PSATG PLASTIC SCREW ANCHOR

AUTHORIZED SIMPSON STRONG-TIE DISTRIBUTOR

The PSATG is a plastic screw anchor that brings an innovative highperformance design to a broad range of applications and substrates, such as fastening bathroom fixtures, window treatments, picture framing and shelving.

The PSATG features “triple-grip” technology with claws on the neck that hold the anchor stationary while inserting the screw. Two expandable wings also provide gripping power, fastening tightly behind the wall for maximum holding power.
