    Hi, I had a question. I am putting timber shelves on the wall. I am using this black wood screw. Which plug should I use? The screw fits flush on the yellow one but goes through halfway through the red.

    red: 6mm
    Yellow: 5mm

    I think the screw is 40/50mm in length

    Knock the plug in as far as it will go
