BULK / OEM ANCHORS
WALLCLAW LOCKED CLAMPING ACTION
The image below (left) shows the WallClaw anchor bending more than 90 degrees, which occurs if the wall (shown as two vertical lines) is not there.
When the wall is there and the screw is inserted, the anchor head on the front of the wall is drawn tight to the front face of the wall as the anchor tip and blade behind the wall rotate up against the back of the wall.
When the nail tip and blade behind the wall land on the wall they stop flat on the back face of the wall and apply considerable force against the back of the wall to clamp and secure the anchor to the wall from both the front and back of the wall.
The large flat surface area (shown inside dashed box below right) that sits on the wall provides a much larger bearing surface than typical wall anchors and increases WallClaw’s load bearing capacity in shear (down the face of the wall) by spreading out the load across a larger surface area.
