WETNFIX (20 Discs) - Fixing Wall Plugs Fast! No Need to Fill or redrill. Free UK delivery
About this deal
A deeper hole would make no difference and can't use a larger bolt due to the bracket type and size. Insert this plug into the hole with a turning action, making sure it fits snugly (if still loose add another pad), tap it gently with a hammer ensuring it is flush with the wall. Select a rawlplug, take one pad of WETNFIX ® and wet it in a container with some water, shake off any excess.
Our company, Monarch International (UK) Ltd has been in business for over 10 years and our product WETNFIX ® has proved to be an enormous success within the trade and retail industries, selling in the UK, Germany, Spain, Netherlands, Canada and the USA. I knew I was on to something when I realised that other people encounter the same problem, so I developed WETNFIX ® with the backing and support of my son Craig.
Drilled deeper holes and used Wet n Fix, then left it a while as another job was being done and fixed cutain pole brackets with thicker and longer screws.
In 2004 we were awarded The Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation and were extremely privileged to be invited to Buckingham Palace to meet Her Majesty the Queen. I am extremely proud to have taken part in helping to conceive an amazing product that deals with a frustrating DIY problem.It eliminates the need to fill or redrill, so you can fix fixtures and fittings in their intended position almost instantly. The special formulated gypsum which a WETNFIX ® pad is impregnated with, bonds naturally to almost all building materials, such as masonry, brickwork, ceramic, wood and plasterboard, it won't displace the plug a fixing is applied.
However is perfectly reasonable to fix fittings in a bathroom, such a toillet paper holder, a unit, a shelf, a towel rack, a shower fixture/rail, a hook for hanging picture frame, or where the wall plug itself is covered by the fixture. I can drill deeper holes and use longer screws, but the holes near the wall surface are now conical, so they will not support the screws very well. Due to the type of fixing, I can't change the hole location so I was wondering if I could inject the hole with hot glue then hammer in the wall plug before the glue sets.
a) I think it would cool too quickly due to the mass and thermal properties of the wall and b) the hot glue would get coated in sand/mortar bits and not hold. The WETNFIX ® pad is simply dipped into water for 2/3 seconds, with the excess water shaken off, the WETNFIX ® pad is moulded around the plug and inserted into the hole. Select a rawlplug and appropiate screw, take one pad and wet it in a container with some water, shake off any excess.
