Named “the innovation of the future” by the jury of the Alfred Nobel “SKAPA” award, the Duck Foot is a patented self-drilling drywall fixing available exclusively in the UK from Hexstone.
Described as being quick and easy to install, the Duck Foot provides a reliable and secure fixing, and is able to handle a substantial amount of weight from a single fixing – it can reportedly hold up to 50kg of shear load weight from one anchor.
The self-drilling concept makes it an easy option for anyone looking to affix items to hollow stud plasterboard walls (single or double layer); it’s as simple as: ‘drill, push, attach – done!’ Because it’s so easy and quick to fit, it saves on time, and therefore, ultimately cost, too.
The innovative shape and style only makes a 12mm hole in the wall, helping to protect the plasterboard, and makes any hole filling thereafter a quicker and easier job. The supplied M5 x 70 screw permits an object thickness up to 22mm, and installation is carried out using a power drill and a PH2 standard bit.
Duck Foot is available in packs of 8 and 25, which are tamper-proof, waterproof, and re-sealable.
