Secure your Bench or Table with Strong Ties and Expansion Bolts with Shear Nuts
This simple and widely used security ground anchor will make life difficult for would-be thieves and mischievous youths by anchoring your outdoor furniture with these Simson Strong Ties and Expansion Bolts with Shear Nuts also known as security nuts. The outer section of the shear nuts will break away from the inner part once tight, leaving nothing for spanners or sockets to grip. The sloping conical shape of what remains after the nut has sheared off even makes it difficult to grip with other gripping tools, as they tend to slid off the sloping sides when tightened. All Ground Anchor components are made from rust resistant steel and once secured in place are extremely difficult to remove.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Fix your ground anchors with the standard nuts supplied till fully tightened. Then remove all the ordinary nuts and replace with the shear nuts. If the shear nuts are used first, they may shear off before the expansion bolts are properly expanded in the concrete or flag which would leave the job half done. The same is true for the bolts going through the bench legs.
And if you are ordering this product for a bench you already own, please remember to tell us in the ‘order notes’ area when proceeding to checkout, what thickness your bench legs are so we can supply the right length of bolts for the legs.
