Hi we've a few of these around the house and I think there called screw pops?
What's the best way to deal with these,as I'm wondering if I fill over them will they just come back again?
Is it worth taking the screw out?
I have a misaligned uPCV external door with butt hinges (not sure which manufacturer, but is 3D adjustment type).
The bottom hinge is clearly out of alignment and recently a small screw fell out the bottom - my guess is that it has just worked loose over time. I have tried to push and screw...
I'll be plaster boarding my new extension next month. In another thread I posted on here, it seemed the general consensus was to batten rather than D&D. The walls are all flat and plumb and it does make it easier running conduit and pipework behind. I have since been very lucky to secure about...
Hi I'm trying to change the wheel of my Volkswagen but the lug nuts wont unscrew even with a big kick on the wrench. The car hasn't been touched for 7 years so they are rusty.
Any ideas to try and loosen the lug nuts so I can take the wheel of?
And also should I have the car up on a jack while...
I'm trying to replace an old toilet seat but I found these screws once I removed the seat. I tried everything to remove them but the screws won't budge.
I'm not sure whether there is a trick with the wing nut but the screws seem completely stuck.
Hi bit of a long shot but we've found 2 bolts from under our 3 seater recliner sofa had a good look under there with a torch and I can't find any previous holes :mad: it's driving me nuts plus there pretty big screws so must be important.
Anyone had this happen? Or know where they've come from?
I'd like to hang a gas central heating vertical radiator on a single timber stud behind a thin plasterboard wall. The stud is 38mm wide (actual size) and (presumably, difficult to measure) around 75mm deep. The radiator would weigh around 35kg in total, spread across a number of screws which can...
Hi all, I'm trying to find the right screw to attach my speaker to a speaker stand.
I have the details (see image) but at the nearby hardware store they are pretty useless.
First they gave me one screw (M5 I believe) which is too small. Then another one (M6 I believe) which is slightly too big...
I've got an old cast iron panel radiator that I've recently had stripped and repainted.
On piping up it has a weeping leak from the bleed screw at the top.
Taking the screw out and cleaning up I could see the screw thread has a notch in it and the hole that it screws into also has notches in...
I was cleaning the bath tub and I had unscrew a cap from the side of bath tub (where the hole is located) below:
[![Whole bath tub]]
The cap consists of 2 parts:part A & B as below
[![part A & B for cap]]
When I removed part B, the part A is connected by a screw, which comes from...
I want to hang a mirror on a wall. The mirror is 1800x600 / 6'x2' landscape, so short and wide, but quite heavy 24 kg/53 lbs. The wall is plasterboard on brick.
I'm worried about putting that weight on plasterboard, so I was planning on drilling straight through into the brick. The problem is...
I've got concrete screws that I want to fix a metal frame to an old breeze block wall.
The point of the concrete screws is they just need a pilot hole and DON'T need a wall plug.
However because the breeze block is quite soft it works much better with wall plugs. Can you use wall plugs with...
Im doing a bit of renovation and for the first time I have to build few wall including one partywall and a fully enclosed bathroom.
My idea is to use 15mm plasterboard or maybe 2x15mm to make it stronger but question is what stud size need to use and if there is any basic concept to use in...
I am going to be starting building a half stud wall this weekend. I have a suspended timber floor with a solid oak flooring on top. I have been given great advice on what materials and hardware to use. I will be fixing the sole plate to the floor with 12mm coach screws, and was wondering what...
Trying to screw in a book wall unit to wall however wall crumbles over an inch before actually hitting brick. I remember having to pay a professional to hang TV on the same wall and he had to call another person to help him a few years back.
I know have a massive whole, which I'm happy to...
Easydrive seem to be a bit shy of providing hole spec..
The 6x100 have 6mm thread diameter, slightly unsurprisingly (with 4.8mm shank). They're going in to a concrete blockwork wall.
Is there a general rule for hole sizes?
Selco Paris Matt stuff, so 15mm MDF.
Presumably I clamp panels and screw from inside carcass outwards into end clad panels, but no screws provided. No recommended clad fixing hole positions indicated on inside of carcass.
What edge distances are recommended? Only a 16mm void so trying to lose...
