Problems anchoring to hollow core precast plank or brick with weep holes?

The HollowSet Drop-In is specifically designed and engineered for anchoring in hollow base materials such as hollow concrete block, brick with weep holes and precast hollow core plank. It can also be used in solid base materials, and is appropriate for overhead applications. Great for anchoring in wall thickness as little as 1 inch. Sleeve is made from zamac alloy for better corrosion resistance, cone is available in carbon or stainless steel.

There are four easy steps for installation.

Step 1- Drill the appropriate hole size using a carbide bit.

Step 2- Attach the anchor to the setting tool and tap into predrilled hole. Turn the tool clockwise to pre-expand the anchor. Unscrew the setting tool and your anchor is set.

Step 3- Anchor is set.

Step 4- Put fixture in place and bolt in.




Save Installation Time- New Overhead Anchor

The new SNAKE(TM)+ overhead anchor from Powers Fasteners, Inc. speeds installation of threaded rods…and is one of the industry’s first mechanical anchors to meet the new more stringent International Building Code (IBC) for strength design (Cracked Concrete).

The patented proprietary anchor eliminates the time-consuming steps of banging in a drop-in and then using a special tool to set the expansion mechanism. It is simply set into a drilled hole and then tightened with a ½”  impact wrench until flush with the ceiling and ready for the insertion of threaded rod. There is no need to swing a heavy hammer overhead while on a ladder or lift.
