DeWalt Plasterboard Fixings Metal 25mm Pack of 100
check the length first
i was hoping to use this product so that I could avoid the hassle of drilling a lintel in an interior window soffit , in order to hang a Venetian blind. Unfortunately the information about the length of the DeWalt plasterboard fixing is given as 25 mm. It is in fact not the length of the fixing but a reference to the length of screw it takes. This only becomes apparent later when you have used it, hit the lintel and realised it isn't 25 mm. On checking you see a small illustration on the box that shows that it is designed to take 25mm screws. The actual fixing is around 35 mm long, similar to other products.
Therefore when using it, it hit the steel lintel and consequently then just ripped away the plaster around the fixing as it had nowhere to go. More accurate information about the dimensions would have helped me avoid needless damage to the plaster. Hence poor rating, as I have not been able to use the products in the situation I intended.

Worked every time
Having just moved into a brand new house there were plenty of items that needed hanging on the walls and the Dewalt fixings did not fail once.
The design allows the fixing to pre-drill a pilot hole into which the rest of the fixing screws nicely. I found that they took a variety of screws not just the ones provided and this was extremely useful.
I would definitely use again and would certainly recommend to anyone that needs a firm fixing in plasterboard.
