Sammy X-Press XPKIT Install Tool. Now you can install the Sammy X-Press anchors from the floor with the Sammy XPKIT set. Now, right from the start, I want to warn you, the kit is expensive but please read on before you give up. The first time you bought Sammy Express anchors you were shocked at the price as well but now you buy them by the case. They save so much time and money and so will the XPKIT tool. Considering what you pay for a lift rental for a couple of days, not to mention the delivery charge as well as the safety factor, the tool ends up being free after a use. So here how it works.
The kit comse with just the fittings for a pole tool. The pole it self you supply, standard 3/4″ EMT. You can cut it to lenght or if you need a longer pole than, a coupling is included to join two pieces of EMT. The video runs through it very will. Simply attach the fittings to each end of the EMT and you the Sammy XKPIT is ready to roll. There are fittings to make one pole tool with a drill bit and one with the driver. Now your install process is pretty much like you would do with a standard XPIT tool, just on a pole. Drill your hole with the drill pole then switch to the driver pole, add your all thread to the Sammy Express anchor and install. The little arm on the driver will stop at the rib of the deck and the anchor will set. Again, the vidoe shows it really well. The install tool will work with both the standard and the swivel versison.
Anyone who has used the Sammy Exprss anchors realize what a great anchor it really is. Your installed cost versus using strut, beam clamps and miscellaneous hardware is much lower. Add the Sammy X-Press XPKIT pole tool set and save even more. Find the Sammy Express anchors and tool kits on our e-commerce site here.
