Rated 5 out of 5 by Great fixings Easy to use and so strong. Have used these fixings from screw fix for years. Always have a few in my tool bag when out and about doing odd jobs for friends. 7 May 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good but care needed I bought these to put a number of curtain poles into a couple of houses only a few years old and ran into the following problems. 1. These appear to be a more or less permanent fixing if you try and take the screw out it won't unscrew, the whole fitting comes out. 2. I found this was due to several reasons. The screw locks itself in especially if it is screwed right to the end of the plug. The screw is too long if you are attaching a thin metal plate for instance, there is an assumption that what you are attaching is at least 4 or 5 mm thick. 3. The length of the plug is 35mm which was greater than the distance from the outside of the plasterboard to the solid wall at the back. That means the plug would not screw home. I had to drill with a small drill to seat the end of the plug. 4. There was no drill bit in the pack as stated 5 I had to buy shorter and thinner No6 screws to replace the No 8 provided. This enabled me to finish the job and ensure I could unscrew the fixing screw when required. Overall not a good experience and expensive having to buy extra screws, but once in they do feel very secure. 1 Apr 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great plasterboard fixings Moved into a new flat last year and faced with plasterboard internal walls which I had not had to cope with before. Used some plastic fixings from a well known diy store but with very limited success. On the advice of a member of your staff I tried these and was very impressed with the ease of use and strength. I must also mention that the staff at the Worthing branch are always so helpful and so glad you opened up here. 9 Mar 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best drywall fixings Used to hang a 20lb kitchen shelf corner unit on a drywall. I have previously tried using plastic ones - NEVER again, these are slightly smaller with no need to pre drill as they are sharp also stronger, you do not rip the rim off with your screwdriver. 4 fixings used. I reckon I could put at least half my 13st. weight on it. These are fantastic value, cheaper then elsewhere. 3 Mar 2016

Thanks for the question. These self drill fixings will only take up to 8kilos. They are for lightweight use for small lights and switches. For the best loads, up to 25kgs/fixing, use the HM6 into 12.5mm plasterboard

Answer: 
Whatever screw you use, I've found it best to drive the screw into the fixing before you install the fixing (and then remove it of course). This cuts a thread in the fixing and makes it easier to drive the screw in once the fixing is in place.
