Grip It Giveaway

Grip It Giveaway

I’ve posted before about the problems we have had fixing things to the walls of our various military homes (some made of concrete, some made of cardboard) and whilst wall fixings themselves are not a terribly sexy subject, I am a sucker for good design, which is why I leapt at the chance of trying out a rather beautifully constructed new gadget.

You may well have seen Grip It fixings on Dragons Den a few weeks ago when Jordan Dakin the 18 year-old entrepreneur who invented them in his grandfather’s shed, won the backing of Deborah Meaden.

Grip It are an innovative new kind of universal fixing with metal wings that unfold inside the wall to securely support heavy objects. Safely supporting everything from curtain rails to kitchen cabinets. As the majority of new homes are constructed with plasterboard walls, Jordan’s invention is an eloquent solution to an ever-growing problem.  

We tried them out and once Jim got past his resrervations about drilling a larger hole than he was used to (for rawl plugs) he thought that they offered a great solution for heavier objects.

Grip It have kindly offered readers of this blog a chance to win a starter kit with a range of different size fixings. To enter all you need to do is enter via the Rafflecopter below.

Hi Claire, these look fab but we have the opposite problem, concrete. Our walls and annoyingly just the places where we want to hang heavy curtains are so solid putting up a rail inevitably includes the cost of one, sometimes two drill bits. Did you ever solve that problem? I’d love to find a solution

They may not be sexy but if they work then thank you for sharing as I don’t watch Dragon’s Den. We always struggle with our walls!

I needed something like that in our home before last- we actually made a huge hole in the plasterboard wall hanging a bathroom cabinet…
