I have several brackets that are attached to plasterboard walls with raw plugs and due to some heavy use by children the raw plugs have become loose in the wall and now need to be replaced. How do I repair the plasterboard wall in the immediate area of the fitting so that I can redrill and replace the raw plugs? I don't want to move the brackets to a new location.
HI Tim W
Best relocate plugs and fill in holes with something like poly filler.
If walls are Hollow best use Hollow Wall Anchors instead of plugs, you can get them at Builders Merchants and DIY stores. Just as easy to install, a little more expensive but do the job 10 time better.
Hope this was useful
