Rawlplug Self-Drill Plasterboard Fixings Metal 32mm Pack of 100
Not steel as we know it
Purchased to fix a lightweight cooker hood to a plasterboard wall. The tips have a tendency to break off as they push through the plaster. This happened with the only 2 I have so far used meaning I had to dig the tips out of the plaster with pliers before I could try again. Once they dig into the board behind the plaster they seem OK but if that happens every time you're going to waste an awful lot of fixings. Obviously not very strong steel.

a must have
the only fixing i have found that works well in plasterboard. yes i have had the occasional failure but not many and certainly works a lot better than some of the other methods/

metal plasterboard fixings
Unlike other reviewers I did not find these to work well at all. They pulled out from the dry wall plasterboard just with the weight of the curtain pole - without the curtains ever getting near!
