Which sort of wallplug for brick/masonry do posters here prefer?
(1) a plastic wallplug which looks like a sort of cylinder (and looks
parallel when seen in profile).
(2) a wallplug which tapers a bit (which looks a bit like a cone) and
often has a row of small bumps at the pointed end.
I ask this because a lot of products I buy which need to be fixed on
the wall come with two screws and two "conical" wallplugs.
Personally, I can't really see how I drill a snug hole for a conical
plug. In which circumastances I would want to use such a plug? Am I
overlooking a use which this sort of wallplug is designed for?
