are, however, about 9 times the price!

If i have to hang up something MEGA heavy, would these not be suitable (I have plasterboard internal walls)?! if not, would someone mind pointing me in the right direction! cheers

You used to be able to get heavy duty ones as from Screwfix as well as the ones posted. I think they have a toggle that locks onto the back of the plasterboard. If you want to hang something really heavy though you might be better off locating the wooden frame behind the plasterboard and fixing through the plasterboard and into the wood. Though I'll bet there's no timber where you want to hang your item! :whistling:

thanks for your post, appreciate that. I will take a look at what Screwfix have to offer and see if it has a weight limit on it. I have a stud detector, so hopefully that will help me find a suitable place to hang!

thanks again

They are called Spring toggles and like open 2 prongs that clamp into the plasterboard

am looking to buy some myself from toolstation.

VERY good price. Worth getting.

But I bet I can beat ANYONE on plasterboard fixing (drywall) screws if anyone is interested.


I've tried these fixings a few times but they always seem to loosen after a while ( i.e on my toilet roll holder) when they eventually fall out they leave a huge hole in the wall!

What are the best plasterboard fixings to use that will stay solid longer? :whistling:

I used them on towel rails (not the plumbed in sort) and hanging pictures I had no probs

If it is an item that is getting constant use (Tiolet roll holder - Towel rail Etc) or heavy (Radiator) then you need to but an adhesive behind it as well.

Do tell...
#20
Very good price.

However I've only ever had problems with these types of fittings tearing the plaster board apart. I only use the "wing" type ones now and have had no problems. I guess it depends on what your fixing I guess. Dont use on things like coat hooks or blind attachments as I think the movement, even though slight, causes them fail.

Used them in the passed and not impressed. The screwtype are great and so much stronger.

Have tried the plastic ones ones and the thread never seemed sharp enough to cut into the plasterboard cleanly, thus causing problems described where they move.
Not tried metal ones but find that a well drilled hole (not too large) and rawlplug plastic wallplugs with a flange so they don't get lost into the hole and a decent screw works well for me.

However I try to avoid hanging solely onto plasterboard if at all possible, but have metal framed walls mainly so tricky to drill into if I hit one of them.
#29
These will hold huge weights, plasterboard is far stronger than people give it credit for and it's usually what it's fixed to that causes problems rather than the stuff itself.

Four of them have no problem holding kitchen cabinets up that are loaded with heavy tins, flour etc, definitely wouldn't use those toggle things for a weight like that.

After extensive trial and error on these things I have found the following;
1) I hate hanging anything on plasterboard.
2) The internal block work behind my plasterboard is even softer than the plasterboard itself
3) I find these are the only thing I can really trust ....

Damn cheap at Toolstation as well and you can buy a setting tool which takes the strain out of the plasterboard.

Thats the item I always use especially when fixing such items as toilet roll holders which are pulled at.
Due to the size hole you drill you also have a much smaller repair when you decide to relocate an item

I have had the metal thread fixings rocked out leaving a large hole but never the metal "brolly" type

I prefer the plastic ones too... they can take about the same weight as the metal ones (since it's the plasterboard that's the weakest link).

More versatile in what type/size of screws you can use and you're way less likely to damage any pipe/cables behind the plasterboard.
#33
I use these 1s from screwfix and they are good,also on sale at the min for different 1s.http://www.screwfix.com/prods/32928/Fixings/Cavity-Fixings/Mungo-Hollow-Wall-Anchors-M6-x-45mm-Drill-Size-12-Pack-of-20
As they are a clearance item i went to the local screwfix and they ordered them for me,no delivery costs.
#34
I would never give Screwfix any of my business because they refuse to sell you anything if you do not give them your postcode.Purchase of these fittings would require my postcode.They can go and get Screw(Fix)ed.

Wholeheartily agree with you there, after going through this thread I was hoping someone was going to have recommended these Hollow Wall Anchors as opposed to Spring Toggles, these are the only things I would trust with anything with moderate weight, work fine for holding up a small LCD TV on a wall bracket, shelving etc.

You dont need to drill any pilot hole with these (put your drill on a slow speed ) self tapping into the platerboard

Not everyone is still lazy enough to sit behind their PC and expect everything to be dumped at their door. Hot as good price if picking up (my local is only 2 mile away).
#38
There is a product out there that is far better than all the above mentioned.

The type in the offer are often useless if you need to remove the screw as it often unsettles and moves, the same goes for the type that are classed as heavy duty.

Snaptoggles are they way to go other than fixing to studs etc.

http://www.ultimatehandyman.co.uk/F&F_SNAP_TOGGLES.htm

Like it says use with machine screws, M5 toggles with screws is what I have always used but you do get M6 as well I'm sure.

B & Q sell mini packs at rip off prices, screwfix used to sell boxes of 50 but don't seem to have them anymore.

They can still be had out there I'm sure, bigger in America of course.
