                    Do I need to remove the nut and washer from the anchor prior to using the wedge anchor setting tool?

                      Yes. Failure to do so will result in damage to the tool that will not be covered by warranty.

                        No, anchors actually set better in the rotary hammer function.

                          Do I need to clean the anchor hole before installing the anchor?

                            Yes, all procedures of cleaning or blowing out the anchor hole before anchor installation must be adhered to prior to installing and setting the anchor.

                            How do I maintain and care for my concrete anchor setting tool?

                              All of the Set It FAST Setting Tools have have a C-clip at the back of the tool. That allows the tool to be taken apart and cleaned should the tool become soiled by dust or the build up of dirt.

                              If the tool sleeve doesn't slide easily it may require dismantling and cleaning. Remove the C-clip and slide the sleeve to the back of the tool and blow out the tool or spray it with graphite spray. The graphite spray will loosen up any dirt or dust. Just wipe the components clean, re-assemble and the tool should now function properly.

                                How long will my tool last?

                                  Tool life is a function of use and abuse. It is generally believed that a drop-in tool will have an effective life of between 250 -500 anchor installations, depending if the installer stops hammering when the anchor has been effectively set. The setting tip will eventually break from crystallization due metal fatigue from the hammering of the tool.

                                    What do I do if the self retracting sleeve starts sticking?

                                      Blow out the tool with compressed air and apply a silicone based lubricant.

                                        What do I do if my tool breaks prematurely?

                                          Return it for examination and replacement. Call us at 775-830-7114 or complete our online form to get the processes started.

                                          What safety precautions should I take when using a concrete setting tool?

                                            Safety should never be overlooked or under appreciated. People, their lives, and their ability to continue to work should never be jeopardized by a construction practice that could cause injury to the individual.

                                            Having said that, the biggest danger when setting concrete anchors is doing overhead work and working off a ladder. It is difficult to keep your balance when looking up. And the older you get, the easier it is to lose your balance. So the worker needs a stable platform for working over head. So it is highly recommended that this work be done with a scissors lift or mechanized platform of some type.

                                            OSHA has recently changed the rules on overhead work and a worker must work from a scissors lift if the work is over a certain elevation above the floor elevation. Consult your safety officer for current regulations.
