How many pounds can these screws support?

Answer

In concrete, the pull-out strength is 650 lbs and the shear strength is 720 lbs. In cinder or hollow block, both strengths are 340 lbs. This is all dependent on a good installation of the screw (not overtightened and right size pilot hole).

Asked by DBM January 25, 2021

Answer

Yes, this will work well. Now you don’t want the new tapcon to be loose in the hole, so you may need to drill the hole a little larger and use the corresponding next size tapcon. Most concrete needs a hammer drill to get through easily. Like all tapcons, the drilled hole needs to be deeper than the tapcon length less the width of what it holds to be tight.

You would need a much larger screw in both diameter and length. I am not sure what building code is but I would use at least 3" in length and 1/4" in diameter.

Answers

The TAPCON products are very reliable for use in concrete and cement application. Be sure to match the proper 'Drill TYPE and SIZE' to tthe screws to be used for your project. Many of the packages/kits include the proper 'matching drill' for the screw selected. Match the SCREW size to the the amount of weight intended to be held on your shelf. Do not drill through the concrete creating a potential leak.

Is a tap on screw to use outside?

The screws are coated so they should not rust easily.

The Tapcon Concrete Anchors is a good choice for fastening to masonry. The fasteners come in a verity of sizes and hold fast in concrete and brick. You do have to use a masonry drill bit to make the hole for the Tapcon anchor screw. The screws can be removed easily, unlike masonry nails.

Useless
Bought these in 2 3/4 inch to attach a 2 x4 to my concrete garage floor. I even predrilled holes in the concrete so they would go in easier. I tried securing 6 tapcon screws and all 6 twisted off leaving metal sticking out of the floor. Had to wreck my concrete to get the broken screws out and then fill the damaged areas with concrete patck. THANKS TAPCON.

Many screws defective
Several of the screws in the package were defective and had to be discarded. Several of the screws had heads that were filled with metal, making it impossible to get the bit inside the head.

The screws work really well. The drill bit doesn't last too long when drilling into HARD concrete. I would get one drill bit for every 10-15 screws. Also, the drill motor used is important. If the bearings are loose or the bit wobbles, it can cause the hole to be JUST a little to wide. This causes the screw to strip the concrete. If this happens, I add a wood wedge.

I attached several boxwood panels to a block wall using a combo hammer/rotary drill. The screws and the included drill bit worked very well and never gave me any problems. I used about 100 screws. I will be using again for various projects.
