Fischer High Performance Universal Plugs UX6 4.5-5 x 35mm Pieces
Great for soft bricks.
I always use these for backboxes etc in 1930s houses with soft crumbly bricks where red plugs do not work well. Use a 5mm bit without hammer and then tap them in and they never fail. I wouldn't use them for every job due to the cost, but for difficult situations you can't beat them

I've used these for a number of jobs and they've never let me down they are more expensive but you get what you pay for

Worth the extra
These wall plugs are worth paying the extra for, the lip stops them going in too far and they grip nice and tightly. I used these to fit kitchen wall cabinets with No.5 45mm screws and they have all held perfectly

Best plug I have used and better than standard plastic plugs. For really loose holes,or friable material, have set plug with good quality high strength grab adhesive and left to set before screwing.
