    Default Drywall Hole Repair Plug


    Drywall Hole Repair Plug - Not a patch!

    Of course the professionals know other methods to create their own patch and fix the problem on site but I've never seen one of these before and thought it would be a good link for DIY users.

    You could make that yourself out of some plasterboard, some sticky backed plastic, a washing up liquid bottle and a cotton reel. Sorry, been watching Blue Peter again.

    simple neat idea, not so sure it would be cost effective on sitework but nice diy product.

    the plasterboard patched from Gyproc have been good for this kind of repair. They have integral galv mesh, good when door handles dent walls etc.

    I was given one of those packs when I met up with a BG rep (SpeedtapePro) during the summer. Only used one, and they are good.

    ahhh.. you're missing the point. If it's good gear you have, don't go keeping it a secret from us all. It's good to see you again, you came back just in time for our first birthday tomorrow.

    Anyhoo, we kind of strayed from the topic that was originally DIY patching. So I'll just mosey along now.....
