Hanging cabinets on plaster


Having trouble hanging cabinets onto a open concrete block wall that has plaster on it. I am trying to put a 2X4 board up to screw the cabinets up onto but can not find a screw that will bite into the block.

Any suggestions??

You should be hanging them on what's called a french cleat, (google it)
Tap Cons is what you should be using.

Tap cons didn't work, once the hit the open part of the block they would not bite. I figured something out. Ended up using lag shields and bolting it up.
