Unless you are lucky enough to find a stud or a noggin in the right spot, fixing into plasterboard can be hit-and-miss affair.
Traditional plasterboard fixings, although initially secure often fail over time. Gripit fixings are unique plasterboard fixings, manufactured in the UK, that provide the perfect solution to this enduring problem. They are easy to position and fit, and provide a strong, secure fixing for most wall-mounted items. The design spreads the load over twice the diameter of the fixing ensuring the even distribution of any stresses over a wide area.
Suitable for use in 9.5 to 15mm thick plasterboard, Gripit fixings are easy to fit. Mark the location, drill the hole using the recommended size flat bit and tap in the Gripit. Push in the insert with a screwdriver and a simple twist spreads the Gripit wings behind the board; job done. The mixed pack comprises eight of each size, yellow, red, brown and blue, each size of Gripit fixing comes with suitable screws. Gripit fixings are reusable: simply turn wing screws to release and remove.
If you are unfortunate enough encounter double thickness plasterboard or dot and dab adhesive, the Gripit Undercutting Tool accessory creates a recess for the wings to rotate into place.

Excellent - does exactly what it says on the tin!!Have used them several times including hanging my daughter's flat screen TV on the wall. Saw them first on Dragon's Den and have used them ever since they became available in Wickes. Not a new product but excellent to use.
