Fischer Plasterboard Plugs HDF 4 x mm Pieces
Friendly staff at ScrewFix helped my wife to get this problem solved first time. This is a simple well designed product that is good value and so easy to use. I will be using these for all plasterboard fixing from now on - A no brainer.

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.
