Concrete Detent Anchor


DBI-SALA, a Capital Safety brand, introduces the concrete detent anchor, a simple and safe solution that allows users to connect and disconnect from an anchorage with the push of a button.

    The concrete detent anchor consists of two parts: a socket that is permanently installed in concrete and a removable detent pin with attached connection ring that is placed into the socket to form a secure, fall-arrest-rated 5,000-pound anchor point. Multiple sockets can be set into a concrete floor, wall or ceiling to provide a variety of anchor points, and the detent pin can be quickly and easily moved from socket to socket, keeping productivity high. With the detent pin weighing in at less than one pound, the concrete detent anchor may be the most lightweight and portable anchor option for concrete construction and maintenance.

    “Most concrete construction sites require a number of different anchorage points for personal fall arrest systems,” said Tim Maroushek, product manager for systems and anchors with Capital Safety. “Capital Safety developed the concrete detent anchor to be used not only during construction, but also for ongoing maintenance and inspection, making it an ideal end-to-end solution.”

    Detent push-button operation makes anchor installation and removal simple. The user holds down the button while inserting the pin into a socket preset in concrete. Releasing the button locks the pin into place, securing the anchorage. To disconnect, simply push the button and the pin will be released from the socket. When a socket is not in use, a cap covers the recess, ensuring building aesthetics are not compromised.

Shock absorbing lanyards and self retracting lifelines can be connected to the forged connection ring on the detent pin. For added functionality, two anchors can be used as the endpoints for a horizontal lifeline system.

The concrete detent anchor is constructed of rugged, corrosion-resistant stainless steel. The anchor meets or exceeds all applicable industry standards including OHSA and ANSI.
