Wall Plugs Overview
Currently we stock and supply 4 different types of wall plug, from standard tapered wall plugs to our amazing uniplug universal wall plugs (which work in any substrate solid or hollow). You can find screw charts on any of the individual category pages to give you further information on which size screws to use with our wall plugs. Within this category is also our range of plastic shim packers.
Wall Plug Fasteners General Features
Wall plugs are used by inserting the plug into a pre-drilled hole in either your concrete or brickwork and then inserting the correct size screws into the plug. Each wall pug has slightly different features, plastic wall plugs for instance are very economical and take small gauge screws, nylon wall plugs are generally a bit bigger, take larger gauge or coarser thread screws and have wings to prevent the plug turning during installation. Our uniplug universal wall plugs can take multiple size screws and will fasten into any substrate. This is just a quick guide, so please view each individual product page for exact load weights and recommendations.
Wall plugs are designed to be used in conjunction with a screw fixing, they are the most common form of masonry and concrete fastener available on the market. Firstly drill the correct size pilot hole into your masonry, brickwork or concrete. Then drive the correlating screw size into the plug. As you drive the screw into the wall plug, it will force the plug to expand outward, compressing against the masonry or brickwork and securely fastening into your substrate.

Types of Plugs in this Range?
Wall Plug Range
UniPlug - Universal Wall Plug
Our high performance UniPlugs are manufactured for us in Denmark from high density PA6 Nylon using the latest in plug technology and materials. Designed for use in any material, with any screw or fixing, these universal plugs can be installed in brickwork, solid concrete, plasterboard, aerated concrete (hebel), timber, metal and plastics.
Featuring a collared head to stop them falling in the drill hole or cavity, plus high impact load and knock in protection to stop them bending or crushing when hammered in. Deep double body flutes prevent the UniPlug from spinning in the drill hole. They are designed to automatically 'knot' in cavities and behind boards if no solid fix can be found so are extremely useful in all substrates and will cover all masonry fastening applications with 1 plug.
Wall Plugs Nylon
High quality nylon flush head wall plugs for use with all screw fixings in masonry and concrete. Both corrosion and chemical resistant, nylon wall plugs are designed not to split, so they're perfect for coarse thread screws such as coach screws. Nylon wall plugs are available in diameters 6mm, 7mm, 8mm, 10mm and 12mm for screw sizes 6g through to m12 coach screw applications.
Built-in load and knock in protection prevents distortion on installation, while the winged body prevents rotation in the drill hole. Suitable for concrete, brick work, hebel sheeting, aerated concrete and all other masonry substrates.
