Concrete


Hi I am pouring a concrete slab ( I mainly do drywall) and want to put eye bolts in it. Do I just push them into the slab after I pour it or mount them ?

Re: Concrete


how big are they and what kind of load will be on them?

how many?

if they aren't too big you can wet set them but at the very least buy them too long and bend a hook in the end or put a washer and nut on them.

Re: Concrete


What are they for?

Are they anchor bolts?

Bolts for hold downs?

How much slop can you get away with?

I always wet set mine, but I don’t just stick em in like candles in a cake.

Chances of them staying where you want them are pretty slim.

I always use some kind of mount or holder.

On form boards, I’ll use the blue Simpson holders.

On block walls, I’ll use a wood form stake with a hole drilled through it.

Re: Concrete


Oh and if you’re using those 23” long deformed bolts for CMUs, with a ton of bar in the block, good luck shoving those in.

Re: Concrete


You gotta jiggle them a little, I always do a 1/4 turn once they are in for good luck.

Re: Concrete


A female fitting, A "Nut" with a few smaller pieces of rebar welded to, taped over to stay clean while finishing slab.....much easier to get and keep a quality FLAT finish with an embedded 'nut'/ female fastener device, then screw the eye bolts into the slab,

Don't omit the spreader bar jig to ensure there are Zero side loads on the lifting chains/slings

Normally you go all crazy with suggestions, but this is actually a great way to go. As far as the female fittings. Not sure the easiest way to get upload strength though.
