The company’s new patented proprietary anchor the Snake +-one of the industry’s first mechanical anchors to meet the new International Building Code-is simply set into a drilled hole and then tightened with an impact wrench until flush with the ceiling and ready for the insertion of threaded rod. It eliminates the time consuming steps of banging in a drop-in and then using a special tool to set the expansion mechanism.

The anchor also combines the aesthetics of an internally threaded body with the strong holding power of the Powers wedge-bolt anchor and its patented deep-cutting thread design.
