Purchase Hammer Drive Anchors

The Hilti metal hit anchor is the name for its drive-in type expansion anchor. The generic name for this type of anchor is the hammer drive anchor. The metal hit anchor is made of zinc plated or stainless steel. The drive nail that comes with the anchor body is made from an aluminum/zinc alloy. The stainless steel metal hit anchor is rust resistant and can be used in outdoor applications. The metal hit anchor is a light duty fastener designed for use in concrete and/or masonry. It is easy to use and has a low profile, mushroom head that is tamper resistant once it is set in the base material.

The metal hit anchor is available in two diameters- 3/16" and 1/4". The 3/16" diameter comes in one length of 7/8". The 1/4" diameter comes in numerous lengths including: 3/4", 1", 1-1/4", 1-1/2" and 2". Hilti does not sell the 1/4" metal hit anchor in lengths longer than 2". However, ConcreteFasteners.com does sell hammer drive anchors in 2-1/2" and 3" lengths.

The hole to be drilled into the base material for the metal hit anchor should be drilled with a proper hammer drill. The hammer drill will produce a precise hole. The carbide bits that are used should also meet the correct ANSI standards.

The installation of these Hilti metal hit anchors can be completed in three simple steps that are outlined below:

1. Using a hammer drill, drill a hole into the base material a minimum of 1/4" deeper than the metal hit anchor will penetrate.

2. Insert the metal hit anchor through the fixture and into the hole drilled in the base material.

3. With a hammer, carefully strike the nail of the metal hit anchor until the head is flush with the anchor body. It is important not to overdrive the nail of the metal hit anchor.

Metal hit anchors can be used in numerous light duty concrete fastening applications. Before determining which concrete anchor you should use, be sure to consider all of the important factors involved in the application. To help ensure proper installation, it is recommended that you start with the installation steps outlined above.
