    If you can find them in boxes of less than 100, use these

    click

    Alternatively, find a window fitter and cadge a couple off him.

    I've used these screws into all sorts.

    They are holding the shelves up in my garage, direct into breeze block with no plug, they are holding the sink up in my bathroom direct to concrete, and the held up a 21" CRT on a bracket direct into timber. I am yet to find a stronger fixing that is easier to use into concrete/brick.

    All you need on top is a long enough masonary drill, 5.5mm IIRC

    Cheers

    the only difference between using a 70mm coach screw and a 100mm coach screw with this type of plug is the amount that pokes out the back of the plug when fully tightened against the wall.

    My other concern using this method is the amount of the shaft that is unthreaded. unless your wall mount is really thick, you could end up with an unthreaded portion of it in your plug.

    Not trying to say its the wrong way, but not the right way for me.

    Cheers

    If using 100mm i tend to cut the tip off a nylon plug and use two. :thumbsup:
