FAQ’s

How do I install a Tapcon anchor?

First, drill a hole using a hammer-drill or rotary hammer in the hammer mode. Second, switch your drill out of hammer mode and position the Tapcon anchor into a nut driver or onto a Phillips bit. Then drive the anchor into the pre-drilled hole until it is fully seated. For more information, click here

How deep do I drill the pilot hole?

The drilled hole for a 3/16", 1/4" and 5/16" anchors requires a 1/4" deeper hole, and the 3/8" and 1/2" anchors require a 1/2" deeper hole. This will ensure that any dust that settles in the hole will not interfere with the Tapcon threads.

Can I use standard ANSI drill bits to secure Tapcon drill bits?

3/8" and 1/2" Tapcon anchors can use standard ANSI drill bits. 3/16", 1/4" and 5/16" Tapcon anchors require specially engineered Tapcon drill bits, which are designed with tighter tolerances than standard ANSI drill bits for maximum holding power.

Why do I need to clean the hole?

Cleaning the hole prevents any dust that settles into the hole from potentially interfering with the Tapcon threads.

Can I drill a pilot hole using a drill rotation-only movement?

Although you can drill through concrete with a carbide-tipped bit using a rotary drill only, it will take longer and significantly reduce the drill bit life. For optimal performance, it is highly recommended to drill through concrete with a rotary hammer or hammer drill in the hammer mode. It is also recommended that the drill flutes be cleared 2 or 3 times when drilling.
