    Hi Paul and welcome,

    Never seen them before but looking interesting to me. I cannot tell you really if they're good or not. My experience with spring toggles or hollow wall anchor are good. I cannot complain about those cavity fixings. I was just thinking if you really had so much space to fit the big plastic inside the cavity ? Sometimes you won't have that much space but It's worth trying the geefix if you ask me. I definitely will give it a go thanks for sharring.

    I would say no from me plasterboard will only hold so much all your doing is spreading the load out to a bigger surface area and in theory this is great, but the base material needs to be able to take the load

    Anything over 1m x 60cm is a no go for plasterboard unless your fixing directly to timbers behind

    Thanks for your thoughts. Will post how I get on. Ideally I would have liked timber instead of plasterboard but I think the Geefix will be my best option

    Hi, I recently used these Gee fixings and would recommend them. They are holding very securely a towel radiator 1100mm X 600mm. Very neat and easy to use. However I would suggest only using them as a last resort as a stud is the best choice
