Just thought I would create a post to recommend a new type of
plasterboard fixing on the market that I have been using. Grip It
Its a universal fixing that caters for Dot and Dab, Cavity Walls,
Insulation back plasterboard and double thickness. I have been using
them for attaching radiators and the like to walls where my brother who
is a kitchen fitter is using them to hang cabinets.
Would strongly recommend that you have a look at them and give them a go
because to me its a solution to a long lasting problem

Please see this youtube video:
'Heavy Duty Plasterboard Fixings - Grip It Fixings Installation -
YouTube' ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgrX236-4UY )
If you also see there other video it clearly shows someone hanging off a
plasterboard wall. 'Heavy / Duty / Plasterboard / Fixings'
(http://www.gripitfixings.co.uk ) clearly state the loadings of the
fixings and these have been tested in plasterboard - a radiator/kitchen
cupboard would not weight over 180kgs! (that is saying you just use one
grip it fixing)
Only a dedicated bodger would fix kitchen cupboards to plasterboard.
Same applies to radiators. And only a spamming prat would go on and on
about it, just showing he has no idea about how loads are applied in

After the "plasterer" who'd I'd contracted to replaster my kitched
dobbed'n'dabbed it I had to use six-inch screws to fix the wall
cupboards back in place.
...after I'd dug out the cable he'd put a chisel through and then
"helpfully" tugged up at a diagonal through the floor to rewire. It
was pulled so tight it was on the point of pulling out of the screws
on the next socket.

Well, hello, big boy.
I'm so glad you could drop in - me and the boys were just wondering
what to do this evening. You'll do. Leave your name and number in your
next post and we'll be around to see to you shortly.

Much better to use drylinepro on dot and dab and i put my hand up and admit to
inventing it! Very proud of it I am too!!
oh feck the place is getting overrun with them
I like Rigifix (and have no connection other than use)
Now that is a nice fixing, more rigid than the glorified frame fixings
being touted, proper machine screw thread fixing and better prices too.
The other has its place too but it needs to drop below a quid a pop or
it's not going anywhere.
Oh, and lest we forget, diybanter is third rate rip off of usenet.
