What can I say, they are Wall Plugs and they do what they do and they are cost effective.

On deciding to purchase the Homebase own brand Red Plastic Plugs, Red 6mm I decided to suspend any prejudice that I may hold against non branded products.
I had put several hours of market research into identifying and comparing comparable products across a vast range in the hard fixings market.
On arriving back at the project I gingerly opened the packet to inspect the product.
I had previously drawn up a spread sheet and I used this to input data and give marks out of ten for different characteristics.
Colour: 8 (I have seen brighter red but they were not faded.
Material: 9 The plastic was nice to touch but not too brittle
Finish: 7 there were some bits of plastic left un trimmed from the manufacturing process, but they were not sharp
Odour:6 I have smelt nicer rawl plugs but the smell was not disgusting.
I decided to utilise my purchase. I first hung a mug hook with one of the plugs to assess their durability, usability and strength. My mug did not fall down.
I then ventured to greater weightier objects and randomly hung them around my cottage to try out different materials such as brick and rock. The book shelf held fast as did the kitchen units but unfortunately the microwave bracket did develop a wobble. That could have been the wall though.
All in all I would say that this is an excellent entry level product, however experienced rawl plug users may want to progress onto the brown 7mm version for that extra durability and semi disguised colouration.
I would recomend this product to a friend and thoroughly enjoyed using the red 6mm Homebase own brand rawl plugs!
