Which fixing should I buy?
I have a bathroom cabinet to put up.
It needs to go onto a tiled plasterboard (drywall) wall. Because of the tiles, I can’t use the fixings I normally use to keep heavy objects fixed to the wall. And bog standard rawlplugs aren’t going to do the job.
So what should I buy?
YouTube to the rescue – more specifically, this fine chap at Ultimate Handyman.
As well as the strength of the fixing, I need to consider the price of the fixings, and also, the size of the hole required (which in turn, will also impact the overall cost of the job if I have to buy new drill bits). Plus – I’ve never had to drill into tiles before so the smaller the hole, the better.
Here’s my code to try and visualise what to buy:
What would you go for?
In the end, I had to buy snap toggles (had never heard of them before), they were much easier to install than spring toggles.
Early days, but the cabinet is up, feels solid and worth the time spent on it.
Unlike this post.
Until next time..
