Screw fixing to masonry walls

Using a 4mm masonry bit, drill a 25mm deep pilot hole through centre of your fixing cross(es) (see Section 14).

Next, enlarge these with a 6.5mm masonry drill. If you are unlucky and drill into a soft mortar joint, use a 5.5mm masonry bit or relocate your hole.

Gently hammer a green masonry plug into each hole. Next, insert the washer head screw(s) through the slot(s) in the hanger strip(s) and loosely tighten using a 2 Phillips driver.

Check the alignment with a spirit level and tighten the screws.

SAFETY: Do not drill in line with electric or plumbing outlets!
