Drop-in anchors are used in concrete, brick or stone. They are used for securing light to medium weight equipment such as pipe work, ducts and machinery to ceilings and walls using bolts or threaded rods. Drop in anchors are a flush, female anchor that incorporates an internal plug that remains in place even when used in overhead applications. The anchor expands when the plug is driven to the proper depth.
- Using a masonry bit with the same diameter as the anchor, drill hole slightly depper then the anchor length.
- Clean hole of debris using compressed air or a blow out bulb.
- Insert the drop in anchor and hammer until it is flush with the top of the surface.
- Select the correct setting tool*(the outside diameter of the tool must be the same as the anchors diameter). Expand the anchor by hitting the setting tool until the shoulder is flush with the anchor.
