Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Floating Shelves I bought a set of eight of these to put up some floating shelves on a plasterboard wall. They are so straightforward to use and such a clever design. The Mrs was delighted, so much so, I've had to buy another lot!! Can't fault them at all!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good solid Plasterboard fixing Not the cheapest fixings, but I was nervous trying to hang a fairly heavy mirror on a plasterboard wall with conventional wallplugs. These provided a quick, simple and solid answer. More obvious in the wall than a standard plug, but they are covered by the mirror!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Plaster board fixings First time I have used theses. You have to put a 15mm hole in the plaster board but they do give a good firm fixing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gripit plasterboard fixing I’m no workman, but I like to try and do things myself. These were super easy to use! Does exactly what it says on the packet! Easy to assemble and you’re away! I hung a 43” TV on the wall using only two fixings and holds it absolutely no problem! Will definitely use these again!

Use on 12mm board on Ceiling?

I'm looking to place a 1kg pendant light on the ceiling to replace an old chandelier. There is a secure hook fixing for the old but the bracket for the new does not fit. Can I use these as a secondary support if I can fashion a way to use the secure hook?

Suitable for 8-gauge screws?

I need to use particular mirror screws for mounting a heavy mirror, which are 8-gauge (4.2mm). Will these provide a solid fix in this size Gripit (specification is 5mm)?

Hanging heavy light fixture

Can this be used to hang heavy light fixture from the plasterboard ceiling? The light is about 13kg-15kg
Asked by: BzBz17
Gripits can be installed in plasterboard ceilings using the exact same installation method as if being installed into walls. All Gripits have a safe load of 20kg (per fixing) when installed into plasterboard ceiling!
