Radiator Came off Plasterboard Wall

Postby Baggers48 » Mon Aug 23, 2010 4:56 pm

Hi, need help. My upstairs radiator came off my wall (my landlords wall actually). I had the idea of re-screwing the redidrive plugs back into the wall a couple of cm above the original holes, but the pipes on the radiator arent long enough to allow the radiator the extra height needed to go on brackets.

Would spring toggles (butterfly fixings) do the job if I put them into original holes?

"Would spring toggles (butterfly fixings) do the job if I put them into original holes?" PROBABLY BUT IT DEPENDS ON WHETHER THE PLASTERBOARD IS INTACT AROUND THE HOLES.
