Universal plugs can be used universally. This means that the plugs are suitable for solid and hollow walls. Do you always want to have the right plugs for the right job? Then make sure you have universal plugs in stock. These widely applicable plugs are suitable for almost every application in your household.
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.

||4.0 - 5.0 mm
|8 x 40 mm

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.
