Anchoring The Window Bucks

The window and door bucks need to be anchored to the concrete so that they can provide a solid frame for the doors and windows. The best way to do this is to insert a long lag bolt through a the buck into the void where the concrete will be. When the concrete is poured, it envelops the lag bolt and creates a very solid connection.

Here I'm using a 3/8 x 6 galvanized lag bolt with a large washer. I've countersunk the hole so that the head of the bolt sits below the surface and won't interfere with the window installation.
