Need to fit an iron holder onto back of a hollow door.
I know it's not the best but have used "Sticks like s**T" which hold it quite easily.
However, for peace of mind I'd like to fit a couple of screws to the holder so looking for any recommendations for fixings?

In the dim and distant past we found the best type of hollow door fixings were ones like this as the plastic ones didn't always work properly -
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Basic-24596-Hollow-Fixing-M4X20Mm/dp/B005346TL2/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1515511657&sr=8-9&keywords=hollow+door+fixings (sorry about length of link :oops: )
The fixing stays in place even when screw removed.
Hope this helps,
skelph

The metal fixings above are available at a lower price on ebay e.g. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/METAL-PLASTERBOARD-CAVITY-WALL-ANCHORS-ALL-SIZES-SCREW-SLEEVE-WASHER/201011401862?hash=item2ecd369486:m:mAmRplGY58HaU35djt5GMRA

I would highly recommend the use of a setting tool when installing the metal plaster board/hollow door fasteners.
