This is my post about The Duck Foot – a solution to your plasterboard fixings woes! To view the full post and video click here.
I love a shelf me, it’s one of the easiest ways to make a plain wall interesting. Of course you can also ring the changes depending on your mood.
But over and over again I come across shelves that don’t work. By that I mean they keep falling down – aaaaaargh!
Nine times out of 10 it’s because they haven’t been fixed properly to a hollow plasterboard wall.
But now I’ve come across the perfect solution to this first world problem ‘The Duck Foot‘.
Here’s how it works:
1. You connect The Duck Foot to your bit holder.
2. Drill it directly into the wall.
3. Stop when the plastic leg touches the wall.
4. Bend the plastic leg and push The Duck Foot into the drilled hole.
5. Insert the screw to the attachment and push it into the anchor.
6. Tighten the screw until it stops.
It works on hollow, internal, single or double layer plasterboard walls of 12- 26mm. You can knock on your wall to hear if it’s hollow behind.
You don’t need any special tools or to be skilled to use this by the way.
It only makes a 12mm hole and will take up to 50kg in sheer load. So if you need to put up TVs, mirrors, kitchen units, curtain rails or heavy lighting – The Duck Foot will be your friend.
Oh and cats and small children are also not a problem – can you just imagine how much fun we had filming this video?!
