Superb wall plugs
I've tried a few types of plugs for plasterboard and none of them are even a fraction as good as these.
Why are they so good? A few reasons:
Firstly they have thin "fins" near the hole area that bite into the plasterboard and prevent the plug spinning in the hole. Very effective.
Secondly, they have backward pointing barbs to keep the plug snug in the hole.
But most of all they have a really clever torpedo shaped piece attached to the wings with a hole right through it. When you insert the screw and tighten it, the screw pulls the torpedo inwards which in turn pulls the wings tighter on the inside surface of the plaster. Genius design, and means a rock solid fixing. I used them to attach curtain brackets, and I honestly think that the plasterboard itself would crack before these plugs were pulled out.
Simply a great product.
I'd recommend 8mm x 30mm or 40mm screws.

Best plasterboard plugs
I've been hunting for these everywhere, should have gone to Screwfix first.
They are the best plasterboard plugs I've ever used.
They always hold fast, don't twist and can support heavy loads. Nothing else is required.
