Requires drilling two 10mm, 100mm deep holes (with masonry bit like a 10x150) and to widen the entrance of the holes to 14mm (with a 14mm masonry bit, any length will do as you only need a few cm).

For fitting, I would suggest placing the assembled anchor in the desired position (including sleeves), to drill a 1 cm deep hole by passing the bit through one of the sleeves, then to insert a screw in the sleeve and hole and do the same on the other side. The holes are easily and reliably marked in this way. The drilling can then be completed. Beware, this product is not very tolerant of drilling at angles, you need to drill straight down through your surface or you might struggle to fit the fixing through.

The depth of the holes makes the process impossible on thinner wall and is also problematic on thinner walled buildings. When installing the anchor on a thin walled brick property, I found myself reaching the plaster on the other side (but happily not breaking through)

The screws are good quality and the whole assembly is pretty easy. Inserting the rivets that cover the screw heads is a bit of a faff but happens after reasonable amounts of cursing.

For the price, and if you are able to drill in the floor or wall to a depth of 10cm without issues, this is a really good product. if not, prefer a product that uses shorter stubbier metal sheathed fixings.

I've seen this as much as £40 elsewhere so for £9 on Amazon it seemed like it was a misprint!

Great value wall anchor from one of the leading names in security locks. I needed to buy 2 drill bits (a long 10mm for the wall screws and a short 16mm to countersink the metal sleeves) to a total cost of £9 so it was £18 all in and on the wall. I deliberately stripped the screw heads once they were in and then hammered the metal covers in so its a sledgehammer job to get it off (you can never have too many anchor points in a garage!)

It's solid as a rock on the garage wall behind my Boardman bike with a heavy duty U lock locking them together, peace of mind as you'd need time and heavy duty tools to steal my bike now!

I purchased this in order to secure a kayak which I have just bought. It took a couple of attempts to attach it to the wall as one needs an extra long 10mm drill bit to drill the hole. The other observation I would make is that the plastic parts are a bit flimsy and it would improve the product geatly if these were metal sheaths. Have only had it a week so that's it for now!

Easy enough to fit with the right tools, but be careful if you want to fit it to a garage wall of one brick thickness. You need to drill holes 100mm deep with a 12mm drill, and this would go right through a standard brick. You then need to counter-sink each hole with a 16mm drill - which you won't find in your standard DIY kit. Provided you have the right drill and bits, then it's easy - drill the holes, tap the bolts in, turn a few time and it's done. Feels very secure.

I am very happy with this wall anchor. I bought two to lock my bike on the (public) balcony.
One of my D-locks goes through the anchor and the frame, another d-lock through the front wheel and a steel cable runs from one lock through the 2nd anchor, though the back wheel and the frame, to the other d-lock.
It seems very strong and safe now and I hope it is enough to keep thiefs away.
Installation was easy although I did have to buy a 16 mm drill.
Now my only worry is having to remove them in case we'd move house...

I have used one of these wall anchors to secure my motorcycle for many years, but when I had to upgrade the lock and chain to one specified by my insurers I found that the opening is too small for a typical 12mm diameter link chain. Otherwise an excellent product.

Good price for a well designed anchor.
Needed a 14mm driil bit for the metal inserts not the 16mm described in the instructions.

This is a well made product. Very strong and reasonably priced. However, it come with wall anchors made for concrete or brick and suggests that for softer walls, like limestone, other bolts should be chosen. Hmmmm. What about wood? I know this was made in Germany, where they don't have wood framed houses, but it's sold in America, where wood framing is the PRIMARY home building material. Did this never even enter their minds?!!!!!!!!!!!!! There are absolutely no suggestions on how to anchor this to your wood framed garage, porch etc. You're supposed to hammer in the metal caps after installation to prevent screw removal but if you are mounting this on drywall, you're going to beat the wall do death in the process.

Back to the drawing board!
