A confidence inspiring lump of metal
Simple but sturdy. Difficult to see how a thief would get through this anchor without heavy weight tools and a lot of effort. Excellent price/value compared with competing products. Takes a while to install, due to the amount of drilling (16mm drill bit required), but worth the effort for the peace of mind.

Only drawback is that it needs 16mm holes.
Now that's a big drill bit but of course that means it's more securely fixed to whatever in the end.

fiddly to use but solid once installed
Make sure the holes dont oversize or the bolts won't grip. Use a depth guage before you try a bolt in. The bolts are almost as long as a standard housebrick so there is a real risk of daylighting out the other side. And be careful the bolts dont disassemble when you install them onto the anchor plate. Lastly, use a blob of epoxy glue to hold the ball bearings into the hex. Hammer them hard before the glue sets.
Otherwise dead easy to use :-)

Good product, poor fixings
The anchor is of undoubted quality, nicely heavy duty. Unfortunately the fixings it came with were very poor, the sleeves fell apart before beign placed in the holes and needed significant TLC before I could get the bolts to bite to them. An easy job, extended by a good half hours faffing with the fixings, not good.
The need for a 16mm drill should be noted, they aren't in everyones usual stock of tools :o)
