+1 for everything Goldenboy says above.
Yes this is the preferred option..thanks a lot for the advice
Great forum here cheers guys
So on this pain of a bracket, I've got one hole fixed into the brick correctly but can i use a standard brown plug on the other two holes( which will obviously be plaster only) just to give it additional support??
Have you tried my wooden spike method?
One the one location yes it worked great...but the other one the brick crumbled away....cant see what the problem is but i think pinning either side as suggested is a good plan.
I normally insert the spikes with a dab of polyurethane glue on it for it to expand and take up any gaps and solidify everything, but I assumed you didn't have any to hand. As long as the ends of your units are well supported, screw the middle unit tight to the others and as long as you don't fit a baby elephant in there, you'll be fine.
If you need to fix just into the plasterboard on the second hole with the first hole properly secured to the brick/block (assuming the adjacent unit is securely fixed) then use a metal spiral fixing into the plasterboard rather than a plug.
One of these.
What about using GripIts? I’ve found these a good backup for this type of thing.
I use a 6.5mm bit brown plug tap plug in with screw as said above
Thanks to everyone for their comments. All really useful and job done...cheers
