Mr. Hands Posted August 19, 2010 Share Posted August 19, 2010 Why would you replace an anchor with a crap set up like that. USE A FUCKING HANGER!!!! Yeah, yeah yeah. I have a barrel of stainless Fixes in the basement. Maybe 2 barrels. I have no problem leaving hangers behind.....other places. I've recently put in and left 358 of them, the big 1/2 diameter ones. Stainless. But that was where they can be expected to be left unmolested for a while and on ew routes. Not at this location as these are established routes and there is no need. In fact I did put in a single set of the Stainless Fixe chain anchors here that have the hanger integrated into them, and have been waiting to see how long they stay there. CC.com poster Lodestone was able to get one of the bolts pulled out with that 4' crowbar and we reused the hole. The other one snapped, but he had it loose. It was the first time I've heard of a 3/8 being reused. Greg Barnes of the APCA says he gave up on being able to reuse a 3/8 hole. We're at about 2 months they've been there I think and they have not been molested .....yet. I Loctited them down, but that's no guarantee they'll be there tomorrow when someone pulls them for their project elsewhere. I go look to see if they are still there everytime I'm in the vicinity and have been amazed that they have lasted this long. The chains are plenty strong, that's a 1/2" diameter bolt, it's bigger and stronger than what was traditionally utilized up there since @ 1980 (3/8 x 3 studs and steel chain)- and chain is used because it tends to be left alone. However, if you would like to donate the hardware or the money to see how long until your shiny new hangers last till some chump yanks them for a project he's working elsewhere, step up. Sad, but from what I've seen they have about a 15 min life expectancy from when you first turn your head and some douche with a wrench shows up I'd say. Only in Portland would you claim to have a consistent problem with stealing hangers.... WTF IS UP WITH YOU GUYS!!!! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
