Default Asphalt Screws for Canopy

Any suggestions on what kind of screws to use to secure an EZ-up or carport to a parking lot?

I know certain grades have no strength laterally (snapping point).

Thanks in advance!

Greg

I'm thinking Red Heads.


You can screw a eye to the top of them.

If you are going into asphalt you will want something with a larger spread but these should give you an ideal of your options. Tarmac /asphalt crumbles easy the older it is. Are you looking for a long term or temporary fixture?

If you Don't want a bolt sticking up when you take the unit down then look at wedge anchors that you actually screw the eye bolt into.

Then the second photo will do exactly what you need. You can buy a tube of DAP blacktop repair to fill the holes with being they are flush with the ground. Although being asphalt you can just hammer the first ones all the way in and then use a filler.

Wouldn't you need permission to go drilling into the asphalt though?

Not sure I have a real answer. Are you going into asphalt or concrete? Not sure how you are loading these either (pulling or lateral)...

The expansion anchor shown (Redheads) are for concrete and could take lateral load. I don't think they would work well in asphalt.

If you are going into asphalt, who's is it? I don't know many people who would let you put a hole in their pavement. I also am not familar with anchors into asphalt. (Sorry, I deal with concrete). I have seen some large screw anchors (soil anchors?). They look like those screw anchors for dog chains. Maybe?

That probably doesn't help much.

Oh, we were writing at the same time...I would use buckets filled with water or concrete for hold down. You just tie them to your canopy. I think you would have people freaking out if put any holes in the pavement at a comp. At least around here..I have heard specifically not to.

You may have to go with the traditional leg weights.

For asphalt we use 3 1/2" wood nails. Just hammer them in 3/4 of the way then bend the remaining over to the ground. When removed you cant tell they were there. 4 nails takes up alot less room in the trailer that 4 buckets. This has worked well for us in the past.

the redheads are for solid concrete....

Most places will NOT allow you to make holes in asphalt. Once a hole is there, it goes to pieces rapidly.... I would use the buckets with water. Stack the buckets, and then fill with water when you get there. Use the buckets if you need to just to carry stuff in if you don't want to stack them and "take" up room.

5 gallon pails filled with water and rachet straps is what works well.
Put covers on your buckets to keep folks from pitching cigarette butts into the water.

Tapcon screw are what some folks use but not me.

We use these. You can screw them in with a regular cordless drill, and when you remove them, they don't leave any marks.
