GRIPIT fixes heavy items to plasterboard

Many fixings on the market rely on modifying or strengthening walls, while others need timber studs or brickwork anchor points, which limits where they can be positioned. Gripit Fixings can be fitted straight into plasterboard (including dot & dab, double thickness and insulated board) with no need for specialist tools or compromises, saving you time, effort, materials and wastage. Once in place, the Gripit’s universal collar automatically adjusts to the thickness of the plasterboard and its unique backing wings unfold inside the cavity space to create a vice-like grip and ensure a secure anchor.
