Rated 4 out of 5Â by ValveAmpTech Rawlplug Interset Tool
I've been using spring toggles for years when fixing things to plasterboard. The problem with them was the size of the hole which had to be drilled; large and difficult to position accurately. These Interset fittings use a much smaller hole, and using the tool speeds up the installation. I really like the ability to remove the fixing screw/bolt without sacrificing the fixing. A few things to note: don't drill too small a hole, as forcing the fixing through the plasterboard may compress the 'wings' slightly, making them more difficult to tighten; the screws provided with the shorter fixings may be too short to allow them to be unscrewed the required 10mm to fit into the tool (if that's the case, simply use a longer screw when installing them, and swop it for the shorter one after the interset has been installed); don't be tempted to over compress the fixing - this may damage the tool; and finally, use Rawlplug Intersets, as similar fittings from other manufacturers may not work correctly, requiring much more pressure to compress, which may also damage the tool. All in all, an efficient way of fitting stuff on to plasterboard!

Always had problems with plaseterboard fixings either scoring the palsterboard walls or dropping down the cavity between the plasterboard and the air brick.
