    Hi,
    I have the below wine rack to attach to an exposed brick wall. It is 1m in length with the tubing being approx 10mm thick. It has 4 x 5mm fixing holes pre drilled into it.

    It came with plugs and screws for fixing, but they just seem too small for the weight that this is likely to hold [7 bottles per rack plus the weight of the rack itself [approx 5kg].

    What would you recommend is the best fixing for the job?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Often the case, that supplied screws and plugs are cheap/inadequate.

    I would use red plugs and #8 screws.

    I'll second that normal red plugs will hold this no problem. There is hardly any cantilever force, even fully loaded. Get some black screws to blend in a bit better than in the pics...
