They also claim in the video that it works with lath and plaster! When
I drill into lath and plaster I usually hit the lath. Even pushing it in
between the laths I'm not sure that the back metal bit would necessarily
bend towards the wall - it will hit a knob of hard plaster and possibly
be deflected upwards.
I'd say they would be OK for something that has their centre of mass
close to the wall, but anything further out might begin a rip of the
plasterboard neatly scored by the metalwork, especially if the screws
are overtightened to crush the plaster within.
I'd prefer the GripIts. Round holes are less likely to grow than square?
Having spent a couple of years sitting beneath a couple of tonnes of
manuals on shelves held up by Spur shelving fastened to a plasterboard
wall, I've always been impressed by how much weight it can support.
