Universal Nylon Plugs

Are you looking for versatile plugs? With the universal nylon plugs from Wovar, you always have the right plugs at hand. Whether it concerns solid walls or ceilings made of stone or concrete. Or is it a hollow plaster wall? Wovar's universal plugs are suitable for almost every application. Popular sizes are 6 x 30 mm, 8 x 40 mm, and 10 x 50 mm universal plugs.

The reason that the universal nylon plugs from Wovar can be used universally is that they change into a kind of plug thanks to the four spreading zone. As a result, the plug pulls the screw firmly towards itself when screwed in and clamps it, as it were, against the wall or ceiling.

Which Screws Belong to the Universal Nylon Plugs?

For indoor use, we always recommend combining our universal plugs with our galvanized chipboard screws with Torx drive. These screws are not only very strong but also easy to disassemble thanks to the Torx impression. Do you want to mount something outside with a plug? Then choose our coated screws. These are just as strong as our galvanized chipboard screws but are protected against rust thanks to the strong AR coating.

Universal nylon plugs are available in many sizes. This varies from 5 x 25 mm to 14 x 70 mm. With every plug size, you need a different screw size. The thickness of the screw is especially important for the plug to function properly. The length also depends on the thickness of the material to be attached. Below we have made a handy table to see which screw size belongs to which plug size. We have also included a rough estimate of the pulling force.

How do I Install a Universal Plug?

Installing a universal plug is quite easy. This works almost the same as other plugs. You drill a hole in the wall with the same drill size as the plug. Make sure that the drilling depth is the same as in the diagram above. Then push the universal plug into the hole and screw the screw into the plug. The plug turns into a kind of prop so that your screw is attached very firmly.
