Tapcon from ITW Buildex is the original masonry fastening system, featuring a masonry anchor that cuts threads into concrete, brick or hollow block. Installation is fast: Simply drill a hole and drive an anchor. It is available in 3/16-inch and ¼-inch diameters and in lengths of 1¼ inches to 6-inches. Tapcon replaces small-diameter expansion anchors, plugs and screws in light- to medium-duty applications. There's no need to pre-spot holes, and Tapcon fasteners do not require any inserts. Circle

"We use the Tapcon fastener to adhere the buck — pressure treated 2×6s that are installed within the masonry opening to create a flange. Tapcon is fairly easy to install, and it is a good fastening system."
