Purchase Nylon Nail-It Anchors

Before installing Nylon Nail-it Anchors, certain technical specifications should be considered to ensure a safe and proper installation. These anchors are available in 3/16” and 1/4” diameters. Three head styles are offered - round, flat and mushroom - allowing the nylon-nail to meet a variety of fastening needs. The hole diameter is equal to the anchor diameter and only a hammer is required for installation.

Lengths:
To determine the required Anchor length, simply add the thickness of the material to be fastened to the minimum embedment.

Spacing:
The forces on these anchors are transferred to the base material in which it is installed. If the anchors are installed too close together, it can cause an interaction of the forces, thus reducing the holding power of the anchor.

As a rule of thumb, the expansion anchor industry has established a minimum standard of ten (10) anchor diameters for spacing between anchors and five (5) anchor diameters from any unsupported edge. When vibration or sudden impacts are part of the load conditions, the spacing between anchors should be increased.
