(a) It takes an age to screw the bolt into the anchor to the extent that said anchor is fully compressed and......
(b) press the anchor into the wall as much as you like, it frequently refuses to actually anchor itself properly with the result that it turns around and around with the bolt, causing you to expend a lot of effort and colourful language that could best be used elsewhere.
Say goodbye to all that.
The business part of this tool consists of a metal cylinder with a notch cut into the face (see main pic) and similar cylinder of smaller size - and with a similar notch - which sits inside the first. The action of the spring loaded handles is such as to draw the inner cylinder back away from the outer one.
You have to unscrew the rawlplug bolt a short distance, making sure it's still fixed to its anchor. Then fit it into the tool so that the head of the bolt is up against the inner face of the inner cylinder and the top of the anchor is against the outer face of the outer cylinder (see image 1). Insert the plug into the hole you've drilled, squeeze the handles, and there you are (image 2). The action of the cylinders, in pulling the bolt away from the anchor, has compressed the anchor. And you have just firmly fixed your rawlplug into its location with little effort and no bad language.
I noticed these plugs had an initial outward offset, to help the "legs" buckle more easily when being set. Other similar fixings have much straighter "legs", which require more force to start setting.
Initially the handles are wide apart and require considerable force to start the setting, so some may find it difficult to get the necessary grip. I find it best to put the head of the screw into the tool, after removing any washers from the screw, finger tightening the anchor plug against the face of the tool. Then put the anchor plug into the 10mm drilled hole, holding the inner handle against the wall, while given the outer handle a good thump, with a fist or palm, to start the setting. From then on it is relatively easy of close the handles.
With right use this works very well and I am very pleased to have it.
