Using a Thread Extender is significantly quicker and less expensive than installing new epoxy anchor bolts or replacing the footing.
Light Pole Systems’ Thread Extenders are designed to lengthen anchor bolts that are too short to properly mount a light pole, yet still structurally sound. Sometimes anchor bolts are set to deep in concrete or they rust. If they rust, chip away concrete to expose useable thread, cut off excess anchor bolt, install the Thread Extenders, and install the light pole. If the bolt is simply too short, ensure all bolts are the same height with enough exposed thread, install the Thread Extenders, then install the light pole. There is no bolt circle adjustment. For bolt circle adjustment check out the Anchor Bolt Adapter.
- TE.75 Threads onto 3/4″ anchor bolts and has a 3/4″ stud and hardware.
- TE1 Threads onto 1″ anchor bolts and has a 1″ stud and hardware.
- TE1-.75 Threads onto 1″ anchor bolts and has a 3/4″ stud and hardware.
All Thread Extenders are sold as a set of 4 pieces. Purchase (1) TE for every affected light pole. All pictured hardware is included: (4) nuts and (12) washers.
The TE1-.75 is most commonly needed when 1″ anchor bolts are installed in place of 3/4″ bolts. The second most common use is on a LED retrofit project installing shorter than original poles that require smaller anchor bolts. These projects often require bolt pattern adjustment and use the ABA1-.75.
TE.75 & TE1
The TE.75 and TE1 are most commonly used when the existing anchor bolts are rusted or damaged above the concrete footing. Chip out concrete to expose useable threads, cut off excess anchor bolt, and install the Thread Extender. The next common use is when anchor bolt projection is too short.
