Spit Driva Plus Cavity Fixings Metal 39mm Pack of 100
Brilliant plasterboard fixings
I used 35mm screw-in fixings to hold a floor-standing shelf unit against a plasterboard wall and the shelf ripped them straight out immediately; I put Driva Plus fixings in the same holes and they are absolutely rock solid.
You do have to pre-screw them first to stop them failing to deploy as the silver coating glues them shut - grip it in grips and power drive a screw into it until the mechanism loosens and then withdraw the screw - which is the only reason I haven't given them 5 stars across the board. Highly recommended.

Used these to fit a large heavy mirror to a plasterboard stud wall.
Would advise that you pre-screw before fitting into the plasterboard. I also pilot drilled the wall to check there was no obstruction behind plasterboard
Don't over-tighten in plasterboard.
Good strong fixing.

heavy duty fixings
Was doubtful after reading previous reviews, but decided to use these for refitting a Hair Salon where heavy mirrors and fittings needed attaching to plasterboard walls (including insulated board), They performed perfectly, i have now fitted all 100 (using cordless drill) and only had one failure where the toggle didn't deploy, this i believe was due to fitting the screw too fast, if you take your time you can hear/feel the toggle deploy, These are the best fixings, will be getting another box soon

weak dear plasterboard fixings
usable if you pre-drive the screw beforehand & then remove, of the dozen or so l have used so far two broke if they were just driven into the plasterboard & then the securing screw was used. once secured, they offer more security than just the ordinary screw in type.
