CONFAST® - 1/2" Double Expansion Anchor
The 1/2" Double Expansion Anchors are preassembled into a single unit and are packaged with 20 pieces per box. Their expansion for the entire length provides the optimal opportunity for successful fastening in masonry material of questionable strength. Whether it is one box or a full pallet, all orders over $25.00 ship with free freight.

The anchor is made from Zamac Alloy. This anchor is designed for use in Concrete, Block, and Brick.
The anchor is designed for use in a Moist environment.
Hole Diameter/Bit Diameter
The anchor requires a 7/8" hole to be drilled in the base material (Concrete, Block, and Brick). The hole should be drilled with carbide tipped bit that meets ANSI standards and used in a hammer drill.
The designated size of the anchor refers to the inside diameter 1/2" of the anchor or the diameter of the threaded rod or bolt that can be inserted into it.
Diameter of Anchor
The diameter of the anchor is 1/2".
The length of the anchor is 2-1/2"
The threads on the anchor are national coarse threads that measures 1/2" with 13 threads per inch, commonly referred to as 1/2"-13 .
The anchor is packaged with 20 pieces per box and one (1) correct sized carbide bit.
The minimum anchor embedment into the concrete is 2-1/2". Therefore, the anchor must be installed so that a minimum of 2-1/2" of the anchor is embedded into the concrete.
Depth of Hole
The depth of the hole that is required for the anchor should be a minimum of 1/2" deeper than the anchor will penetrate the concrete. This will allow space for dust created during the installation process to fall, which will prevent the anchor from bottoming out in the hole before full penetration into the concrete.
Fixture Hole Diameter
The hole in the fixture or material being fastened must be larger than the designated diameter of the anchor. The 1/2" diameter anchor requires the hole in the fixture to be 1".
The maximum torque that can be applied to the anchor once installed is 20 ft./lbs.
Spacing between Anchors
Each anchor must be spaced a minimum distance of 8-3/4" from each other when measured center to center.
It is very important not to install the anchor any closer than 4-3/8" from an unsupported edge of the concrete.
1/2" x 2-1/2"
- Drill a 7/8" hole into the concrete using a carbide-tipped bit that meets ANSI Standards B212.15.
- The depth of the hole can be deeper or equal to the minimum embedment depth of 2-1/2" which is equal to the length of the anchor .
- Clean the hole with a wire brush, vacuum, compressed air, or a blow-out bulb.
- Insert the anchor with its threaded end first into the hole.
- Place the fixture over the 1/2" Double Expansion Anchor, insert a 1/2" diameter bolt through the fixture and into the 1/2" Double Expansion Anchor.
- Use a wrench to turn the anchor clockwise until tight or maximum torque value 20 ft. lbs. is reached.
- Always use proper personal protective equipment per manufacturer's and OSHA instructions.
