A corrosion resistant Zamac alloy is used to form the anchor body with either a mushroom or flat head. The anchor can be used for light duty, tamperproof applications.
The anchor is not recommened for overhead, life-safety or sustained tensile loading applications unless special considerations are given to the allowable loads (see performance data section).

Anchor Diameter, d
Using the proper diameter bit, drill a hole into the base material to a depth of at least 1/4" deeper than the required embedment. The tolerances of the drill bit used should meet the requirements of ANSI Standard B212.15. Blow the hole clean of dust and other material.
Insert the anchor through the fixture. Drive the nail into the anchor body to expand it. Be sure the head is seated firmly against the fixture and that the anchor is at the proper embedment. Take care not to overdrive. This anchor is not recommended for use overhead.
