Came home tonight to find my 4 year old had managed to pull our front room
curtains down, apparently she was just hiding behind them when the rod,
fixings and all just lept from the wall - hmmm
I've had a look at the damage and no big deal to patch up the plaster etc,
but the material the brackets were screwed into is very soft and crumbly.
Not sure what it is but a poke with a screwdriver easily gouges it.
What's the best sort of fixing to use in this material to try and make the
arrangement a little more child proof ! Had a quick look on the Screwfix
site and thinking injection resin may be the way to go but is there anything
better. (If resin is the way to go how do you use it, should I repair the
area with plaster, drill new holes, inject and screw or do I still use
