Step 1

Decide where you want to fit your wall plug. A cross is the easiest way to mark the central point you will be drilling into.

Step 2

Choose the correct size of plugs and drill bits for your screws. The yellow plugs shown in this example take 4mm gauge screws, the red ones take 5mm and the brown ones take 5.5mm - although wall plugs do come in lots of colours. 

Step 3

If you don't have much experience using a drill, you might find it easiest to get a neat, accurate result if you start the drilling the hole without the hammer action turned on.

Step 4

Use your drill on a hammer setting to drill the hole. K

Step 5

The wall plug should be a tight fit, but you only need finger pressure to put it in. Lightly tap the plug with a hammer to level it with the wall, if you need to. This is now ready for you to securely screw into.
