Needs a 9mm Maronry Drill!
This product could be really good, but you try to find a 9mm sds masonry drill. 8mm is too small and you risk the heads snapping off when you hammer them in. 10mm is too big and they fall out.
I used an 8mm sds drill and 'waggled it about' to make the hole bigger. Not very accurate, but did the job.
So, Screwfix please redesign with either an 8 or 10mm drill in mind!

9mm drill required.
Like other reviewers, I found these very handy
and time saving, but beware. A 9mm drill is the
optimum size for holes into masonry. Screwfix
do not stock a 9mm SDS drill. I used a SDS 8mm, then opened out with a 9.5mm that I could
use in the battery drill. Fixings seem to be solid and are virtually impossible to pull out.
Although I did not use all mounts that I bought, I
will keep these handy as they can be used with
in masonry with cable ties for a wide variety of

Great for fixing cable runs
Used loads of these in brick, cinder and concrete blocks. Agree with other reviewers that drilled hole size needs to be accurate and at 8mm in hard brick or concrete they can be a little tight, careful use of hammer usually gets them in. Only broke heads off a few in several hundreds used, molding design could be improved if the stem between vanes and head was strengthened by lengthwise buttresses to give a '+' cross section. Otherwise a great product for well supported tidy cable runs especially when used for heavier 6mm and 10mm T&E cables.
