Fischer Nylon UX-R Plug with Screws 8mm (20 Pack) is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from And the dimensions are... Here are the dimensions that are missing from the listing. The back of the packet says that it is for an 8mm drill, minimum drill hole depth 60mm, screw is 5mm x 70mm, and the maximum fixing thickness is 20mm. The actual diameter of the plug is 8.5mm (to be a tight fit in the hole, I guess), plus ribs. The actual length of the plug is 51mm. The actual measurements of the screw are: 76mm long; major diameter of the threaded part is 4.9mm (i.e. would just pass through a 4.9mm hole); diameter of the plain part of the shank is 3.7mm. I find these plugs handy for fixing things to plasterboard walls (Paramount). As you tighten them, the far end of it bunches up and pulls tight to the wall. And if you change your mind about where it is (you replace your mirror later on with a different one, perhaps), you take the screw out, drill the lipped top off the plug, knock the plug into the cavity, and fill the hole.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Description Why is there no description of screw and plug size, length etc. Bit stupid don’t you think...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A SUPERIOR WALL PLUG Fischer wall plugs are a cut above your average wall plug as a lot of thought and effort has gone into the design and manufacture of these plugs - they deploy into different shapes depending on the type of material they are being inserted into (e.g. masonry, plasterboard, brick or a combination of these materials) which provides superior anchoring strength in comparison to less sophisticated plugs. You can check out the official videos on Youtube and PDF guides for these plugs to see what I mean - I used the plugs last weekend to secure various items of shelving and other fixtures which required inserting them into various materials from thin plasterboard to tile/plasterboard to exterior brickwork - the plugs provided very strong and secure anchoring in all cases and lived up to my expectations. I recommend these wall plugs.
