About this deal

But the story behind this seemingly simple product – and the future ahead of it –demonstrates great innovation, problem-solving and strength, in both the product and the people behind it. Also tape measure will be marked with symbol to show where studs are to confirm as should be set spacing. Once the fixing has been installed you simply rotate the metal wings to hold it behind the plasterboard. New Quick-Change™ button provides easy removal of jaws for accessory installation or conversion to spreading. The GripIt was originally invented by 74 year old Grandfather Stan Daykin and his Grandson Jordan Daykin at just the age of 13 when attempting to fit blinds in a house.

We’re happy to offer an exchange or refund on undamaged items within 30 days with a valid receipt or despatch confirmation note. When GripIt® was launched on the market in 2012 it provided an instantly popular and winning solution to an enduring problem. The Vaunt heavy-duty 12" quick grip clamp allows you to apply fast, even pressure precisely with one hand, without marking your workpiece. Now, with a UK patent in place and a US patent pending, he was ready and poised to really maximise the opportunity and explained exactly what he wanted from an investor and why.Overall, the product is a good option for those looking for a secure and easy-to-use plasterboard fitting. To use the fixing effectively, drill the hole in the plasterboard to the desired size, tap in a GripIt plasterboard fixing with a hammer, making sure the anti-rotation blades are horizontal, turn a screw in it a few times then use the gauge provided to secure it. Due to its slim gripping wings it is able to open easily within the void to produce an effective secure fixing with excellent load bearing capability excelling any cavity wall fixing currently available.

This type of installation causes immense stress on the plasterboard and tends to result in the plasterboard failing. Moved into a new build beginning of the year and put up curtain poles above 2 doors with bit of wood attached to plasterboard wall using 4 metal plasterboard fixings. These blue fixings need a 25mm hole drilled in the plasterboard and will take a huge 180kg maximum load.

Once happy that the fixing is in the correct place, turn the two small screws on the outer edge of the fixing clockwise until they resist. I bought one of these after putting up shelves and drilling thru my (stupidly placed) telephone line. Using their uniquely patented designed slim gripping wings, Gripit Fixings fold out in the gap behind the plasterboard to create one of the most effective and secure fixings on the market today.

Some say that the pack contains too many sizes, and that there are not enough of the small ones, which are the more useful size. The red Grip It fixings require a 16mm hole within the plasterboard and can take a maximum load of 120kg. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. Now use the gauge supplied to check that the fixing is either 3mm or 6mm below the surface (6mm for rendered plasterboard, 3mm for not). The patent for GripIt was granted in November 2012 and Jordan has since secured deals with a number of national chains as well as several independent builders, plumbing and timber merchants.Was going to use these but how do you get over the fact the fixings may be slightly wider than the actual fitting you are putting up?
