    Hi

    Trying to hang 48 kg rad to brick wall. 3 brackets appear ok, one is going into either mortar or a very poor block. Tried moving the bracket but still the same problem.

    Any ideas?

    Also a bit concerned with the screws and plugs supplied. Are wall anchors ever used.

    All good advice gratefully accepted.

  2. Longer screws - 3 or 4” x 12 usually ok for me

    there's also the possibility of giving a bit of support by using rad feet or legs - these items are sold seperately, by screwfix for instance, for all types of rads.
    feet extenders are also available.
