Guardian Fall Protection Bull Ring Anchor Product Change Notice

In order to accommodate a wider range of fastener options, Guardian Fall Protection increased the diameter of the top two mounting holes on the Bull Ring Anchor part #00484 (see below) to .281" (9/32"). The increased diameter will allow permitted screws or nails to be used for installation as needed. Prior to this update, only nails were permitted for use in these holes.

All Bull Ring anchors, both prior to, and since this update, were shipped with correctly sized fasteners. It has come to our attention that in certain instances when updated Bull Ring Anchors are reused after the initial installation, aftermarket nails with a slightly smaller head diameter have been used, causing them to countersink into the holes.
