Concrete floor anchor question

Question, I've got sleeved anchors (smaller diameter so won't work) already placed in my garage floor. These Titans that come with the No-Mar are removable, but I've a hunch that you cannot reuse the same bolt holes so I'm doubting these will work for me as the bolt hole in concrete would be a one time use thing. Make sense?
4 TITEN HD® Heavy Duty Screw Anchors for Concrete and Masonry.

I need to remove the changer and store it in the corner, but when in use I want to mount it in the center of floor for 360 degree use.
Any knowledgeable wrenches that can advise?

From what I read the TITENs cut their own threads in the concrete as you run them in, kinda like a tapcon.
I think what you are wanting is a female threaded anchor..

There are several different kinds, one you set in epoxy, others wedge themselves in place. I doubt a plastic anchor would be heavy enough but it might, about what size are the TITEN's?

What you need is called a Flush Mount Anchor, anchor with threads stays in the floor.

This is the trick! Put a bugle head machine screw back in them when the tire changer is not there, it will keep crap out of the anchor and protect the threads.

What the hell is a bugle head machine screw? I've used hex head, socket, pan, cheese, button, flat, round and probably a few more... is it a regional slang thing? Old slang? (please let it be this, I need to feel young!)

I would use the ones that glue (Epoxy) into the concrete. GH

Me 2!

As a youngster, fillister headed screws were a delight to the eyes.

Button head screws to fill the unused holes is a good idea or any low profile headed jobby.

I think you're needing a drop anchor, get em at HD or Lowe's.

Sorry! Had my wood and metal fasteners mixing together in my head.

A "bugle head" is a name for a flat head wood screw, similar to countersunk, but there is a smooth progression from the shank to the angle of the head, similar to the bell of a bugle.

Just got a No-Mar myself, but it did not come with the anchors. Will I be able to just use my electric drill (AC powered) or should I acquire a hammer drill to bore the holes into the concrete?

U can use a standard drill if the hole is not to large in diameter.
Just make sure to use a good concrete drill, and take your time.
Also pull he drill out of the hole to remove the debris build up.

Dont over work the motor.

Thanks!

Not too worried about the actual drill motor, it's a 34 year old Milwaukee. It has outlasted 2 Makitas, 1 B&D and 1 DeWalt. They def don't make them like it anymore, lol.

And don't push too hard or it might walk sideways and give you an oblong hole.

Also, start small and progressively larger until you get to the size you need.
