Rawl Plugs

Drawing of a red Rawl plugWhen you come to either paint or wallpaper your walls and you have some old rawl plugs in the wall, don’t fill over them!

There are two options for this problem.

  1. Put a screw into the rawl plug (only a few threads) then use either a claw hammer or pliers to pull out the rawl plug.
  2. If the rawl plugs are a very tight fit there is a risk of pulling some of the wall off with the plug, you could just cut the tops off and then fill the hole leaving the plug in the wall but not filling over the end thus not leaving a big lump in the wall or under your paper. Use a knife or scrapper to take off the top.
