Hammers, Hangers and Bolts

A very full section over THREE pages, because bolting presents a lot of choices! Here you'll find the hardware for placing bolts; then various sizes and types of hangers for most occasions; and then the bolts which actually anchor the hangers to the rock. Finally you'll find some of our multi-item deals, BUT if you want to buy more significant numbers of anything, contact us directly by e-mail. We're happy to help!

Raumer M8 bolts 
£0.50

Raumer M8 bolts

Raumer steel M8 bolts. For use with Raumer Minox, Ring and Wing hangers, and other similar hangers from other companies such as Kong. Comes complete with washer to hold it in place.
Raumer Stainless Hang Fix M8L 
£1.92

Raumer Stainless Hang Fix M8L

Stainless (316L) caving anchor of the 'through bolt' variety, M8 x 78 Two expanding collars increase security, making it very suitable for caving in terms of bolting up and also setting anchors for pitches - but not for climbing anchors to take big leader falls. Requires a drill, or Rocpec type hand drill, to place it. Best bit is probably the Hilti four tip; 120mm long is just right and avoids over drilling - which wastes battery life Strength 20 - 22Kn depending upon direction of load.
Raumer Hang Fix M8XL 
£2.10

Raumer Hang Fix M8XL

Stainless (316L) caving anchor of the 'through bolt' variety, M8 x 100 Two expanding collars increase security, making it very suitable for caving in terms of bolting up and also setting anchors for pitches - but NOT for climbing anchors to take big leader falls. The M8XL is better at coping with poor rock tham the M8L. Requires a drill, or Rocpec type hand drill, to place it. Best bit is probably the Hilti four tip; 120mm long is just right and avoids over drilling - which wastes battery life Strength 20 - 22Kn depending upon direction of load.
Spit' M8 self drill rock anchor 
£1.55

Spit' M8 self drill rock anchor

Spit' M8 self drill rock anchor. Classic two part anchor used for setting belays in rock, using an anchor driver and hammer (also available). Still a useful combination of lightness and strength (assuming a good placement in good rock!) with no need of a drill. Prospecting, remote expeditions, beyond sumps...there is still a place for these in every exploratory caver's inventory. Expeditions should contact us for significant discounts.
Raumer Rainox anchor 
£1.20

Raumer Rainox anchor

Like a spit (same dimension), but stainless and not self drilling. Advantages? A couple. Number 1: place this, and it should last a lot longer than a spit, and it will also work for subsequent parties using the traditional and widely used 'bolt and hanger' arrangement. Number 2: if you are placing your hangers by drill, this anchor does not require that the holes be finished off by hand to flatten off the end of the hole - just drill, and tap in. Number 3: the wedge and anchor are joined - you can't drop half of the arrangement down the pitch by mistake (although you can still lose the whole lot, if you like) NOTE: to use this, you need also the 'Striker'(article Rm131) to place the bolt. See the relevant description to see why it's needed - but don't worry, this kit is pretty cheap and reusable as well. NOTE AGAIN: you can place this by hand, but you'll want a Rocpec or similar to make the hole. Phil Rowsell - who does a lot of bolting - suggests the Hilti four tip bit for most...
Raumer Rainox striker 
£1.50

Raumer Rainox striker

Raumer Rainox Striker. Use with the Rainox anchor (article Rm130). When the hole is drilled, screw this small steel item into the anchor, place the anchor in the hole, and then the Striker forms the striking surface. Hit it squarely with your hammer (as with all the spits you've ever placed)and this will expand the cone in the end, and fix the anchor in place. Remove Striker, screw in bolt with hanger, off you go. NOTE: buy at least two if your rigging relies on this - and check that the threads are protected in transit.

£3.78

Petzl Vrillee hanger and bolt

An alloy twist anchor, with bolt, for use with Spits and Rainox.. A lightweight hanger for use where reducing load is the greatest consideration.

Petzl Coudee hanger and bolt 
£3.40

Petzl Coudee hanger and bolt

A simple bend alloy anchor, with bolt, for use with Spits and Rainox. A lightweight hanger for use where reducing load is the greatest consideration.

Raumer Wing hanger 
£2.40
