    Hi, i have a large piece of glass i'd like to fit to the wall as a kitchen splash back, i had 6 holes pre drilled and i was planning on using a mirror type screw and raw plugs.

    The holes drilled however are 10mm in diameter so standard screws will just pass right through.
    Are there any kind of specialists screws or inserts for this kind of thing? Thanks

    Have a look at screwmaster.co.uk the holes are presumably that big to allow a sleeve to be inserted before the screw.....less stress on the glass etc.
