Rated 5 out of 5Â by FergusTools Plugs
There are many types of plugs from lots of companies. In the olden days you could buy a long "thing" that you cut to length. Good in many ways.
I was taught by an expert carpenter to hang a shelf or whatever FAST. You drill the first hole and fit a plug. Screw it to the end of the shelf. Now use a bubble and swing to level and go through the wood and the wall with the drill. Stuff the plug in add the screw and hammer it till you can't hammer any more. Now screw it. Awesome. But not with conical plugs with a rim! These plugs are great cos they work in the old way. I used this sort of plug on a rotten 130 year old wall and they worked well.

I always use these as you can't go wrong with the anti rotation lugs.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Bladevane Great on dry lined walls
I have always been a bit nervous about fixing to dry lined walls - I've always owned houses with plastered walls. My daughter recently moved to a newish house with dry lined walls and of course wanted stuff putting up. After some research and reading reviews of this product I opted for the Fischer plugs and they do seem to be a great product. The flush fitting helps so if a deep hole is required 2 plugs can be pushed in to ensure one is fully in the brickwork and the other in the plasterboard and gap.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by LancsRick 8mm option
Picked these up to give an 8mm hole option rather than the 7mm that most brown plugs are. They work really well, but I'd say that a size 5 screw is the minimum to get a decent grip - if I had 6's to hand I'd have used those.
