Drop-in anchors consist of a tubular expansion shield that is pre-assembled with an internal, cone-shaped expansion plug. They often also feature a smooth, flangeless top that allows for flush embedment. Intended for use in concrete, drop-in anchors are useful when a bolt needs to be inserted and removed as well as for any application that requires a flush-mounted anchor, such as suspending ductwork, electrical cable trays or sprinkler pipe or heads. Concrete drop-in expansion anchors come in a variety of styles, from mini drop-ins that allow for shallow embedment to standard knurled anchors that offer exceptional holding power.
