LIFTING BODY/CLUTCH MAINTENANCE


Meadow Burke recommends that users of the DogBone System schedule regular inspections to determine
the safe usability of the lifting units. If any factor is present that may affect or compromise the safety
performance of the unit, such as excess wear, overloading, misuse, alteration, application of heat, etc., the
unit must be serviced or permanently removed from service. Under no circumstance should the unit be
modified, heated, welded or filed.
Do not attempt to straighten a bent eye link. Bent eye links should be replaced with a new eye link and new
pivot pin. Replacement parts are available through your nearest Meadow Burke office.

ASSEMBLING THE DOGBONE PLASTIC RECESS


FORMER AND ANCHOR
Recess formers and anchors can easily be assembled.
Simply squeeze the recess former across the flat surface
to open the recess former in a clamshell effect. Insert the
anchor into the opening and release the pressure on the
recess former. This allows the recess former to close
around the head of the anchor and securely hold it in
place.

DOGBONE PLASTIC RECESS FORMER STRIPPING


Once the form has been removed to expose the recess
former, insert two small rods or two screw drivers into the
two holes provided in the recess former. A scissoring
action with the two implements will lift one side of the
recess former. Grasp the lifted side of the recess former
and pull the unit out of the concrete.

ASSEMBLING THE DOGBONE STEEL RECESS


FORMER AND ANCHOR
Begin the assembly by placing a steel recess former grommet around the shaft of the anchor. Slide the grommet up
against the head of the anchor and insert the anchor into
the bottom of the steel recess former. Make certain that the
grommet seals the hole in the recess former.

SETTING THE ANCHOR/RECESS


FORMER ASSEMBLY
Run the recess former bolt through a properly placed drilled hole in the form. Draw
the recess former bolt tight to the form with
a free-running wing nut. The exposed end
of the anchor can be tied to the rebar mat
or supported by a rebar support.

LIFTING CLUTCH INSTALLATION


Anchor attachment Turn the lifting clutch upside down, positioned and centered over the head of the anchor.
Drop the lifting clutch down into the void formed by the recess former. Rotate the lifting unit around the head
of the anchor until the unit contacts the surface of the concrete. Installation is complete, ready to lift.

Bail positioning Always position


the lifting cable directly over the
lifting clutch to avoid alignment

MB DOGBONE ANCHORS USED IN THIN WALL SECTIONS


Care must be taken when locating anchors in thin wall sections. Improper installation and/or misalignment
can seriously reduce the safe working load of the anchor.
Anchors must be positioned on the centerline of the panel.
Use rebar supports, spacers or tie the anchor to the rebar mat to make certain of proper positioning.

This sketch shows proper positioning of the anchor


on the centerline of the panel. This allows the full
wall thickness to be used in the safe working load
selection.

This sketch shows a misaligned, improperly positioned anchor. The actual edge distance (Te) is
considerably reduced so there must be a corresponding reduction in the safe working load of the
anchor.

Dog Bone

All DB-52 DogBone Anchors are manufactured from high quality, high strength steel.
They are continually tested at a specified sampling rate during production and each
anchor head is clearly marked with its safe working load.
The accompanying table shows standard anchor sizes and safe working loads in various concrete strengths. Note that in some cases the anchor does not reach full capacity in the lower strength concretes. This is an important consideration when selecting
the proper anchor application. In general, concrete strengths of 2,100 psi to 3,500 psi
are necessary to develop stated anchor safe working loads. The safe working loads
displayed in the table applies for any directional loading. Loading on the anchor can be
perpendicular, horizontal or any angle in between.

(6250) DB-52 DOGBONE ANCHOR EDGE LIFT APPLICATIONS


In edge lift applications the DogBone Anchor must be used in combination with two properly installed shear bars. The shear bars
(anchor and cup) transfer a portion of the shear stress back into the
anchor and into the concrete panel. Note: in this application the
sling angle must be perpendicular to the surface of the concrete.

MULTIPLE MB DOGBONE ANCHORS TENSILE CAPACITIES IN THIN WALL SECTIONS


When multiple anchors are placed in a thin wall panel, caution must be exercised to prevent the anchor shear
cone planes from overlapping. If overlapping is unavoidable, the anchor safe working load must be reduced.
If a spacing of six times the length of the anchor, or more, is maintained the anchor shear cones will not overlap and maximum tensile capacities can be achieved. Reference the following table.

All safe working loads shown in this section are based on 4,500 psi strength concrete. For use in lower

DB-53 MB DOGBONE EYE ANCHOR


1-Ton, 2-Ton, 4-Ton, 8-Ton, and 16-Ton in Edge Lift Applications

The DB-53 DogBone Eye Anchor is used in combination with a DB-60 DogBone Rebar Reinforcing
Pin. This combination allows tension loads to be distributed deeply into the concrete element and
produce high safe working loads in thin wall sections.
DogBone Eye Anchors must be installed properly, centered and plumb to avoid drastic reduction of
safe working load.

The DB-31 DogBone Shear Bar Anchor and DB-33 DogBone Shear Bar Cup are used in conjunction with the DB-52 DogBone Anchor when performing an edge lift. Without the shear bars,
the lifting stress may be applied to the concrete above the anchor and cause concrete spalling.
The properly installed shear bars transfer the lifting stress back into the anchor and the lower
concrete, thus preventing the spalling.
