That is a good point! I'm satisfied with this for my application but it does assume a wedge angle. A contractor may make the wedge angle by any means including breaking thin timber along the grain, so some thin wedges could result. I think for Hilti to cover this properly, it would be good to see the wedging figure blown up a bit and including a max wedge penetration, that is excluded from the recommended load calculations. There may be a good market for a Hilti adhesive retaining cap. Thanks for your help today.
