im tryin to hang a mirror, about 13kgs. i have plasterboard walls. i tried using a hollow wall anchor, however when tryin to set the anchor legs with a screwdriver the teeth on the shoulder of the fitting chewed up the plasterboard and just would not bite at all.
ive read somewhere to try a setting tool.
would a setting tool eliminate this problem? does it use a different method without relying on the teeth gripping to open the anchor behind the plasterboard.
Try a different type of plasterboard fixing, I have always found the ones which look like a corkscrew to be successful but you may have to shorten them if you are screwing into a dry-lined wall.
