After my geefix fail, shelves are back up with gripits. Can't say I'm overly impressed. Had to use blue ones as I'd already drilled 25mm holes. Pop in the gripit OK. Opening the wings needs a massively wide screwdriver and the notches are very weak, so very easy to break. Also have to be super accurate with placement as there is no leeway for error with m8 bolts as fixings. Hopefully the wings went out enough to hold everything up anyway.
As someone who has spent a lot of time hanging heavy and expensive things off single skin plasterboard walls, Gripits seem like a total gimmick to me. Expensive and not as good as many other alternatives. Being removable is nice I guess, but they’re fiddly and easy to break in the process.
These would have been my go to.
Have I shown the cupboard of coats where the rack fell off ?
Gripits didnt work then, old crumbly shit plaster.
Those @Bainbridge / Dov proved plasterboard plastic things look good as are the @nefarious approved toggles.
