Product Features

  • MADE IN AMERICA: Uses steel melted in America to assure top quality and to meet most Made in America requirements
  • PATENTED UNIVERSAL CLIP: Anchor does not spin in the hole which makes each fastening faster and more secure
  • PARTIAL THREADS: Assures proper anchor length is used to meet minimum embedment depths
  • LENGTH I. D. STAMPED ON EACH ANCHOR: Provides for a fast easy inspection of embedment depth
  • PACKAGED: Correct size and quantities of nuts and washers included
  • INSTALLATION: Hole size to be drilled in the concrete is equal to the diameter of Thunderstud zinc anchor used. To determine the minimum anchor length for your application, simply add the material thickness to the minimum embedment and add the thickness of the nut & washer.

Installation steps:

  1. Drill a hole in the concrete at least 1/2" deeper than the wedge anchor embedment using a hammer drill and the correct size carbide tipped bit.
  2. Clean out the hole of all debris.
  3. Place the nut on the end of the wedge anchor (to protect the threads of the wedge anchor during installation).
  4. Hammer the wedge anchor into the hole deep enough so that the threads are below the surface of the base material.
  5. Tighten the nut - turning approximately three or four full turns.
  6. Drill a hole in the concrete at least 1/2" deeper than the wedge anchor embedment using a hammer drill and a correctly sized carbide tipped bit. (Hole size is wedge anchor size).
  7. Clean out the hole of all debris.
  8. Place the nut on the end of the wedge anchor (to protect the threads of the wedge anchor during installation).
  9. Hammer the wedge anchor into the hole deep enough so that the threads are below the surface of the base material.
