Can someone tell me what type of anchor this is? Need to move a ledger board down by about 16 inches and want to use a similar type of anchor. This one was installed about 35 years ago.

Looks like a regular run of the mill wedge anchor...

What field of construction you say you are in???

I think that's a sleeve anchor

But it could very well be as Griz said. A wedge anchor.

Thanks. I suspected that much. Will use double expansion anchors for the new ones though.

at first I thought that sleeve anchor wasn't embedded far enough because the collapsable part was visible, but the solid part of most brick (they have holes you know) is ~1" thick, it made a bit more sense. a tube of fast setting epoxy anchor is an option here.

alot of people won't care, but you're not supposed to mount a deck off of brick. JLC ran a helpful article awhile back on this topic.
