The Concrete Screw Anchor is the perfect solution for a wide variety of projects that require secure and fastening of various materials. It has self-threading action that provides maximum holding power. It can be used to anchor anything from electrical junction boxes, plywood, and wooden beams to exterior insulation and metal flashing. These fasteners are available in flat head and hex head styles.

To choose a suitable Concrete Screw Anchor, first determine the load to be supported. The load is the pressure exerted on the concrete when something is fastened to it. The right anchor must be able to support this weight and must be able to resist pressures caused by shear and tension. It should also have the right size to meet the load capacity. A 3/16" or 1/4" diameter fastener will work for fastening light-weight objects, while a 3/8" or 1/2" diameter fastener will be suitable for medium-to-heavy items.

Before installing a Concrete Screw Anchor, make sure to follow the manufacturer's installation instructions. It is best to space anchors 10 times apart. Make sure to drill holes to the required depth, plus an extra 1/2 inch. Use a carbide drill bit to ensure proper size and tolerances. Once the holes are properly drilled, the concrete screw can be threaded.

Concrete Screw Anchors are great for holding pipes and other items to concrete. Whether you need to fasten a shower door, shelf bracket, or a rake and shovel, these anchors will ensure that your projects stay securely in place. Just make sure to make a pilot hole at least as deep as the screw itself and the thickness of the material that you are fastening.

When installing a Concrete Screw Anchor, make sure to measure the hole. If the anchor is too large, it can break the hole. If you don't, you can simply use a hammer to drive it in. Just remember to never over-tighten the nut, or you could end up breaking the concrete around the hole.

The Concrete Screw Anchor is made of zinc plated steel and is available in six diameters, with a hex nut and round head styles. This anchor is most often used for light to medium-duty applications in concrete block. This fastener is also corrosion-resistant and is nearly impossible to remove once installed.
