Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tight as ducks are. Sold! The idea behind this product is that in a hole, cavity or gap the screwing will pull the end of this plug toward the beginning and cause it to 'knot up' behind the entrance of the hole. This is actually quite a good idea and does indeed perform well in more blocked-in areas I couldn't feasibly use a cavity interset type of fixing. However, with an 8mm hole drilled by an Erbauer tile drill in ceramic tile, these things simply don't go in. They go in partially, but no amount of rubber malletting will get them much further with any confidence or safety for the tile. Each and every one I have fitted in such holes in such a substrate I have had to trim with a stanley knife, mainly to get rid of the aerodynamic 'flights' along the beginning area. In some cases I'd also trim the flange after it was fully home, to give a flush fit. Other than tile drilled holes, they're ideal. I suspect that these are the ones to blame rather than the tile drill bit, and that these have a slightly fictional idea of their own size - an easy thing to do, I'm sure we all agree.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall good product BUT. Fitting some heavy units in a bathroom. So, I do not trust attaching to tiles and plasrboard, but drill through clearance to solid walls and use long screws. I used 5mm x 75 lg. screws. The only issue I had with these is that the screws do not engage thread wise in the plug for the first half an inch. This is probably done to attach to plasterboard and tiles so the plug doesn't expand and burst and crack the tiles. But mushrooms out pulling the item to the wall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but top quality Probably the best all round wall plugs with great holding power. there are much cheaper ones but worth the extra in this case.
