I struggle with hooks on the back of bathroom and bedroom hollow doors, these are great, and comes with the correct drill bit! On PlasPlugs site they are £5.45. On ebay similar price, but no drill bit. Free click and collect.
Not really much more to say.

including a drill bit makes life much easier for most.
Great deal!! I was looking for these about a year ago but refused to buy them because they are so overpriced usually!

Why can't the read the number on the plug?
Do you think that these would support the weight of a metal single towel rail on the back of the bathroom door? Thank you.

The rail yes.
If you load with too much weight or try to shove towels down the back of it when there isn't enough space - no.

I use them for three regular size double hooks, which have a towel hung on them and seem fine so far, but then they are close to the door, a rail stuck out from the door, not so convinced, I would think the door itself would not be strong enough and they may still pull through

Screw some wood to the door using several of these, then screw the towel rail to that. The wood should be around 2cms thick and 20 cms wide.

I have seen so many properties where there are either marks on the frame or the door, agreed they are a great idea, just not for me.

If a door is fitted correctly then there isn't a big enough gap at the top for these to fit without them catching the head of the door lining so in most cases it would require the top of the door to be planed down, most people don't bother so as someone has already mentioned they end up with 2 grooves on the head of the door lining. Also the gap between the door and the doorstop isn't big enough either so the top of the door gets pushed out when you shut the door. Personally I hate these and whenever a client gets me to hang doors and the originals had these I point out all these problems and let them decide if they still want to use them
Don’t do what I did and drilled all the way through the door..

At least you can hang your towel one side of the door and a hat the other side

I'm not really bothered about my doors to be honest. Purchased my house a year ago and the doors are shite anyway so don't mind them or the frames getting damaged. When I have the money I'm going to replace the doors and redo the frames anyway. At the moment these over hanging things work perfectly, they slide ever so slightly (the flat top bit is wider than the actual door so adjusts itself when it touches the inner groove) when the door closes but don't prevent the door closing properly.

When I get proper doors I'll be fitting proper hangers on them.

Appreciate the advice though

Get these now then, they won’t be anywhere near as cheap when you want them!

They're for hollow doors like on caravans with a skin over insulation. Just get the correct plugs.
Would these work ok on glass?
