Shield Anchor Size Chart
It can be difficult sometimes to figure out which size bolts your going to need to use with shield anchors as they vary in lengths across the range.
General rule of thumb is to use a bolt that is the length of the shield anchor plus the thickness of the material your fastening down.
Ie fixing a 5mm bracket into a 10mm shield anchor. Well the 10mm shield anchor is 60mm in length, plus the 5mm = 65mm length bolt.
Shield anchors are also very commonly referred to as Loxin bolts or Loxins. This is a brand specific name.
