Simpson Strong-Tie Titen Turbo™ Concrete and Masonry Screw Anchor

Simpson Strong-Tie Company

The Titen Turbo screw anchor features an innovative Torque Reduction Channel to trap drilling dust where it can’t obstruct thread action, significantly reducing binding, stripping, and snapping without compromising strength. The patented reverse thread design enables smooth driving with less torque while providing superior holding power. The Torque Reduction Channel also allows more space for dust to help prevent anchors from bottoming out in smaller-diameter screw holes. The Titen Turbo screw anchors feature a serrated leading edge to cut into concrete or masonry, and a pointed tip for fast, easy installation in wood-to-concrete and wood-to-wood anchoring applications.

Key Features

  • Patented Torque Reduction Channel that displaces dust where it can’t obstruct the thread action, reducing the likelihood of binding in the hole.
  • Available with either a hex head or, for a flush profile, a 6-lobe-drive countersunk flat head or trim head.
  • 6-lobe drive provides positive bit engagement resulting in easy installations and long bit life.
  • 6-lobe bit included in packaging for countersunk flat head and trim-head version.
  • Superior tension load performance.
  • Matched-tolerance bit not required; use a standard ANSI drill bit for installation.
  • Serrated screw point for easier starts when fastening wood.
  • Designed for installation with an impact driver or cordless drill. Installation using the Titen Turbo Installation Tool is recommended.
  • Use in dry interior environments only.
  • Code listed in accordance with ICC-ES AC193 for uncracked concrete and ICC-ES AC106 for masonry applications without cleaning dust from predrilled holes.


  • Electrical boxes, conduit, switch boxes, light fixtures, windows, thresholds, basement furring strips, shelf mounting to concrete/CMU, handrails

Product Includes

  • 6-lobe bit included in packaging for flat-head and trim-head versions. 100-count flat-head and trim-head quantities include (1) bit. 1,000-count flat-head and trim-head quantities include (2) bits.
  • Retail packages of 8-count and 25-count do not include a drive-bit.


  • Carbon steel


  • Zinc plated with a baked-on ceramic coating


  1. Drill a hole in the base material using the appropriate diameter carbide drill bit as specified in the table. Drill the hole to the specified embedment depth plus 1/2" to allow the thread tapping dust to settle. While not required, dust may be cleaned from a drilled hole using compressed air prior to screw installation for best results.
  2. Position fixture, insert screw and tighten using drill and Titen Turbo screw installation tool fitted with a hex socket or 6-lobe bit socket.


  • Industry studies show that hardened fasteners can experience performance problems in wet or corrosive environments. Steps must be taken to prevent inadvertent sustained loads above the listed allowable loads. Overtightening and bending moments can initiate cracks detrimental to the hardened screw’s performance. Use the Simpson Strong-Tie Titen installation tool kit as it has a bit that is designed to reduce the potential for overtightening the screw.
  • Oversized holes in the base material will reduce or eliminate the mechanical interlock of the threads with the base material and will reduce the anchor’s load capacity.
  • Installation of concrete screw generally is influenced by many factors such as but not limited to, concrete compressive strength, type of aggregate, installation location, installation direction and tools used for installation
