How to fit wall plugs

Wall plugs are essential when hanging cabinets, mirrors and shelves - in fact anything you want to attach to your walls. A normal screw will not securely stay in plasterboard or masonry without a wall plug. They expand to securely grip the sides of the hole you have drilled, and will help to hold the screw in place without damaging your walls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best of the best Excellent product. I find these the best choice for hollow walls. The plugs stay where they are put, don't pull and can support considerable weight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but seless without the anchor gun The description of the product should be changed to inform people that a setting tool or an anchor gun should be used for best result. the metal arms do not fold just by screwing the screw, doing it this way can damage the wall and in fact leave a big hole, the setting tool pulls the back of the fixing easily. i've been using them for a long time now, and yes, it can get messy if the room behind the plaster board is even slightly obstructed preventing one of the arms from expanding as others won't expand either. However, they are very strong and once in place they will stay there forever, there's actually no way of removing them, unless you cut the head of the fixture off and push the rest of it in, but this can too be a bit messy. Not having enough room in the cavity lengthwise should not be a problem. Using the gun you can gently pull the screw while inserting the whole fixture into the wall, so that in the end the space required will be that of the screw length.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quite Literally The word literally is overused these days, but these hollow wall anchors have quite literally changed my life.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor Instructions Discovered these and thought they would be perfect for fitting a heavy bathroom cabinet to a stud and plaster wall. After following the instructions TO THE LETTER, churned up the plaster board surface. So had a look on line to see what I was doing wrong and lo and behold many people have had the same problem. So looks like I will now have to repair the plaster and invest in an anchor setting tool. Further visit to B&Q and discovered a starter pack which includes the tool and a selection of wall anchors of different sizes. Pity did not spot this first. Even then instructions on use of the tool are non-existant and no information on hole size to drill for each anchor. I have now succeeded in deploying the anchors succesfully and the cabinet has stayed on the wall so far!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too long Just too long. Check that there is enough room behind the plaster board for these to work before you buy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great idea but not best quality All walls in my house are hollow so every wall fixing is hung using these, the ones which work are great but I find myself having to buy a lot more than I need as a lot of them will not fully tighten or the anchor spikes brake and cut through the plaster
