Aerosmith®’s Drop-ins are machine type bolt heavy duty mechanical anchors available in 304 and 316 SS as well as carbon steel. The body is internally threaded for use in flush mount applications and solid base materials. Aerosmith® also offers a coil thread version for concrete forming applications available in both 1/2” and 3/4” diameters. A shallow embedment drop-in is also available which is made from carbon steel and can be used in solid concrete, hollow concrete, plank, hardstone and solid brick. Typical applications include hanging threaded rod overhead. Installation is easy. Pre-drill a hole using the proper diameter for the anchor, tap anchor into pre-drilled hole until flush with base material. Use the appropriate setting tool to properly set the anchor and hammer the back of the setting tool until neck is flush with the top of the anchor. Put fixture in place and insert the machine bolt and tighten to the required torque. If using overhead, insert threaded rod to the minimal thread engagement which should be equal to the nominal diameter of the threaded insert. This product can be used in overhead applications.
