How It Works
Just DRILL: (1) Mark out the centreline positions where the Grip It wall fixings are to be installed. (2) Then drill the required number of holes in the plasterboard wall. You will require the same size flat head drill bit as the fixing you are using (i.e 18mm). This is to cut out the right size hole in the plasterboard wall. If you think you may hit the stud frame behind the plasterboard wall, then we recommend using a Grip It Undercutting tool as well. We sell the whole pack. Which includes all the tools to complete the job.
Just TAP: (1) Position the Grip It fixing in the hole – wings first. (2) Then gently tap the fixing into the hole until the fixing settles down flush with the plasterboard wall surface.
Just TURN: (3) You now need to lock the backing wings of the fixing in place. You do this by using a screwdriver and turning it clockwise. All done! To remove the Grip It fixing, turn anti-clockwise so the wings close and out comes the fixing.
