cautionCaution: Oversized holes will make it difficult to set the anchor and will lower the anchor's load capacity.

Not for use in overhead applications
These anchors are not recommended for eccentric tension (prying) loading. Capacity can be greatly reduced in such applications.


  • Drill a hole in the base material using a carbide drill bit the same diameter as the nominal diameter of the anchor to be installed. Drill the hole to the specified embedment depth plus 1/8" for pin extension and blow it clean using compressed air. Alternatively, drill the hole deep enough to accommodate embedment depth and dust from drilling.
  • Position fixture, insert Nailon anchor.
  • Tap with hammer until flush with fixture; drive pin until flush with top of head.
