I think these are the bees knees. I first saw them in use with plumbers, putting radiators up on stud walls. I've now used them in several jobs where I cannot get a noggin or batten in behind the stud wall or ceiling plasterboard. There are a range of sizes and load bearing versions. Best bought in bulk online: small packages in wholesalers can be pricey.

These are really good fittings and have used them all the time. A bit pricey but worth every penny. Good product and great features as it comes in different sizes.

15th August 2019

I have used these on a couple of occasions recently. I was curious how easy they were to use and how effective. Well on both points I was impressed, they are definitely easy to use. Also very effective, making a sound solid bond to the boarded wall. They are a bit expensive, but many new gadgets are until they become established. A good piece of kit, will be using again probably fairly soon

These are a great idea and do work really well depending on the situation as they are only a strong as the plasterboard holding it if in a damp old boarded wall you have to be a bit careful, bit pricey but I guess took a lot to get designed and manufactured, all in all great product.

I’m always apprehensive about hanging something heavy on plasterboard but these fixings have got me out of jail a couple of times now. Fairly easy to use and do the job well but they are a bit on the expensive side.

Not the best fixing they will do in a pinch but doesn't beat a spring toggle or a hollow anchor for weight holding capabilities but still and okay product.

Amazing fixings can be used for anything from installing radiators to stud walls to flat screen TVs, simple to install I would suggest getting a setting cutter to cut your groove on the inside of the plasterboard as you can come unstuck not being able to the fins fully out in some of the thicker plasterboard walls.

Awful tried these a couple of times and back to using rawl plasterboard fixings and pigtail fixings. Poorly designed not easy to use and the ones I did use fell apart and for the price I dont think fixings should be falling apart. Wont be using again

Lovely kit to use and you can hang things solidly on it. My customers tend to get a bit twitchy when they see me drilling a big hole for the fixing but as soon as that’s done it’s a good fix

Bought some to hang some units. Easy to use and they do the job. Not the cheapest opinion available to do the same job, but would probably use them again.

Hello, review fans. I'm Ben Curry, and you're watching Tool Talk, from Expert Trades.

Today, I'm going to be reviewing the GripIt Plasterboard Fixing. You might have seen these ... Dragons' Den, I think this was. Also, Screwfix are a big stockist and most electrical wholesalers have these in stock now. It might not be the next WAGO block, but it's definitely a new product that's hit the market and it's taken off; I see a lot of people talking about it.

I'm going to open this up. I'm going to show you what's in there, and what you get in the set, and what is a GripIt fixing. So, on the back it starts by telling you all about the fixings, about the color-coding, and what they can actually do and what you can do with them. It shows you on here how you ... You drill a hole, and each one of these in a different size and a different colour has a different hole that you drill. So, you drill a hole with a spade bit, 20 ml. 15, 18, 20 and 25 ml. Of course, GripIt sell those drillbits as well, but you can buy any. And then you push in your GripIt into the plasterboard. You just push it. Tap it in. And you're ready to go.

It's got two little fins that you turn, and I'll show you that in a second. And then you're all set, and then you can just drive your screw into the centre. Now, it comes with the screw that you're supposed to use with it to hold the weight as well. And then it's got a safe load weight alongside it. Now, this is bearing in mind that it's going into plasterboard. Now, plasterboard is only as strong as the plasterboard. However, saying that, I have a mirror hanging in my hallway at home using the blue fixings from here and the mirror's probably 30 kilos and it's been there a year: no problems. So, it is pretty solid.

Now, it says here all the weights have been tested on 15 ml plasterboard, and it's pretty good. That's like the starter set selection box you get. I think I picked this up at Screwfix. Then, in the kit, you get various different colours of these. The different colours, the different sizes and different weights. Now, with each of these you get a screw. So, the yellow ones come with the smallest. The red ones a bit bigger. And then the brown and blue are actually threaded, so you get a 6 and an 8 ml threaded bolt to go into them.

Now, what you can struggle with on these is when you thread that into there, that's one turn, that's two turns; that's only three turns of thread, and already you've only got half an inch of space there. What you can run into is, you've got your fins out on that: whatever you're hanging on the wall has not got enough depth to go through to get a sufficient ... you know, you've only turned it three or four times and you've bottomed out. I don't know what the manufacturer's instructions are, but I've bought my own, longer bolts before to go in.

So, that's it really. That's what you get. It's kind of a weird set-up. You tap it in, and then using these pegs ... So, the hole it recommends you drill is to this size here. And then using these pegs, when you tap it in, they really grab the plasterboard, and then you have to turn these screws here. Let me get a blank one that you can see a bit better. Turn these screws here, and that opens the fins out, which will really grab the plasterboard, so you're ending up with that much grabbing the plasterboard.

Okay. You're never going to hang a massive tonne of weight off just one of these. Normally, if you're holding a TV up, you've got like eight of them in and it does the job. Definitely, it does the job. The centre section as well, when you tighten it up, it kind of clicks. You can push it for depth. There you go. So, you've got a bit more depth on that. And that is where you lose your ... you know, see what I mean with that? Not good.

So, yeah. I've used them a bit. I've not used them a massive amount. I'm not going to tell you I've used packs and packs of these and give you a fully comprehensive review. But I have used them enough to like them, and have to invested in a bit of the set-up kit. These red ones are good. I mean, so it's an 18 ml hole on them and it says it takes a 5 by 30 ml screw. So that, to me, I'd drive 2 inch 10s into that. That's like the perfect size for one of them. Let's say you're mounting a baton to a wall. You've got a 2 inch baton. You can drive your 2 inch 10 through the baton and then into there, and they do a brilliant job for that.

So, yeah. They're good. I'm a fan so far, and I always like a new product and a new gadget to play with. Early adopter, me, eh? Yeah, we'll see. Early adopter with all this stuff on the floor when it's fell off the wall! But, no, hopefully that shouldn't happen. I've had nothing but good experience with them so far.

Most recent when I've used this, was a bathroom medicine cabinet, I suppose they used to be called; bathroom cabinet above a sink. Weighed a tonne. We managed to get one side into the joist, or the stud work. The other side I used ... Well, I started by trying to use the blues and that was when I ran into the issue of not having the right depth of bolts. So we actually went in with the reds, and put some number 10 screws through them. And it was brilliant. Really. It's just absolutely rock-solid. You could hang off it.

So, yeah. That's the GripIt set, multi-kit. I think in Tool Talk, on the app, you can review the different sizes on these. Like I say, my favourites are the reds, but they're all pretty good. Right; that's the GripIt Plasterboard Fixing. I've been Ben Curry. You're watching Tool Talk. Thanks for watching.

Morning, guys. Dave from DA Gas, Heating and Plumbing. Just wanted to show you the GripIts and do a bit of a Tool Talk review on them. So these are what I use for hanging radiators on plasterboard walls. Pop the GripIt into the wall, knock it in, need to drill in an 18 mil hole with the red ones, and it changes with the different size fixings. Once you've knocked it in, small flat head screwdriver, push in and twist. That opens up the wings on the back to stop it being pulled back through.

Pop the other one in. Knock it in flush with the plaster, twist. I'm going to be hanging a 600 by 800 P+ off of these fixings on a plasterboard wall. You know what plasterboard walls are like for hanging heavy objects, especially radiators can be a nightmare.

And that's is there, and it's, you can see how strong that is. Pull it down, there you go, no ... So these red ones here, they reckon they can hold 74 kilos at a safe load. If you get the 25 mil ones, 113 kilos. So you know, pretty good bit of kit. They're not the cheapest things. I get them from Wicks's. You can get them elsewhere. You can probably get them cheaper elsewhere, but just convenience for me. So there you have it. GripIts. Dave Armstrong, DA Gas, Heating and Plumbing.
