How long is the anchor? I need it to be at lease 1.5 inches long to go through the stucco into t...

This insert is not made for wood. For wood you need the "elco female panelmate flush". It consists of a 1/4"x about 1 1/2" screw part on the bottom with a 3/4 to 1" female insert at the top. Will require predrilling twise. First a 3/16 by 2 1/2" for the screw then an 1" or so on top of that for the insert. Or it might be a drill bit that does both with one try. And yes. You can't use it on plywood. You have to install it close enough to the window to hit the stud. The middle of it.

It all depends on the size of the opening you are trying to cover. Refer to the engineering / installation materials at the mfg web site. I have some at 6 inches and others at 10.

They can only be used in masonry. The bolt is 1/4 -20 threads. I believe they have anchors that are available for wood thought.

The instructions say "masonry" and then, specify "concrete". Would these work in brick as well?

It is a good bit and worked as expected. I like the hex end for a no slip when in use.

I think you may be confusing the hardware descriptions. Clips come with the eight screws. You only need one anchor per Clip and the anchor assembly includes the stainless steel attachment bolt.

How long are these anchors and do I need a 7/16 masonary drill bit to install? Thanks.

Asked by Bob April 25, 2020

A 7/16" masonry drill bit is correct. The anchor is 2 1/8" long, so drill the hole slightly deeper and be sure to blow out the drilling debris.

I am pretty sure they can't. On a veneer home they want you to use the wood anchors. You can check by calling them.

We installed Astrogard fabric over 12 windows in 3 days including installing the fasteners to the fabric. Our house is made of concrete block and we bought the deluxe fasteners because we wanted to have a really secure installation. All the windows we covered are on the second floor so it took a 3 person team with one person on the extension ladder, one person footing the ladder, and one above handing things down or running errands. We also had one rotohammer, one heavy duty impact driver, and one cordless drill to get the installation done. By having all three tools available we didn't have to stop and change bits and the installation went quicker. We are very happy with the quality of the fasteners and the fabric and would recommend this to anyone living in a hurricane prone area. We expect to get a lot of inquiries from neighbors. We intend to leave them up for the next several months and don't expect that to be a problem since we have a friend who left one up on a side patio for 10 years. Even though it went through several tropical storms and hurricanes it still looked like new.

Had to return these and get the longer 2 5/8 ones that HD doesn't sell. These are not designed for poured concrete application. Read the paperwork before you buy, you may need "L" anchors.
