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

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Chil 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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by claonaite They seem to work
I've only used a few of these so far but they seem to be working. An 8mm drill gives a hole that is slightly too tight. Tapping the plugs in with a hammer breaks off some of the ribs, but enough are left to hold the plugs tight. I had to remove one and I couldn't shift it, so I had to drill it out.
