Fischer High Performance Universal Plugs UX8 4.5-6 x 50mm 100 Pack is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tight as ducks are. Sold! The idea behind this product is that in a hole, cavity or gap the screwing will pull the end of this plug toward the beginning and cause it to 'knot up' behind the entrance of the hole. This is actually quite a good idea and does indeed perform well in more blocked-in areas I couldn't feasibly use a cavity interset type of fixing. However, with an 8mm hole drilled by an Erbauer tile drill in ceramic tile, these things simply don't go in. They go in partially, but no amount of rubber malletting will get them much further with any confidence or safety for the tile. Each and every one I have fitted in such holes in such a substrate I have had to trim with a stanley knife, mainly to get rid of the aerodynamic 'flights' along the beginning area. In some cases I'd also trim the flange after it was fully home, to give a flush fit. Other than tile drilled holes, they're ideal. I suspect that these are the ones to blame rather than the tile drill bit, and that these have a slightly fictional idea of their own size - an easy thing to do, I'm sure we all agree.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall good product BUT. Fitting some heavy units in a bathroom. So, I do not trust attaching to tiles and plasrboard, but drill through clearance to solid walls and use long screws. I used 5mm x 75 lg. screws. The only issue I had with these is that the screws do not engage thread wise in the plug for the first half an inch. This is probably done to attach to plasterboard and tiles so the plug doesn't expand and burst and crack the tiles. But mushrooms out pulling the item to the wall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Expensive but top quality Probably the best all round wall plugs with great holding power. there are much cheaper ones but worth the extra in this case.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Neat job Ran out of the plugs I was using and found one of these ones in my tool box by chance (must have been one of my dad's) and it did a fantastic job - miles better than the ones I'd initially been using. It instantly felt more secure and, as it fit the hole better, had a neater finish afterwards. Had to find them for myself and plan to use them in all jobs going forward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top product Bought these after reading the reviews and have not been disappointed. Using to fix bathroom fittings to tile on plasterboard. They probably fit OK into a loose 8mm hole in a plastered wall, but in a precise 8mm hole in tiles they are ultra tight. So tight there was a danger of cracking the tiles when trying hammer them in. Solved by cutting off the fins near the head and tapping in with a piece of wood. Every one I've used has been rock solid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wouldn't use anything else Great product, I use these when installing garage doors and anything else where I want a secure heavy duty fixing, a bit expensive but worth it for the piece of mind.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great plugs Just got through a box of hundred of these plugs and have had no problems with any, once they're in they're in so bought another box..
