Zinc Nailon™ Pin Drive Anchors

Zinc Nailon™

Zinc Nailon™ anchors are low-cost, easy-to-install anchors for applications under static loads.

Key Features

  • Available with carbon and stainless-steel pins
  • Pin and head configuration designed to make anchor tamperresistant

Material

  • Body – Die-cast Zamac 3 alloy
  • Pin – Carbon steel; Type 304 stainless steel

Installation

  1. Drill a hole in base material using a carbide drill bit the same diameter as the nominal diameter of the anchor to be installed. Drill the hole to specified embedment depth, plus 1/4" for pin extension, and blow hole clean using compressed air. Alternatively, drill the hole deep enough to accommodate embedment depth and dust from drilling.
  2. Position fixture and insert Nailon anchor.
  3. Tap with hammer until flush with fixture, then drive pin until flush with top of head.

Caution

  • Not for use in overhead applications.
  • Nailon anchors are not recommended for eccentric tension (prying) loads — capacity will be greatly reduced in such applications.

Codes

  • Meets Federal Specification A-A-1925A, Type 1.
