hi
has anyone used 'no more nails' and do you think it would be strong enough for a coat hook on a plastered wall?
I tried drilling holes to fix the coat hook up with nails, but the drill does not seem to want to go through the wall, (its a brick wall) not sure if it is hitting cement icon_confused.gif . Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thanks icon_smile.gif

No nails isn't suitable for things like this....screw your coat hooks to a smart timber batten (or buy some ready fitted) and fix the batten to the wall with traditional plastic plugs and screws. You will need a hammer drill though. John icon_smile.gif

are you using a masonary drill bit and a hammer drill????.
like mentioned earlier get a piece of timber to fix on wall first or an off the peg one with the coat hooks already attached. drill 2, 6mm holes ,then insert a red rwal plug,then the screw.a couple of 4.5x50/60 screws will do it

As said it's not suitable for this kind of application, it's good for things like skirting boards, but personally I use something called sticks like sh*t, which does what it says on the tube.

thanks for the replies. The coat hooks are already fixed to a wood panel. I am sure its a masonry drill head i have tried, but will buy another head just incase it has worn out. If no success, I will try and buy the 'sticks like s*?!t' tube. Thanks icon_smile.gif

Noooo, sticks like sh*t (real product name BTW) won't do it either, you have to have a mechanical fixing, otherwise it will fall off. There are no adhesive products that will do what you want.

Buy yourself a decent 6mm masonry bit, and beg borrow or steal a hammer drill (an ordinary drill won't do) and you'll get there. John icon_smile.gif

Yes,,, "you will need screws and plugs for the wood panel coat hanger" Rach.
I only agreed with EddieM on his choice of adhesive, for sticking bits of skirting etc., but as he said, it WONT be of any use at all for your job,,, it'll fall off over time.

I used to work in a home improvement/DIY store and this was a common problem I would encounter with people not really using No More Nails for the proper purposes. In response to the topic title, No More Nails is a very good product, just not for this purpose icon_wink.gif

If your drill bit does not resemble this It's not a masonry bit.
