FIXING TO PLASTERBOARD AND PLASTERBOARD FIXINGS A very popular question to DIYdoctor is "how can I fix things to plasterboard walls?". There are a variety of fixing available just for this but what you cannot do is use ordinary wall plugs. The wall plugs do expand as you screw into them, but the plasterboard is soft and the expansion simply widens the hole you have put the plug into. In no time at all it will work loose. Our photographs below are done using a small piece of plywood as we did not have any plasterboard on site. Plasterboard comes in 3/8 inch and ½ inch sizes and is larger than the board we used. Any gaps therefore will not occur. Please note that none of these products will enable you to fix to lathe and plaster walls or ceilings. Please go to our fixing to lathe and plaster project for information about that. To fix to plasterboard properly you need to use proprietary fixings. This applies to hollow doors also. Below are a variety of fixing available. You can click on the images to buy.
