Never again!!! This fixings made simple task to 5h nightmare to solve all problems with useless big holes in plasterboard. Screw into wall attach fixing and screw then causes whole thing to rotate and chew wall. Went back to B&Q to get same fixing type from Fisher brand and everything works perfect and hassle free. Trust me, this fixings are absolutely rubbish!!!

We purchased these to put up a couple of shelves. We started with the floating shelf brackets, but felt it wasn't sturdy enough, so we added visible brackets too. Unfortunately when I added a couple of A4 folders to the shelf, the weight of it (between the shelf and the books, maybe 3kg?) basically pulled the shelf right out the wall, and we're left with quite damaged plasterboard.
I can't say it's not the plasterboard itself to blame for this, but just be aware that this can happen.
The previous home-owners managed to wall-mount their TV previously on the same wall, so we don't know why it handled that but not these shelves!

I bought these a month ago and the workman that used them said that they were the best he has used to go into plaster board walls.

I've used these for a number of items - some heavy - in our new home with plasterboard walls. I've had no problem with them whatsoever. However didn't have so much luck with the nylon version.
Waste of time and money

Used these to put a curtain rail with two brackets on the wall, rail is very light and curtains not very heavy either. The packet said medium duty and specifically mentions they can be used for curtain rails. They felt firm at first, but after just over a fortnight they had worked loose and were coming out of the wall. I now have four holes in the wall, no curtain pole and need to find another way to solve the problem.
