MOUNTING YOUR HOLDS DIRECTLY TO MASONRY

Using a hammer drill and 3/16” Tapcon bit, locate and drill the first hole.
Blow the hole clean or draw dust out of hole using the drill with an in-and-out motion.
If the screw starts to bind, STOP! Back the screw out.
Clean the hole properly, confirm depth of hole is appropriate for the length of screw being used.
