A strike anchor is an impact expansion type anchor used to anchor an item to solid concrete. The anchor has a body made of carbon steel and a drive pin made of hardened steel.
These fasteners are used for light duty fastening in concrete only. They can’t be used in other masonry materials.
The anchor is set in the concrete by hammering the pin down the middle of the anchor.
The anchor includes a body made of carbon steel and a drive pin made of hardened steel.
The anchor is plated with yellow dichromate zinc plating.
