Rated 5 out of 5Â by Medals Strong screw tie
Brought these to tie in a set of garden steps and a further retaining wall to an existing brick retaining wall. Easy to fit and so far so good only time will tell. Had a number left over which are no holding up tools in the shed like others have mentioned.

A very sturdy tie which has come in useful for more than just a tie. Handy hook for storage too

I would recommend these and have specified them on a couple of jobs.
Together with Fischer S8 plugs they make a practical fixing for wall starting and blocking up.
I can't comment on their long term durability and have always given them at least 40mm of cover with 1:1:6 so can only I hope they will last longer than I do.
They also make a handy fixing to restrain temporary access towers. I used 2 in to brickwork together with webbing straps and found myself really leaning on them to core through 225mm of concrete today. A 107mm core, so a lot of leaning and no pull out!
I would give them 5 stars if they were made of stainless steel
