How to bolt down a gun safe



Video Transcript:
Now it is time to bolt the unit down.

I am a real big fan of this style of bolt. It's called an "Anchor-All" or bottom-expansion bolt. They work really well, I have been using them for fifteen years.

Now if you don't happen to have a hammer drill, you can use a standard drill with a concrete bit. It will just take you a whole lot longer to get it done.

So, let us go inside.

(Drilling noise)

Then of course you want to vacuum the concrete dust up. It makes a much cleaner job.

You want to pick up your bolt, add your washer on, then run your nut down on to the threads, until it is just to the top of the bolt itself. Go ahead and insert that into the hole.

After you have your bolt inserted. You want to go all the way down. Just give it a good rap with a hammer, and I have actually used an old bolt, so I do not have to be beating up the interior bottom.

Just give it a few good ones. (Hammering)

And then you are done. Do all four corners and you get maximum hold. At this point, you are finished.
