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.
