Rated 1 out of 5 by from High hopes but dissappointed I had a door handle that had fallen off and was not staying put in the hollow door so purchased this product. I attached the handle to one side and it felt quite secure so I was feeling really confident and pleased with my purchase. I attached the handle to the other side and all seemed well. Closed the door to try the product, on performing the grand opening of the door the handle, complete with screws in fixings, pulled out like a knife out of butter. The fixings had not expanded in any way to create a grip. I even changed the position of the handle and tried again but it hasn't made the slightest difference and I still have no handle attached to my door. What am I gonna do?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All you need comes with drill Tried many variations on a theme. Cheap but not good quality. Bonus having a drill bit in pack.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice idea, doesn't work The idea is sound: when the screw bites, the distal portion of the fixing should pull back, opening the wings on the proximal part , thus securing well to a thin panel. The drill's ace (really accurate due to the central cutting point), and the fittings insert really well and snugly so they don't turn. However, when I tighten a No.6 screw, the thread on the distal part strips before the fitting tightens itself into place, meaning the screw remains loose and the fitting isn't secure. A No.8 screw's too big. Needs a little re-engineering to make the distal part stronger for a reliable fix. I got some joy stuffing plumbing tape into the fixing so the screw bites better, but I shouldn't have to. Disappointing performance, but I hope they get improved in a future model, as it's nearly there!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Tried to put a lock on a toilet door but it was only going into the hardboard so not secure. Used the hollow door plugs and completed the job. Great that it comes with right size drill and screw size. Would be more helpful if it came complete with right size screws as well though.

Does anybody know what length of screws these are suitable for?

Asked by: TKonion
The plugs work because the tip is pulled towards the top of the plug causing it to expand in the door panel. The plug length is 24mm. The screw must be long enough to grip the tip of the plug after passing through the item that is being fixed to the door. A 30mm 3.5mm screw would be good for most hooks but extra length might be needed. 25mm long screws do not work, they are not long enough to grip the tip of the plug properly. Don't use 4mm wide screws as there is then a risk of snapping the plug into 2 bits. Plasplugs could do themselves a favour by explaining this on their packaging.
