Im having trouble fitting a heavy chain door curtain into my bedroom doorway. I have used the raw plugs and L shaped screws provided but i have hit the metal studding behind the plasterboard so the raw plugs and screws dont go in enough. Ive tried to find some short raw plugs that are still wide enough for the drilled holes but i xant get any. Does anyone have any ideas on what to do? I have puctures but dont know how to upload them. If anyone knows please do let me know how. Thanks
Hi lisab Difficult to give a solution without pictures but you could drill through the metal studding (if it is metal studding and not metal sheathing covering electric cables). Have a look at the welcome forum - how to upload images for help with this. Regards S
That is a very good point about the wires. Im not entirely sure if its metal sheeting or studding so probably best to be cautious as its a relatively new build and they do tend to put wires and flexy pipes in weird places ( my bf accidently drilled through a water pipe so you can imagine the carnage)
