When attaching to a block wall is it best to go into the mortar joint or into the actual block? I've heard both.

Answer: 
I would prefer going into the actual block at a web so you get holding power. If you go into a mortar joint there may be weak spots or even voids.

Answer: 
Hi Clayton,
Thank you for your question. We recommend that you attach to the actual block. If you are using a rotary hammer (we suggest you have it on rotary mode only, with hammering off). Rotary hammers are very aggressive and you are more likely to blow out the back end of the block, reducing the effective embedment depth.

Answer: 
Yes but make sure the screw length will provide adequate depth to hold the wood to the concrete. I would expect that to be about 2" minimum, more if possible.

Answer: 
Yes you can. I would seriously consider using a small wedge anchor or lag shield if you can. They are more consistent, easier to install, and will snug up nicely.

Yes, you can use these HWH Tapcon concrete anchor screws to attach steel plates to the slab. You can also use the Tapcons to attach 2x4's to a concrete slab, you may want to use a flat head Tapcon if you want the head to be flush with the 2x4's.
Please follow the proper instructions when installing Tapcons, which can be found at the bottom of the page at www.tapcon.com/products/blue-climaseal

Also, make sure you follow the guidelines for slab thickness, anchor spacing, and edge spacing requirements to ensure the Tapcon anchors have maximum performance.
Minimum concrete member thickness should be 4 inches, effective embedment depth should be 1-1/2 inches, minimum edge distance should be 2 inches, and minimum anchor spacing should be 3 inches. All this information should be located on the data sheets that are packaged with every Tapcon anchor pack. Read Less

I use the drill bit that is included to drill my pilot holes. It seems to drill a hole too large, because when I put in the screw, it doesn't grip anything and I can pull it out by hand. What am I doing wrong?

Answer: 
Hello Bennygirl,
The drill bit for a 1/4" dia. screw is supposed to be 3/16" dia.
That allows for the hole to be 1/16" smaller than the screw. It is possible you have the wrong size bit. You must drive that bit in straight, so you don't increase the size of the hole by working it side to side. You can take it back to the store to measure the size of the bit.
Thank you for your Read More

1/4 in. x 2-3/4 in. Polymer Plated Steel Hex-Washer-Head Indoor/Outdoor Concrete Anchors (75-Pack) is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 100% success in 2 projects I used these on. Reading all of the reviews took a lot of time and mad... 100% success in 2 projects I used these on. Reading all of the reviews took a lot of time and made me hesitate to buy these. Well I just went for it, bought them, installed as per instructions. 1. Hammer drill 2. blow out holes with compressed air 3. impact drill to install them. I installed 100 of these into brick, not mortar, and every single one went in with no challenge, had a super tight grip, none of them snapped. I will continue to use these and recommend to others. I watched a few videos on youtube of people installing them and that was helpful. I'm not sure why so many negative reviews as I had a perfect experience. Best of luck with your project.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Test Failure After shearing off smaller diameter Tapcom screws I purchased these screws. Due to the previous failure I found a spare brick that I could try these out on. After drilling the pilot hole of the specified diameter and depth, I tried installing these to determine if they would hold. About 3/4 of the depth embedded the screw began turning freely. I backed it out to find most of the tread material broken off. No holding power for the intended application. Another failure.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Great in theory.... I have always been intrigued by the Tapcon concrete anchors. Over the years I have tried this product many times only to be disappointed. Even when following the installation instructions exactly, it is hit or miss whether you can actually drive the anchor fully and snug the steel or wood member up to the concrete. The installation time and the lack of consistency just doesn't justify the cost difference compared to a wedge anchor or a lag shield anchor.

Definitely hit or miss as to whether they will bite into the wall or not. They were sturdy for me and I didn't have any trouble with them shearing. They did tend to bend or chip easily though One tip I will give is to definit3ely follow the instructions and make sure all the dust is out of the hole before screwing in. Makes a huge difference!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Work great in concrete!!!! These work great in concrete slab that i had to attach some plates to. The included drill bit was COMPLETE GARBAGE! Not straight at all. Had to get my hammer drill and drill bit to bore out straight holes. Tips on using these tapcons 1) Bore hole must be drilled 2) When screwing in tapcon /MUST BE SAME ANGLE AS BORE HOLE

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great in brick I'm hanging shutters with these. They are great in brick, but if you are drilling into mortar mix between the brick, virtually all mortar mix will crumble and the screw won't hold. Anything and anybody is trying to drill and get to hold in mortar is a loss cause. Drilling holes in brick is a pain in the butt!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tapcon Products Do Not Work! I have tried using them in the past because I think the concept is good but they pulled out, broke, or stripped out. It has been awhile and I thought they might have upgraded the product so I tried them again. No change...useless. I returned the whole pack which either broke or stripped.
