  • Wood Stud

Installing AnchorHog in Concrete or Brick

NECESSARY TOOLS

Cordless or Electric Hammer Drill
3/16” Masonry Drill Bit
Ratchet Wrench w/ 5/16” Socket

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Find a location for the AnchorHog® that will minimize the distance to the equipment you want to secure.
  2. If you are not sure of all of the possibilities for securing your equipment, you may want to consider mounting multiple AnchorHogs® every 5-10 feet apart in the area where you plan to store your equipment.
  3. After finding the desired location, mark one (1) of the four (4) holes on the concrete surface, remove the base plate and drill the first hole 3” deep (¼” deeper than the anchor bolt). Use a 3/16” masonry drill bit.
  4. After the first hole is drilled to the proper depth, remove the concrete dust and place the base plate over the hole.
  5. When the base plate hole aligns with the hole in the concrete, insert the anchor bolt in the hole and tighten down to a snug fit.* Square up the base plate and complete tightening the first anchor bolt.
  6. Now with the base plate squared and firmly in place, drill the other three (3) holes with the base plate in place.
  7. After the other three (3) holes are drilled to the proper depth, remove the concrete dust, insert the other three (3) anchor bolts and tighten all anchor bolts firmly. *

* NOTE: Caution
If you select the impact drill (optional tools) to run the anchor bolt near the base, keep the head of the anchor bolt approximately ¼” from contacting the base. Use the ratchet wrench for final tightening.

Installing AnchorHog in Wood Stud

NECESSARY TOOLS

Cordless or Electric Drill
3/16” Wood/Metal Drill Bit
Ratchet Wrench w/ 5/16” Socket

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Find a location for the AnchorHog® that will minimize the distance to the equipment you want to secure.
  2. If you are not sure of all of the possibilities for securing your equipment, you may want to consider mounting multiple AnchorHogs® every 5-10 feet apart in the area where you plan to store your equipment.
  3. If your mounting surface is drywall over wood studs, locate the studs with a stud finder so that the anchor bolt will penetrate deep into the wood. (Note: Do not mount AnchorHog® on drywall over metal studs.)
  4. After finding the desired location, mark one (1) of the holes on the drywall surface, remove the base plate and drill the first hole 2 ½” deep (¼” less than the anchor bolt). Use a 3/16” wood/metal drill bit.
  5. After the first hole is drilled to the proper depth, place the base plate over the hole and insert the first anchor bolt and tighten to a snug fit. *
  6. Now with the base plate squared and firmly in place, drill the other hole(s) with the base plate in place.
  7. Insert the other anchor bolt(s) and tighten all anchor bolts firmly.

* NOTE: Caution
If you select the impact drill (optional tools) to run the anchor bolt near the base, keep the head of the anchor bolt approximately ¼” from contacting the base. Use the ratchet wrench for final tightening.
