Rawlplug Heavy Duty Setting Tool is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 252000.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Tool Tried the cheaper ones and they wear quickly and need replacing . This is built to last so is worth the extra .

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very mixed Worked very well for a half-dozen 52mm M4 fixings then got worse and worse over 18 M5 fittings. The last half dozen were a mighty struggle. Device trigger doesn't seem to have sufficient grip on the drive rod to pull the screw back and collapse the anchor. Twisting the rod with pliers to get a new grip point helped, but not much. So, good for M4 anchors, not good for M5

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple Read up on this before purchasing, works well. I only had a 10mm drill bit but Rawlplug was persuaded to go in. TV still on wall. Would now use nothing else for heavy objects on stud walls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect little tool These fixings are perfect for stud walls and this tool makes fixing the anchors easy to fit without damaging the hole and fast!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Simple tool, seemingly weak I've had two of these tools now. The first was the regular Screwfix unbranded one which stopped working after 30 or so fixings. The rod just stopped gripping and pulling the fixing screw out. Then I got this heavy duty one. It seemed to work intermittently, sometimes just not doing what it should and then it fell apart. The trigger release tab and all the springs just fell to bits. This was after one evening of use. It's a simple tool but seemingly one which is just not built strong enough. Either that or I'm just stronger than a superhero. I have a replacement now which so far is working ok(after a day of use) but the lady in Screwfix said that quite a few people had been bringing these tools back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Early Days But Seems Excellent Only needed to install 2 Intersets for a job at son's flat so hoped to get away with setting them with a screwdriver. No chance. Plasterboard just crumbled away so had to get a setting tool. After reading reviews of the two Rawlplug models, plus those of a couple of other brands, decided on this one for apparently rugged and dependable build quality. Tool worked perfectly. Dead easy. Seems very robust, just as others have claimed. One tip born out of experience - don't use it at night in a block of flats. When you squeeze the release lever to detach the tool after setting, the puller-rod thingy flies back with an almighty bang that reverberates throughout the walls and wakes every body up. Scoring: Features - it only has two, set and release, hence the 3 stars. Reliability - 3 stars because I've only set 2 plugs to date. If I ever get to 100 and it's still working perfectly I'll up that to 5 stars.
