Bit of problem. I live in a flat with plasterboard. The flat is new build and came fitted with blinds in the bedroom windows and now my son's blinds are falling. One screw has fallen out. I'm not sure if the hole is enlarged now or whether I will be able to just refit it. (i'm assuming not as that is the reason the screw came out.)
Not sure best way to repair and blind is currently hanging only on one side from the other screw.
Best to use a INTERSET, (RAWLPLUG), which is useful in larger holes.
This type of fixing opens like an umbrella as you tighten the screw.
Do not over tighten otherwise the epanding part of the fixing can cause damage to the plasterboard.
These fixings are available & B&Q, screwfix etc.
