"Stop stripping threads on quickbolts:"

Stick an all-thread rod coupling of various sizes (1/4 x 20, 3/8", 1/2", etc.) in your tool box. Use those to set quickbolts (stud anchors) instead of using the nut supplied with the anchor.
It works great. That way you don't destroy the threads on the anchor (causing you to start all over again), and you can use this as a stop to be sure you leave the right number of threads showing.
Also, if you did not know this, always drill your hole deep on a quickbolt, because you can stop the set whenever you want even if the hole is too deep.
