redidrive plasterboard fixings problem

Postby Hydrogenspectrum » Mon May 28, 2007 6:12 pm

I was trying to put a mirror up onto a plasterboard wall, but the holes I needed were very close together. I used the redidrive fixings but because they are wide they wouldn't go next to each other, fell out and left a big hole in the wall. How do I fix the hole and how do I fix my mirror up?

Simply Build It

See our project on filling holes in plasterboard. To fix the mirror after this you need to glue (See our adhesives used at home project) a piece of timber to the wall using gripfil, and screw the mirror fixings to that after letting it set foir a day. The timber only needs to be 10mm thick and obviously slightly wider than the distance between the holes.
