The mounts are easy as all get out to put in you just need to follow these steps:
1) Get your hands on a hammer drill with a 5/16th bit. 2) Put together both mounting bases on the ladder and place whole ladder assembly in water 3) Line up ladder (with mounting bases on it) on the concrete then mark your holes 4) Use your hammer drill with 5/16" bit to drill AT LEAST 2-1/2" into the concrete (key is to go down at least 2-1/2" or more). 5) Use compressed air and/or vacuum to clean holes out of debris. 6) Insert Alligator anchor and tap into concrete until flush 7) Use an impact drill with a 1/2" hex socket bit to drill anchor screws through mounting base and into the concrete (with anchor).
Make sure to hold down the mounting base as the anchor may pull up out of the concrete. This is ok, but keep good downward pressure on impact drill to ensure a good thread into concrete.
They work great. Much better than the typical ladder or rail socket in the concrete. Allows easier removal of the ladder or hand rail. The most difficult part was drilling anchor bolt holes. Do not use the plastic screw anchors. I used lead inserts which work very well and are not expensive.
Modified these for an above ground pool ladder. Worked awesome. Larger base than most allow for great mounting on my deck. Using some white PVC as sleeves. allowed to shrink the diameter of the hole to accept my thinner ladder pipes. Cut out the bottom to allow the ladder to slip through. And then some new longer stainless steel screws to secure the ladder to the mount. Worked out perfectly and was able to accomplish what other mounts couldn't.
