Wall plugs also called anchors or Rawlplugs give you a firm grip when fixing to walls. These expand against the hole you have drilled into the masonry and create a really tight-fitting hold on the screw. Using plugs is an easy way when you have a perfect wall; one that is easy to drill is firm and thick enough to take a wall plug. Wall plugs also come colour coded to make it easy to identify during fixing. Usually these are made in red, blue, yellow and brown.
There are many forms of wall plug, but the most common principle of this tool is a soft material with a tapering end. After inserting the plug loosely into a drilled hole, it is tightened using a screw. As the screw enters the plug, the plug expands making a tight fit. Such anchors can attach one object to another when screws, nails, adhesives are found to be ineffective. Wall plugs come in many different types and offer different levels of strength and compatibility with different types of surfaces.
