Rawlplug Hollow Wall Anchors M4 x 40mm Pack of 20
Perfect for plasterboard
For plasterboard I now only use Intersets as they are the only reliable fixings. Plastic plugs and self drill do not hold..
I needed to fix the hinge for child gate on stairs and needed the smaller M4 size. These were ideal as the M5 ones I had were too large.
I do recommend using the fixing tool.

Meh... They'll do!
The first two I used broke in the wall, the collar on the outside just came off - shoddy welds! The others I have used seem to be holding up well.
I believe the item is overpriced, but they didn't have any other M4 sized screw anchors in stock.
Personally the quality of these could be a little better and also the option of a 10 pack instead of a 20 pack only would be appreciated!

The thread on the screw is very poor quality and 4 out of 5 of these anchors will damage the thread when attempting to tighten them with a screwdriver.
I had bought previously the same type of fixing from well known furniture store and it worked without any problems so here it is clearly problem with the quality of the material or design.
Would definitely not recommend. N.B. returning it at local ScrewFix was NOT as straightforward as I would imagine!

These anchors are the only certain way to secure items to a plasterboard wall. Essential for things like curtain poles, towel rails which always get pulled and work loose with normal plugs.
Definitely recommend use of the setting tool.
My only complaint is that the odd one has a poor thread which can pull out when setting or strip when tightening. I didn't have this problem on the first ones I bought. I think the quality is not quite what it was.
