Great product - tricky installation.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kryptonite Stronghold Ground Anchor (Sports)
I really would actually like to give this product two ratings. Five stars for design and the product itself but two stars for installation!!! I found it an absolute pig to install onto my garage floor. I have a normal concrete garage floor and a reasonably capable Bosch rotary hammer drill, yet it took me the best part of an hour to install this thing. I followed the instructions to the letter but I just found the drilling really hard going. Maybe the masonry drill bit supplied wasn't up to the challenge I don't know. Maybe the older style concrete in my garage just made life difficult for this drill....? Also in drilling concrete the holes aren't smooth sided so a couple of the bolts seemed to get stuck about a centimetre proud of the garage floor, so I had to take the Allen bolt out and smash the softer brass bolt into the garage floor, luckily the splines on the bolt split outward and I was able to knock the bolts flush to the floor. Then, despite following the instructions to the letter, the holes in the floor didn't line up precisely with the holes in the plate which made it a real faff to get the Allen bolts in. All in all a pretty tortuous experience in my book. I may well have done something wrong so I wouldn't let it put people off buying it, but be warned....
