Drilling:

Drill a hole at least 1/4” deeper than the anchor embedment using a hammer drill and the appropriate drill bit size.



Sliding:

Slide the Condrive® Installation tool over the drill bit and snap in the drill adapter and snap into the chuck. Then place the hex or Phillips bit into the appropriate Condrive tool end. Position a 3/16” or 1/4” diameter anchor-bolt onto the end of the sleeve.



Drive:

Drive the anchor-bolt into the pre-drilled pilot hole until it is fully seated. The torque-adjusted driver prevents over-torqueing of the anchor head by automatically disengaging when it comes into contact with the fixture surface.
