if the hole hasn’t gotten too big then these screw in wall fixings grip plasterboard better than rawlplugs
If the plasterboard is pretty ropey though you might be better screwing a batten to the wall – screwing to the timbers behind the boards- then screwing the rail to thatPosted 4 years agoMurrayMember
If the hole is big, poke a bit of plaster board (or even cardboard) through the hole and fix with NoMoreNails against the back of the existing board. You may need to use a screw in the board to allow you to pull it flush. When it’s done, remove the screw and fill as normal. Then mount your rail on the studs not the board 🙂Posted 4 years agoD28boyMember
Hi looking for some expert advice re an unattached towel rail.
Basically my incapacitated son lent on the towel rail and ripped it out of the wall. This resulted in two larger holes were the rawl plugs were fitted in a cheap plasterboard wall. The plasterboard/wall is very powdery so if I fill the hole with polyfiller it doesn’t take. I’ve tried fitting bigger rawl plugs but they just come out as well. Is there any way of fixing this back on without just moving the whole thing an inch or so left or right (which would mean that it no longer central in the short wall it’s mounted on)…
I’m fed up with this as I’ve had four attempts already!Posted 4 years ago
