The revolutionary fixings
for dry linings, cavity walls, ceilings
and thermal insulated plasterboard!

What is a ‘Grip It’?

Grip It is a revolutionary new design of universal fixing. It has been designed for use with all types of plasterboard installation.

Using their uniquely designed slim gripping wings, Grip It Fixings fold out in the gap behind the board and produce the most effective and secure fixing currently available.

GRIP IT

Easy to install

The unique design makes the Grip It one of the strongest plasterboard fixings available today.

Just follow our five easy steps:

Step One

GRIP IT

Mark out the centreline positions where the recommended size of Grip It Fixings is to be positioned and then drill the required number of holes in the plasterboard - we recommend that you use a flat drill bit.

Step Two

GRIP IT

Position the Grip It fixing in the hole with the anti-rotation blades in a horizontal position.

Gently tap the fixing in to the hole with a light hammer until the fixing is near the plasterboard surface, then insert a screw and turn three of four times in to the fixing.

Step Three

GRIP IT

Continue to gently tap the screw head until the top of the Grip It fixing is below the plasterboard surface. If the plasterboard has been rendered with plaster, the fixing must be 6mm below the plastered surface. This can be checked using the special 6mm gauge provided.

If the plasterboard has not been rendered, the fixing must be 3mm below the plasterboard surface. This can also be checked using the 3mm gauge.

Step Four

GRIP IT

With a small screwdriver, rotate both locking arm shafts in a CLOCKWISE direction for approximately 125 degrees until a firm resistance is detected and which also indicates that the fixings’ arms are fully extended.

Step Five

GRIP IT

Grip It fixings are designed to accept screws of various lengths provided that the tip of the screw, when fully inserted, does not make contact with a solid brick or block wall.

To determine the maximum length of screws, measure the thickness of the item to be secured to the wall and then add between 15 to 20mm for plasterboard and clearances.
