Testing Spring Toggles, GripIt Fixings & GeeFix

Testing GeeFix next to Gripit fixing and Spring Toggles proving GeeFix’s unrivaled strength is stronger than market leaders making GeeFix the ultimate cavity fixing.

We had some fun demonstrating how GeeFix stacks up against two wall anchor market leaders: Spring Toggle and GripIt. As you can see, GeeFix came out on top, supporting the weight of our intrepid engineer, while the two other fixings pulled away from the drywall – ultimately failing. Since filming this video, independent strength tests have demonstrated GeeFix’s unrivalled strength in the hollow wall anchor market – outperforming the leading brands in shear, tensile and cantilever load bearing capabilities.   The tests were carried out on ⅝ inch drywall. Industry safety standards recommend ¼ of the ultimate load. The below maximum load-testing figures are provided as guides only and cannot be guaranteed. The age, condition and capacity of base materials must be considered:

 

Load Test Maximum weight (lbs)
Shear 595
Tensile 156
Cantilever @ 3 inches 535
Cantilever @ 6 inches 423
Cantilever @ 12 inches 224

GeeFix is a versatile fixing that outperforms all other market leaders. It can be used on a wide variety of materials including all type of plasterboard, hardboard, plywood, sheet metal, chip board, mdf, lath and plaster.
