Rated 3 out of 5 by from Look good but fit carefully Needed a 4.5mm pilot hole plus grease on the thread for the nearest sized socket I had to drive them home. Beforehand the socket just kept slipping. Also the holes on the hopper (Floplast cast iron effect ogee) are a lot larger than the screw thread, so to get a neat finish, make sure to mark the holes and drill in the centre. (Too early for some review ratings, so 3 stars.)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Look good, useless in action Sorry Floplast, your guttering is good, but these complementary fixings are terrible. I've no idea what is supposed to turn them - probably a socket, but they are flared diameter so insecure fit even if you've a 12-point socket small enough. The head driving faces are soft plastic so mash up easily. Here's a pro tip - get your designer to actually use the product with commonly available tools, next time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than screws I've used these fixings for quite some time now and they look fantastic. I hate to stand back and look at some cast iron effect downpipes I've just installed to see screws, it defeats the whole object of using cast iron effect guttering and downpipes. I've never had a head come off yet, fixing into brick (with a plug) or wood, as long as a pilot hole is drilled in the wood first, as should be common practice. I use a socket set to drive them (see picture) as I fear an impact wrench would damage them. Only downside is the price, rather steep for what they are, and I can't find anyone else who does anything similar.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doest work The head of this screw is made of cheap plastic - its mashed up before its half in. Truly useless. Would look good if it worked.

Asked by: Doitrightnoworelse

What size 12 point star socket is required for the FloPlast Cast Iron Effect Fixings?

Asked by: AndyH942
Fixing instructions for the FC50 (Cast Iron fixing bolts) The FC50 is a 12 gauge x 50mm Stainless Steel bolt, that requires a 12mm, 12 point star head socket to tighten it. When using these fixings on Ogee and Rectangular Hoppers we recommend that a 3/4” tap washer is used.
