Rated 3 out of 5Â by Steelsey Disapointed
I often buy Fischer products as I find them to be good quality and despite having a questionable religious fish symbol stamped into them I have always been impressed with. Unfortunately with these anchor bolts I was disappointed as 7 out 10 refused to get a grip in the concrete and take hold so they just spun around, most disappointing.

Bought these to attach a staircase to the adjacent wall whilst snagging after a professional installation that left the stairs creaking on every step. An anchor was used under every tread and now we have no more creaks. Easy to use and value for money. Bought in store and was given excellent advice on which type and size of anchor I needed.

Used these to fix battens to old crumbling brick wall, performed very well expanding sufficient to gain solid fixings in poor medium to give overall solid structure. Used 12mm drill ( should be 10mm but didn't have one long enough) and still done the job.

I have now used about 30 or so of these to secure 25mm plywood to ceclon, and concrete block through plaster. I used a 10mm masonry drill and had SIGNIFICANT problems getting any bite of the tapered screw on the end to enable tightening to secure the anchor bolt. On average it took me about 20 mins / bolt, sometimes longer. I tried taping, preferential greasing, pinching EVERYTHING to make the thread preferentially pull the taper towards the bolt head, rather than spin with the bolt, turning endlessly. A method pulling with a claw hammer to pre-pull the taper helped, but not reliably. I only needed to secure these in shear (load across the bolt) so think of these as 10mm nails at best. WHY IS THERE NO LIP on the taper to prevent turning relative to the sleeve? RUBBISH
