How to choose correct molly plugsReport
Please briefly explain why you feel this question should be reported.
I’m trying to put up a shelf (board and shelf brackets, not a floating shelf) in an interior drywall, using molly plugs.
I’ve taken out an electrical socket in the wall to measure the thickness of the wall, which is 1/2”.
I’ve also measured the holes in the shelf brackets, which are 5mm. The shelf did not come with fixings, so I’m assuming I need to buy some 5mm screws.
My question is, how do I know which molly plugs to buy? I’ll need ones to fit a 1/2” drywall, but also that will allow 5mm screws to be screwed into them (since 5mm screws are what fit the shelf brackets). Having had a search online, on product pages / pictures I can find details as to the wall thickness(es) that the molly plugs are suitable for, but not which size screws would fit into them. Any help?
Many thanks :)
