Rated 3 out of 5Â by Chippy51 Could be better
2nd one I've had from Screwfix.
It's fine for a handful of uses, but when you have 50 fixings to fit, it is useless.
Ist one I had failed to pull the fixing after a few attempts so I exchanged it for a new one and that did the same thing.
If your going to use this regularly, then I'd recommend something stronger.

It makes the installation of anchors so much easier, without messing up the drywall.

I have used these in the past without the tool - thinking it a waste of time.
However, sometimes the fixing has started to rotate in the wall or the thread has bound with dust while tightening the fitting and I have ended up with a mess.
This time I needed to place the fixings accurately and it would be a problem if they were not set first time in the correct location so I bought the setting tool.
Simply insert the head of the screw in the slot on the tool and pump the lever a few times to pull the screw (similar mechanism to a mastic cartridge gun) and activate the grips until it wont tighten any more, then press the release trigger.
The fixing is much more precisely set and a lot quicker than by screwing it up.
Well worth the cost.

Used this to set 12 anchors for 3 radiators. After the first 4 were done the metal at the tip of the tool that grips the anchor had twisted making it unusable.
Looking at other reviews on here it seems I'm not the only one that had this problem.
