Probably the most common application for split drive anchors are the tamper proofing of wood to concrete, but they also make excellent underlayment. In general, these anchors are made from Grade 2 carbon steel with zinc coating.

One of the easiest ways to install a split drive anchor is by drilling a small hole in the base material. This will allow the anchor to expand as it is driven into the concrete. The hole should be no larger than a quarter inch and is best drilled with a carbide tipped bit. If you have a large hole in the base material, it will reduce the anchor's load capacity.

This type of anchor is typically manufactured in 1/4" diameter size and is available in multiple lengths. There are two main types: the flat head and the round head. The flat head is designed to sit flush with the surface it is attached to, while the round head is meant for applications where the head is above the surface of the item being fastened. A flat head is a good choice for light duty applications, while a round head is best suited for heavier weight materials.

The best way to install a split drive anchor is by making sure that the hole you're drilling is large enough to allow the anchor to expand. This means that you'll need a hammer and a drill. There are many reasons to choose a split drive as your anchor of choice, but the best part is that you'll get a nice flush finish. The split drive's most notable drawback is that it cannot be removed by conventional means.

A split drive is not a particularly cheap anchor, but it does offer several benefits. One of these is the fact that you can install these anchors in almost any type of concrete, so it is highly unlikely that you'll run into a problem with your anchor if you choose to install it on a concrete slab. Another benefit of using a split drive is that you don't have to worry about the anchor pulling out of the hole in your floor or wall. With a split drive, you'll be able to rest easy knowing that it is a permanent fixture, albeit one that will last a long time.
