Install expansion bolts with eye
In order to assemble the expansion bolts with eye, you will need: a (hammer) drill, a concrete drill or hammer drill, a expansion bolt and a wrench. When using our hammer drills you must have a drill with SDS plus connection. For each expansion bolt it is indicated which drill size you need to mount the expansion bolt in stone or concrete. To make an example, we will take our expansion bolt M6 x 70 mm. You must pre-drill this with a concrete or hammer drill 10 mm thick. To make sure that the expansion bolt fits completely, drill 45 mm deep. With a hammer, if necessary, you can gently hammer in the expansion bolt so that it sits in the wall up to the ring under the eye.
Anchor the expansion bolt in the wall
To anchor the expansion bolt, tighten the nut with a 10 mm open-ended spanner for M6 bolts. The expansion sleeve at the back will expand during tightening, so that the expansion bolt is firmly anchored in the wall. Note: for expansion bolts, fixed is fixed. Do not overtighten while tightening the nut. Expansion bolts are extremely strong. If you keep turning there is a chance that your brick will break. This is of course not the intention.
