LENGTH IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM
A Drop-In anchor consists of a zinc plated steel tubular expansion shield and a
solid, cone-shaped expander plug. The
expander plug is case hardened and
tempered to prevent galling and binding
during expansion. The shield has four
equally spaced slots for a portion of its
length, the bottom part may be knurled.
The shield also has a smooth, flangeless top that allows either flush or countersunk installation. the bottom lip of the
shield is tapered to allow maximum
depth and holding power.
Values shown are average ultimate values and are offered only as a guide and are not guaranteed. A safety factor of
4:1 or 25% is generally accepted as a safe working load. Reference should be made in applicable codes for specific
working ratio. Minimum embedment for satisfactory anchor performance is 4-1/2 bolt diameters. Deeper embedments
will yield higher tension|
The cavity of the Leadwood screw
anchor tapers and is designed to facilitate proper expansion in masonry. The
anchor is split from the bottom up for
most of its length and has longitudinal
ribs for a portion of its length. The top
end of the anchor tapers outward from
the anchor diameter into a tubular thin
section cone. The tapered diameter at
the outer end of the anchor, in combination with the longitudinal split, facilitates
ease of initial expansion and prevents
the anchor from turning in the masonry.
As the screw progresses deeper into the
anchor, the longitudinal ribs bite into the
masonry, preventing the anchor from
twisting and allowing the screw to form
its own threads.
Approvals: Meets G.S.A. Specification F-S-325, Group IV, Type 1.
Applications: Light duty into concrete, block and brick.
Installation: (1) Drill hole into the base material (see chart below for reco|
The Single expansion anchor consists of
a nut, a cone and a tubular shield preassembled as a single unit. The two
piece tubular shield is bound together
with one spring band. It contains a
wedge shaped nut at one end. Integral
lugs on the nut and cone keep the
wedges from turning in the tubular
shield during expansion. The anchor are
of precision die-cast zinc alloy commonly known as Zamak 5. the expansion
action at one end of the anchor distributes the anchored load throughout the
length of the anchor. This expansion
anchor is recommended for shear loads
or where the bolt is subjected to side
pressure or vibration. Once fastened,
the object may be unbolted, removed,
Approvals: Meets Zamak 5 Zinc Alloy: A.S.T.M. Specification 24 (AC41A) and S.A.E. 925.
Applications: Medium duty in concrete, block and brick.

LAG SHIELD ANCHOR
This two-part expansion shield is preassembled into a self-contained single
unit. The shell-like unit has tapered internal threads for a portion of its length.
The outside of the anchor has a series
of circumferential ribs starting at the bottom and running for a major portion of
its length. The back end of the anchor
has two equally spaced ribs that protrude beyond its diameter and run for a
portion of its length. Precision internal
threads permit easy turning of the lag
screw without lubrication. Once fastened, an object may be easily unbolted
and removed. All parts of the completed
unit are made of zinc alloy commonly
known as Zamak 5, a rust-proof material. The anchor comes in two lengths,
short or long. The short lag shield is for
anchoring in high grade concrete or
where thickness of base material prohibits the use of a longer length shield.
The long Lag shield is for use in lower
grade base ma|
The TapCon brand concrete screw cuts
threads in a predrilled hole in concrete,
brick or block. The screw has alternating
raised and lowered threads with diamond cut notches which provide exceptional holding power and stability. The
TapCon brand concrete screw is available in both 3/16" or 1/4" diameters with
either a flat phillips #3 countersunk or a
5/16" hex washer head. All screws are
plated using the Stalgard coating which
provides extended life and additional
lubricity for ease of installation. TapCon
screws are also available in 410 stainless steel finished with a silver Stalgard.
The stainless steel screws have shown
no red rust in salt spray test performed
at a certified A2LA laboratory per ASTM
Applications: Light to medium duty in concrete, brick and block.

METAL HIT ANCHOR
The Metal Hit Anchor is a precision diecast, light-duty concrete anchor combining unusual toughness and remarkable
strength. The Metal Hit anchor consists
of a cylindrical zinc alloy body and a
zinc plated steel pin expander. The
shank, from the bottom up, is split a
major portion of its length. The anchor
body has a bore which runs through the
head thickness and into the shank for a
depth just beyond the point where the
slot terminates in the body. The steel pin
expander is made of high carbon steel,
properly heat treated, and heavily zinc
plated for maximum corrosion resistance.
Approvals: Meets G.S.A. specifications FF-S-325, Group V, Type 2, Class 3.
Applications: Light to medium duty in concrete block and brick.
Installation: (1) Drill hole in base material equal to diameter of anchor being used. Hole depth should
be at least 1/4" deeper than the anchor embedment. (2) Clean out|
The strike anchor is an impact-expansion type concrete anchor. The body of
the anchor is carbon steel with an interior hole extending the length of the
anchor. The hardened drive pin comes
inserted in the interior hole of the
anchor. The anchor is threaded on the
top end where the drive pin is inserted.
The other end of the anchor has four
equally spaced slots for a portion of its
length, with ribs extending the circumference of the anchor for a portion of its
length. The entire anchor is yellow dicromate over zinc plating.
Approvals: Meets I.C.B.O. standards report #4194, Meets City of Los Angeles Approval #25109, Meets
or exceeds G.S.A. Standards G.S.A. FF-S-325, Group V, Type 2 Class 2, Meets load factors in compliance with A.N.S.I. A58-1, Meets plating standard in compliance with A.S.T.M. E488488.

The patented TOGGLER brand toggle
bolt operates like no other. Each anchor
has a one-piece steel anchoring channel
pivoted on durable installation legs. The
sliding cap ratchets down the legs to
securely "capture" the wall between the
channel and the cap. The legs snap off
easily, flush with the wall. The Toggler
bolt is also available with a stainless
Applications: light to medium duty in hollow block, hollow brick, wall board, paneling, plaster, fiberglass
and composite panels.
Installation: (1) Drill appropriate sized hole. Hold metal channel flat alongside plastic straps and slide
channel through hole. (2) With one hand, pull ring so metal channel rests flush behind wall as you slide
plastic cap along straps with other hand until flange of cap is flush with wall. (3) Place thumb between
plastic straps, Push side to side snapping off straps flush with wall. (4) Insert b|
The plastic Toggler consists of four legs
and a body. The four legs are joined by
hinges to form a diamond shape which
attaches to the side of the body. The
body has a hole through the center and
webs on the sides to resist spinning during installation. The legs collapse to
form a tonjue, which allow them to be
inserted in to the hole. As the screw
passes through the body, it draws in
and expands the legs for double holing
power. The key-activated positive locking action allows the anchor to become
a rigid, weight-distributing truss.
Anchors can be used in any material
(masonite, plywood, paneling, concrete,
drywall, etc.) of any thickness above the
minimum wall grip range. Anchors will
perform as wedge or solid wall anchors
in materials with thicknesses above wall
grip range, without modification.
Applications: Light to medium duty in concrete, brick,block, drywall, masonite, plywo|
