Rated 5 out of 5Â by wustergeist Good product
Used on a few occasions, found a 6mm SDS drill is adequate as a pilot hole in concrete. Good value

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Lark So easy to use
So much easier to use to attach a frame to the wall than plugs. I don't know why I hadn't discovered these years ago.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by FredBristol Much better than plugs
Fixing panels to an uneven brick wall was a pain using wall plugs: drill panel, drill through and mark wall, remove panel, drill holes for plugs and insert plugs. Replace panel and try and line it up with all the plugs'
Long 6 mm drill through panel into wall, 7.5 mm through panel, insert screw - an impact driver helps - and on to the next with perfect alignment every time. And the screws can be easily loosened to allow panel adjustment.
Pro: Quicker, easier
Con: More expensive, impact power screwdriver advisable

Rated 5 out of 5Â by hampsteadb excellent solution for fixing
We needed to securely fasten some steel bicycle hanging hooks to a breeze block wall in our Giant bicycle shop in the Docklands
From all the research I did, I was steered away from the traditional solution of plastic plugs and screws towards this specialist product.
Was not sure at first how / if it would work, but drilling a pilot hole with 6mm x 150mm masonry bit and then fixing 18 of the steel plates to the breeze block wall, has worked extremely well. We even had a member of staff hang off the lowest plate to check the load strength of the fixing.
These plates will take even electric bikes (around 25kg) no problem thanks to these excellent fixings, which were very easy to install using the supplied T30 bit and our cordless drill / driver
