A must buy for wall anchors
Having used wall anchors without this and had a few challenges, I bought the setting tool and the job is now easier, quicker and very accurate. I suggest screwfix sells a pack with setting tool and a selection of fixings.

Rubbish, don't bother
Bought this as had a load of anchors to fit. Initially very good, easy to use but just after 5 anchors started slipping and would not fasten any more. Returned to Screwfix for a refund.

Essential bit of kit
The most important thing to note from any of the reviews on this item is to ensure you back out the screws in the anchors by at least 10mm. If you don't do this then excessive force is required and is probably the reason for 99% of the negative comments. Do it right and absolutely no force at all is needed to achieve a solid fixing
Good product at a fraction of the cost of the Fischer one. Wish I'd tried this type of hollow wall fixing previously as they seem far superior to others I've tried previously

After making a mess with the fixings rotating in the hole whilst tightening up (barbs not fixing into the plasterboard), I decided to buy one of these to set the fittings - wished I had bought one years ago - quick, easy to use and fittings are secure each and every time.
Saves time and money - what else can I say?
Not given 5 stars for reliability as have only used a few times up to now.
