The compressed leg 2X-HOOK™ has been tested and designed to withstand over 200-lbf, in tension or compression, at maximum allowed offset (ACI 530 188.8.131.52.5.4) of 1-1/4” (disengagement of the pintle from the veneer anchor). These results exceed BIA recommendations and the capabilities of standard “round wire” hooks or pintles by over 100%!
The L-shaped plate section has numerous ribs for added strength and 9/32" holes for connecting screws.
The eyelets allow 2X-HOOK™ (pintle) insertion (1 1/4" maximum allowable eccentricity) and are sized to prevent in-and-out movement beyond allowable tolerances.
For concrete, CMU or brick backup, use theHB-5213.
Formerly called the HB-200/DA-213 or HB-200 Adjustable Veneer Anchor
NOTE:2X-HOOK™ CAN BE INSTALLED WITH LEGS POINTINGUP OR DOWN.
The embedded portion of the 2X-Hook is 3/16”DIA round wire, satisfying the code requirement that the mortar bed thickness (typically 3/8”) must be twice the diameter of the wire.

Legs fabricated to accommodate up to 6" thick insulation and/or wallboard combination (state thickness when ordering)
Also available:HB-200-X: features three pronged punch-outs that project from the back of the anchor. The prongs prevent positive wind-loads from crushing the wallboard by transferring these loads to the back of the stud.
