Nylon Nail-It Anchor Now Available Online

Nylon Nail-It Anchors

You can install Nylon Nail-It Anchors into concrete, brick or block base material. The nail creates the expansion of the nylon nail-it anchor into concrete, brick or block.

These anchors are pre-assembled and ready to use, ensuring quick and accurate installation. This is a light duty fastener that is tamper and corrosion resistant.

Before installing Nylon Nail-it Anchors, consider certain technical specifications to ensure a safe and proper installation. These anchors are available in both 3/16” and 1/4” diameters. Three head styles are available – round, flat and mushroom – allowing the nylon-nail to meet a variety of fastening needs. The hole diameter is equal to the anchor diameter, and they only require a hammer for installation.


To determine the required anchor length, simply add the thickness of the material to be fastened to the minimum embedment.


The forces on these anchors are transferred to the base material in which it is installed. If you install the anchors close together, it can cause an interaction of the forces, thus reducing the holding power of the anchor.

As a rule of thumb, the expansion anchor industry has established a minimum standard of ten (10) anchor diameters for spacing between anchors and five (5) anchor diameters from an unsupported edge. When vibration or sudden impacts are part of the load conditions, you should increase the spacing between anchors.
