J-Hook Anchor Complete W/ Strap & Split Bolt
J-Hooks are used to anchor the home in concrete. They must be installed prior to the concrete being cured.
A buckle strap will wrap the frame and fasten to the anchor head with a split bolt.
7' Buckle Strap
Split Bolt w/Nut
J-hook Installation Instructions:
1.) The J-Hook needs to be hooked around rebar or an equivalent either before concrete is poured or inserted and hooked while concrete is still wet.
2.) The J-Hook anchor head should sit flush with the top of the concrete with no exposer of the hook shaft while still allowing the anchor head to swivel.
Strap & Split Bolt Installation Instructions:
1.) From under the home looking to the outside, pass the non-buckle end of the strap over the frame towards the outside of the home leaving the buckle end exposed on the inside of the frame.
2.) Wrap the non-buckle end of the strap back around the frame and slide it through the slot in the buckle end. (the strap has now completely wrapped the frame)
3.) Once again, slide the non-buckle end of the strap over the frame towards the outside of the home and pull tight.
4.) Insert the split bolt through the holes in the anchor closest to the frame while only exposing just enough threads on the outside of the anchor to install the nut. (Do not push the bolt all way into the anchor as the squared head on the bolt will prevent the bolt from turning in the anchor.)
5.) Slide the end of the strap through the split in the bolt and pull tight.
6.) Measure from the split bolt towards the end of the strap and at 12-15" cut off the excess.
7.) Push or pull the strap back through the split bolt until the end of the strap is flush with the split bolt.
8.) Turn the split bolt with a ratchet or wrench until the strap is tight. (DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN THE BOLT AS THIS COULD DAMAGE THE FRAME)
9.) Once the strap is tight, align the squared head of the split bolt with the square hole in the anchor. Tighten the nut until the squared end is completely inserted in the square hole of the anchor head.
