Concrete Fasteners Without A Molly

Concrete Fasteners Without A Molly

Concrete Molly Hack!

For those of you who find yourself installing something onto a concrete surface, to only find you do not have a molly to finish the job. 

Here is a quick and easy way to fasten something to concrete or mortar with out a molly.

All you need to do is :

  • Drill the hole into the concrete.
  • Cut the end off of a zip tie.
  • Place the cut off piece or pieces from the zip tie into the hole.  Fill the hole up with the plastic pieces and make them flush on the outside.
  • Then just screw in what ever it is you are anchoring into the concrete.

 As you tighten the screw or lag it will push the pieces of the zip tie into the edges of the hole, making a very good fastener.
