  Wall plug types        
 

It is crucial you use the correct plug AND screw size AND drill size. Your packet of wall plugs should tell you all this.

     
 

Use a good quality branded plug supplier with a range of plugs for different uses. That way you can be confident that the plugs will do the job you want reliably. I use Plasplugs range of plugs.

Pictured below from the
Plasplugs website are the main types I use. These are available from most good DIY shops. Checkout their website for more info. and more to choose from for different wall types.
