A stupid thing I did the other day............

Move a 2.4KW heater (76 kgs) on my own, that had come away from the wall (without removing the bricks etc)..

The original fitters had used fibre raw plugs :eek: :O

Almost lost 2 of my fingers (and 2lbs in weight, doing the job).. :D

Still you live and learn..

I had one of the heavier ones 3.4 kw fall over once when I was trying to move it. Had to call the ladys son to give me a hand to push it up again. Why do you quiry the fibre wall plugs ext, its what there supposed to be for storage heaters. You never should use plastic plugs for storage heaters.

I didn't know that wally... :(

But is obvious......

As for the reason for it falling down, I could see no reason.
