- Tamping Pin tool
- Hammer or rubber mallet
- Lubricant – Teflon or silicone spray
Anchor Hole Drilling
Once you have determined and marked the exact locations of Anchor hole, you can drill holes to accept the Anchor Shells. Make sure to keep the drill perpendicular to the deck surface. Measure the drill bit beveled depth. Then add the height of the anchor shell. Mark this measurement onto your drill bit with electrical tape or use drill guide. Drill the hole into the deck NO MORE THAN THE DEPTH of the Brass Anchor Shell taking care not to over-ream the diameter of the hole. If this does happen, simply apply some adhesive to the Brass Anchor Shell before setting it into the hole. Drilling dust can be removed with a vacuum cleaner or carefully blown out.
Due to the nature of poured concrete, some chipping is normal. This chipping can be reduced by
using a sharp diamond tip drill bit and a high speed rotary hammer drill. Also our WS014 Brass Anchor Collars should be considered as an option for hiding chipped edges of the deck surface near drilled hole and enhancing the beauty of your deck.
When your anchor hole is properly prepared, remove the Brass Anchor insert and the Brass Anchor
Shell can be lightly tamped into position by inserting the tamping tool into the Brass Anchor Shell
and temp it into the deck with a hammer or mallet until it is flush with the deck surface. If you don't have a tamping tool we recommend our WS017 anchor tamping pin tool.
A light Teflon or Silicone spray on the tamping tool prior to tamping will facilitate its easy removal
after insertion of Brass Anchor Shell into the drilled hole. If the tamping tool should become
jammed into the Brass Anchor Shell, try gently tapping the tool on the lateral sides to loosen it
while pulling in an upward direction.
Note: To keep smooth operation it is recommended that anchor inserts be removed each
fall and spring and shells cleaned out to remove any dirt or debris. The Brass Anchor Insert may also be lightly coated with a Silicone or Teflon spray to ensure smooth operation. DO NOT USE OIL OR GREASE!
