How to fix ceiling pull switch case to the ceiling?

My bathroom pull switch is too narrow. Are there different widths that you can buy? The problem lies in the distance between the ceiling fixing screws. I think we need a wide fitting device, as I have tried to fill the ceiling and it just comes away when I try to raw plug it!

Are you trying to fix a new switch into the old holes?

There are about 1000 different light switches which will all have different holes...

The answer is to make new holes, you need plasterboard fixings not rawl plugs

Old fashioned toggle bolts would work, B &Q do them

Yes different widths are available. Would suggest try using Brolly-bolts or other type of cavity fixings first to see if that helps.
