zip fix plasterboard fixings are one of the best fixings available for fixing to plasterboard or drywall, they are inexpensive, easy to use and can hold a decent amount of weight. Originally these were known as Snap toggles, but the Zip fix fixings are identical. These are my number one choice for fixing to plasterboard, if I can’t locate a suitable stud to fix to.
