I am looking at screwing a gate post into concrete. Can you advise what my options are? As I am not sure what is the best
method to handle the weight of the gate.
The post is about 4ft tall.
The gate is about 12ft long and rather heavy.(can barely lift it up a bit on my own but need 2 people to move it)
my research so far is that I should:
1 - use a bolt anchor (drill a hole, bang the bolt in and then tighten)

2 - use some epoxy (drill a hole, pour in the epoxy, add the bolt, let it set, then tighten)

3- Since I will be pouring the concrete to create a pad for the post to anchor to I was wondering if I could
place some sleaves in with the concrete and then when set just position the post and screw bolts in.
maybe something like this https://www.bunnings.co.nz/ramset-dynaset-drop-in-anchor-flanged-m10_p00886261
Can you advise?
