Bolt Buster – dewalt powerstud stainless wedge bolt – climbing and highline bolt break test

Wow. ½” dewalt power studs proved to be hard to break with our early setup. Tested in shear in concrete, we had the first one break the hanger at 48.88kn and the 2nd one didn’t break at 54.94kn and the last one we finally snapped at 60.92…. WITH A 30KN FIXE HANGER!!! If you’re working with solid rock, these were impressive. Please don’t bolt if you don’t need to and use titanium if near the ocean and never use plated steel bolts outside. With Bobby Hutton
