Rated 1 out of 5 by Weak, poorly made rubbish. I bought a pack of these for use in my house. They are rubbish! When you start to screw them into plasterboard, you get 2 or 3 turns before the drill end snaps off and blocks you from pushing in any further. You then have to pull out the bit remaining outside the plasterboard and bang the cutting bit through the board with a screwdriver before putting the screw thread bit back in the hole. If you then try to screw that bit in, it just digs a big hole but doesn't actually grip. Buy the Rawlplug ones instead, they're made from thicker metal and cut straight in without issue. 2 Jul 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by doing the job wall fixings! Does what it says in the title, keeping things up (nothings fallen as yet!) 6 Jun 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Worked - But Care Needed Used these to put a kitchen cabinet up on a plasterboard wall. They do work, but I did find that when inserting the screw if the plasterboard is "Crumbly" then they will spin in the hole. To stop this happening, I applied a lot of pressure to the screw whilst screwing in which helped prevent this. Overall, I much prefer these fixings to the, "Toggle" type fixings. 4 Jun 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Plasterboard saviours I've ruined many a hole in plasterboard using the wrong plugs until I found these. Now use them everywhere. 30 May 2016

Sorry for the delay.
These will come with screws.
If you wish to use your own screws, the screws supplied are Ø4.2mm (Ø4mm wood screw would work).

Length

When Screwfix says 35mm or 50mm for these, is that the screw length (as I suspect) or the fixing length?

Is the difference down to the maximum thickness of material that can be fixed to the wall?

It's bad (but typical) of Screwfix not to give sufficient detail.
