With the ability to fix directly to the plasterboard without additional reinforcement work, you can fix anything from radiators, kitchen cabinets, boilers, bathroom furniture, TV brackets, lighting and more, with peace of mind that when using a GripIt®, it’s there to stay.

As a result, you can have your installation complete with a drill, tap and turn.

Unique 3-way Gripping System

3 way gripping system step 1

Step 1

The universal collar automatically adjusts to the thickness of the plasterboard and distributes load weight across a much wider area of the plasterboard than conventional fixings or plugs.

When tapped into place, anti-rotational wings help to eliminate movement and increase lateral strength.

3 way gripping system step 2

Step 2

Unique backing wings expand inside the cavity space to provide a secure anchor on the back of the plasterboard surface.

3-way gripping system step 3

Step 3

Fixing your item to the GripIt induces a vice-like grip onto all three surfaces of the plasterboard, providing the ultimate grip for heavier loads.
