About this deal

When using wall plugs, as a screw is screwed into one it expands and bites into the sides of the hole it’s inserted into holding it in place, but as plasterboard is soft, the expansion of the plug simply widens the hole you have put it into and in no time at all it will work loose and fall out.

Small countersink screws are normally used to fix it in position as the fact they’re recessed prevents them from binding and stopping the object closing correctly. Additionally, before starting any work it is always a very good idea to run over the area that you are about to work on with a stud detector to make sure that there are no pipes or wires that you are about to drill or screw into.

This is a medium grade fixing and is not really suitable for large, heavy objects and is more suited to holding very small cupboards, small, lightweight shelves, utensil clips and the similar.

For example, a countersunk screw with a flat head will rest flush with whatever it is embedded into, so start the measurement at the top of the screw head.

They are not as strong as butt hinges but can be used for light-weight doors and small box construction. These hinges are generally rather small and delicate and are normally used in fine furniture making and the similar. Barrel hinges are in most cases made from brass and they come in 2 sections; a barrel either side and a hinge joining them together.
