Rated 5 out of 5 by from How good can a plug be? After doing DIY and maintenance over many years and fixing things in many substrates, I have tried plugs from everywhere, Sure, you can get cheaper than Fischer SX, but lets be honest - you can't get better! We've all been there where you fix something on the wall and just as you tighten the last screw - the plug pulls out! Not with Fischer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for! I've tried numerous brands and types of plugs before but these are by far the best (although expensive). Use the drill bit and screw size suggested on the box and you won't go wrong. I've use smaller sizes for hanging kitchens and showers and not had one fail, even in soft brick. I used this size to hang a farm gate on a brick wall using coach screws with no problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from way too expensive at screwfix The Fischer SX range are my favourite wall plugs. Buying at Screwfix? Only as emergency. You can buy these plugs much cheaper (1/2 price) somewhere else. There are also different sizes available, 40mm, 65mm with collar (SX) or without (SXR), not with screwfix. Why are you selling these plugs twice the price (all the fischer plugs), and why a very limited range only? I would buy these again if 1st cheaper and 2nd whole range available...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not cheap but they work On the face of it these plugs are expensive, but they work extremely well. Use an 8mm drill bit and they fit like a glove and give a strong fixing. I used these to secure bars on my garage window so clearly I wanted something that was not going to come out with one kick.

What type of screw would be recommended to fix metal railings brackets to pilers constructed of solid engineering bricks (very hard bricks). Could you suggest a drill bit for drilling the 8mm holes? Thank you.

Asked by: IMRX
The screw you use will depend on the hole Ø in your brackets, If the holes are not countersunk then use a 6mm pan-head screw if you can. You will need to drill an 8mm Ø for an SX 8 plug. A decent masonry drill bit or an SDS drill bit if you have a suitable SDS drilling machine. The screw will need to protrude 5 or 6mm out of the bottom of the plug , so ensure it is long enough for the application an it must not bottom out on the hole so make sure that you drill hole is deep enough. Regards Technical.

Block walls

Can these be used ina erated block walls where there is dot and dab plasterboard? If so, should they be pushed into the wall past the plasterboard?
Asked by: MrMo
Fixings should always have their recommended embedment into the substrate. This beans the plug should be on the surface of the wall and not the plasterboard. Have you considered the SXR frame fixings to go across the gap?

Screw size

In the information, it says a screw size of 8-10mm. There is no such screw size. Do you mean old imperial gauge 8-10 which equates to approx. 5-6mm screw width ?
Asked by: Anonymous
These relate to the SX 12 plug (Ø12mm drill hole required) and to answer your question, yes, they are designed for Ø8mm - Ø10mm screws. Please ensure the screw comes through the end of the plug, by the diameter - at least, once installed
