What about it? - Not much to go by or answer.

Usually, the distance between them depends on the location and code in effect and use of the structure or loads. there are also requirements for the distance to the end of whatever you are holding down or stopping from sliding.

This must be a Haiku.

Distance between anchor bolts?
Have I asked a question?

Imagine you walk into a room where there are hundreds of people.... you say "distance between anchor bolts". Do you truly imagine ANYone will know what the heck you are talking about? Or do you think they will care? This forum is that room. If you have a QUESTION, please learn to speak English and ask it properly. We do not read minds, and only a few of our members will even attempt to decipher what the heck you're talking about. So good luck with that.... perhaps rephrasing might help?

Good one Daniel!

I hate razzing this guy, but I'm getting pretty tired of people doing this here.

You'll need to check your own local code, but for instance here, it's 6' max centers between bolts (hot-dipped galvanized minimum if going into ACQ treated plate) 18" max. from openings & corners, and at least 2 per wall.



As for the rest of you, carry on.............
