Questions & Answers

Can I use this bolts for a Ledger on a Deck outdoor?

Can I use this bolts for a Ledger on a Deck outdoor?
Asked by: DYIer
As long as you are mounting the ledger to a concrete block wall these are great anchors. Just drill a hole through the board and the concrete block, tap the anchor in place and tighten down the nut.

What is the best paint to use on the zinc plated wedge anchors?

Asked by: TimmyT
The wedge anchors should not be painted before installed/tightened to the setting torque as the paint can alter frictional characteristics and therefore performance of the anchor. We do not have any restrictions if just painting the nut and exposed top part of the anchor after installed/tightened, however we do not have any information/guidelines to provide regarding painting zinc coated steel as this is not our area of expertise. You may wish to check further with a paint manufacturer or the American Galvanizers Association for information on painting zinc coated/galvanized steel. Thank you!

Are they available in hot dipped galvanized?For use with pressure treated pine.
Asked by: Wrenchman
The STB2-50512R25 is zinc plated which provides a low level of corrosion resistance and can be used with limited treated lumbers in dry service only (generally interior). This anchor is also available in Type 304 Stainless Steel (STB2-505124SS) which provides a high level of corrosion resistance and Type 316 (STB2-505126SS) which provides severe level of corrosion protection. Please see the "Guidelines for Selecting the Proper Materials and Coatings" page on our website to determine the recommended finish based on your condition. Thank you!

Whats the uplift resistance rating for use on gazebo/porch post application? Thx

Whats the uplift resistance rating for use on gazebo/porch post application? Thx
Asked by: Al
Can't say but after drilling the correct size, 1/2" hole with a new Bosch concrete/masonry bit and following the instructions on the package to pound this wedge anchor in place (per my review) and having the anchor just spin in the hole and not grab when trying to tighten the nut, I won't be buying this brand again. I used it to anchor a Simpson Strong tie 4 X 4 post-base bracket to my concrete for the bottom post of a stairway handrail to my deck and this thing's failure botched the entire project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple anchor and it worked well. A bit hard... Simple anchor and it worked well. A bit hard getting a hole deeper than the anchor but with a good cleaning out the anchors went in with some firm hammering. Nice to be able to buy a medium quantity of 10 and not have to go with the expensive single units or the over kill box of 25!

After taking the time and buying an expensive bosch masonry bit and carefully drilling the 1/2" hole required with my hammer-drill, I hammered the Strong Bolt into the hole and used a socket wrench to tighten the nut after the bolt was installed all the way down into the hole to the flat washer in the concrete. The bolt just turned in the hole when turning the nut and would not expand nor grip the concrete which screwed-up the entire project. Should have bought another product. I have successfully installed expansion bolts into concrete before so apparently, this one was defective.
