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.
