DON'T BODGE IT - FIX IT, WHEN YOU DIY THIS EASTER!

LONDON, ENGLAND--(CCNMatthews - Mar. 14, 2005) - Even the most capable
DIYers will admit that sometimes there are jobs that we are uncertain
about. This is perhaps especially true when it comes to fixings - mainly
because the fixing disappears into the wall, and it's a case of out of
sight, out of mind.

Are you going to be putting up shelving this Easter? Or curtain poles?
Or hanging a picture? No doubt you've decided on the colour and style of
shelf or curtain rail that you like. But have you thought about the
fixing? Do you know what your wall's made of? Concrete? Hollow block?
Brick? Plasterboard? So what kind of fixings do you need?

The last thing you want is for your nice straight shelving units or your
treasured family portrait to come crashing down as soon as you put
weight on the fixing.

fischer, who are the biggest name in nylon fixings for DIY jobs, have a
product which will solve all your fixing problems this Easter. The UX
Plug ('U' stands for Universal) can be used for all these common DIY
fixing jobs. What's more, it will work equally well in any type of
material, so you don't need to know what the wall is made of. The UX is
made from high quality nylon, so you can be confident it will provide a
longterm secure fixing.

The UX Plug is also really easy to use. That's because its design gives
a feedback to the user, so you can tell when it's fully home - and when
it reaches that point, a collar prevents the plug from slipping too deep
into the hole. Virtually nothing can go wrong!

The range of applications is huge. As well as fixing shelving, curtain
rails and pictures, it can be used to fix skirting boards, electric
switches, lamps, mirrors or sanitary installations - to name just a few
possible jobs you might be tackling this Easter!

The UX plug is available in a range of sizes, of which the most popular
are 6, 8 and 10mm diameter. You don't even have to buy special screws,
as the UX can be used with either wood screws or chipboard screws of
various different sizes. The UX is available from all 450 branches of
Jewsons nationwide, as well as other leading builders merchant chains
and hardware independents. Pricing for the 6mm version is around GBP2.50
for a pack of 20 plugs or GBP6.95 for a box of 100.
