Purchase Sleeve Anchors

The Simpson round-headed sleeve anchor is called the round Sleeve-All®. The round-headed sleeve Simpson anchor has a slot on the head to allow a slotted screwdriver to be used to set the sleeve anchor in the base material. The round-headed Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor is used in applications where a finished look is desired or where a protruding head is not desired.

Finishes and Material for Round Sleeve Anchors

The round Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor from Simpson is available in standard zinc plated carbon steel and does not come in a stainless steel. The body of the anchor meets minimum tensile strengths of 50,000 psi and the round slotted head and sleeve are made from SAE J403 or ASTM A563 type of steel. Concrete Fasteners, Inc does have a stainless steel round-headed sleeve anchor available at www.concretefasteners.com

Round Sleeve-All® - Federal Specifications

Exceeds or meets federal specification requirements A-A-1992A for sleeve anchors.

Available Diameters

The round-headed Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor comes in two diameters of 1/4” and 3/8”. The head of the round-headed Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor is slotted to accept a slotted screwdriver if a phillips head is not available.

Round Sleeve-All® - Available Lengths

The 1/4” diameter round Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor comes in two lengths of 2” and 2-3/4” and the 3/8” diameter round Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor is available in three lengths of 2-1/2”, 3-3/4” and 4-3/4”. The length of round Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor to use for any particular application is calculated by adding the material thickness being fastened to the minimum embedment of the diameter of round Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor being used. The round Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor length is measured from under the head of the sleeve anchor; the head is not included in the length of the sleeve anchor.

Minimum Embedment for Round Sleeve Anchors

The round Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor’s minimum embedment is different for each of the diameters. The 1/4” round Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor’s minimum embedment is 1-1/8” and the 3/8” sleeve anchor’s minimum embedment is 1-1/2”. The sleeve anchor must be installed at least this deep into the base material for the anchor to have holding values less than what is published.

Diameter of Hole for Sleeve Anchors (round)

A hole needs to be drilled into the base material into which the round Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor will be placed. The hole diameter is different for each diameter of round Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor being used. A 1/4” round Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor requires a 1/4” hole and the 3/8” round Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor requires a 3/8” hole. With the round Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor, the diameter of the anchor equals the diameter of the hole that needs to be drilled into the base material. The hole needs to be drilled using a carbide tipped masonry bit that meets ANSI standards.

Length of Hole

When installing a round Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor into the base material, amounts of dust and debris can be created and space needs to be made at the bottom of the hole for this material to fall. Drilling the depth of the hole a minimum of 1/4” deeper than the sleeve anchor will penetrate will create the space that is needed. The depth of the hole can be of any length deeper than the minimum embedment plus 1/4” because the round Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor does not need the bottom of the hole for proper expansion.

Diameter of Hole in Fixture

The diameter of the hole in the fixture being fastened needs to be 1/8” larger than the designated diameter of the round Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor being installed. Expansion type anchors, like the round Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor, have designated diameters that are larger than a true diameter. If the hole in the fixture is equal to the diameter of round Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor being used, then the sleeve anchor will not fit through the hole.

Installing Round Sleeve Anchors

1. Drill a hole in the base material using the correct diameter ANSI standard bit for the diameter of round Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor being used and a hammer drill.

2. Use compressed air to clean out the hole of any dust and debris.

3. Unscrew the round head of the sleeve anchor so that just a thread or two is engaged.

4. Slide the round Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor through the fixture hole and into the hole drilled in the base material. The round Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor’s head should be tight against the fixture.

5. With a slotted screwdriver, turn the head clockwise until the round Sleeve-All® sleeve anchor is snug.
