The design of the Tapcon® concrete masonry screw anchors allows for anchoring into concrete, brick and block. This American-made product is a self-tapping screw that taps threads into a predrilled hole in masonry materials. The patented Advanced Threadform Technology™ lowers installation torque to reduce head snapping, provide higher holding power and deliver the unparalleled performance that professionals expect. The Tapcon® concrete masonry screw anchors are uniquely engineered to provide easy installation and consistently high holding values in most masonry materials. Installation near the edge of concrete is possible because the Tapcon® concrete masonry screw anchors do not create an outward pressure from expansion.
The Tapcon® brand of masonry fasteners are divided into five categories. These categories include the standard blue Tapcon®, the 410 stainless steel Tapcon®, the Large Diameter Tapcon, the special bits used in the installation tool kit and the tool kit.
