Anchor bolts with eye are mainly used in the garden. Installing these anchor bolts is fairly straightforward. No experience with installing anchor bolts? No problem! Below, we explain in detail how to install anchor bolts with eye.
Install anchor bolts with eye
In order to install the expansion bolts with eye, you will need: a (hammer) drill, a masonry drill bit, an anchor bolt, and a spanner. When using our hammer drill bits, you must have a drill with SDS plus connection. For each anchor bolt, it is indicated which drill bit size you need to mount the bolt in stone or concrete. As an example, we will take our anchor bolt M6 x 70 mm. You will have to drill a pilot hole with a concrete or hammer drill bit 10 mm thick. To make sure that the anchor bolt fits, drill 45 mm deep. With a hammer, if necessary, you can gently hit the anchor bolt so that it sits in the wall up to the washer under the eye.
Secure the anchor bolt in the wall
To anchor the bolt, tighten the nut with a 10 mm open-ended spanner for M6 bolts. This will make the sleeve at the back expand, which causes the anchor bolt to be firmly anchored in the wall. Note: for anchor bolts, fixed is fixed. Do not overtighten while tightening the nut. Anchor bolts are extremely strong. If you keep turning the nut, there is a chance that your brick will break. This is of course not the intention.
