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

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.
