Buildex Super Wall-Mates®

The Wall-Mate® with the greatest holding power, the Super Wall-Mate® features a wing toggle that anchors itself behind the plasterboard, increasing the pullout strength to a recommended 20kgs.
Ideal for holding shelving, mirrors, curtainrods and coat racks. Recommended for ceiling applications such as lighting fixtures and hanging plants.

How to Use
1. Place on the end of a Phillips head screwdriver or cordless drill. Lightly piece the plasterboard and using firm pressure, screw into the plasterboard until head is tight against the facepaper.
2. Place the item to be fixed into place and insert the screw.
3. Turning the screw will engage the wing toggle.
4. Continue turning the screw until it is tight, this will ensure the toggle is firmly anchored behind the plasterboard.

Warning: Wall-Mate® anchors are only as strong as the plasterboard in which they are anchored to.

The plasterboard will fail first, not the Wall-Mate®. Due to possible differences in applications and interpretation of results, purchasers must make their own evaluation of the product to determine the suitability of Wall-Mates for their intended use.
