I've moved into a timber frame house. I have read a bit about plasterboard and using the right plugs and fixings but am still unsure. The curtains are blackout so have a bit of weight to them. The curtain mounts are as shown in the image. One hole to hang on a screw and another hole to secure the mount with a second screw.
The place I want to put the mount is not over a stud (even though my stud finder said it was) so I need fixings. I plan to use self-drill fixings like below for the top hole. https://www.fischer.co.uk/en-gb/products/cavity-fixings/board-fixing/plasterboard-fixing-metal-gkm
And these for the lower hole https://www.screwfix.com/p/fischer-plasterboard-plugs-hdf-10-x-28mm-100-pack/58219
The reason I'm using different ones is that the holes are fairly close together and I don't want risk them touching and weakening the wall.
Is this a good method?
Finally, I've tried it on one and had to stop as I couldn't drill in the lower screw, the bracket gets in the way. Is there a good method/tool to screw in parts when a drill/screwdriver can't line up straight?
