Place the post back in place and set the fastener part of the concrete anchor through the holes and into the concrete. After hammering in the fasteners to all holes of the post, place the bolt of the concrete anchor onto the fastener and tighten it down.
The concrete is 5 inch thick and strong (will hold anchors well). I'm planning on using a deadbolt spring-latch (like your everyday bathroom doorknob) so if there is alot of sway the latch my pop out of its hole. The wife is fine with me renting a hammer and breaking up the concrete.
Fences built on concrete with Titan Post Anchors - Deck Design Small or tall fences can be built on concrete slabs or retaining walls with beautiful results using the 4x4 or 6x6 Titan Post Anchor. See what others are doing.
Read about installing Chain Link Fence, Ornamental Metal Fence, Vinyl Fence, and Wood Fence on a concrete slab in a variety of ways from brackets to anchors, and hydraulic cement.
Solid Construction Masonry Anchors are designed to connect post flanges to concrete. Used only with posts that includes flanges, which is an alternative to mounting posts directly in holes or dirt. The galvanized Steel Fence Post Flange Masonry Anchors (4-Pack) offer finishes that resist corrosion ...
Another option I had thought of would be to anchor the fence posts to the edge of the blocks through the sides of the posts, like a railing of a deck. I could have it hang the post down 2 feet or so and sink four anchors or so in that way, but it seems like bolting to the top would be stronger. Not sure.
Sleeve anchors Best for medium-duty applications in concrete block. Length is measured from the washer to the end of the anchor. Sleeves pinch the side of the pilot hole and get tighter as the screw is driven into place. Toggle bolts Best for light to medium loads in hollow block.
Tighten the anchors' nuts with an adjustable wrench until the nuts butt against the hinges' plates and force the hinges flush against the block. Attach a driver bit to the hammer drill and set the drill to driver mode. Hoist the gate upright and align the fence's rails with the loose sides of the hinges.
Drill holes through the furring strips for the concrete sleeve anchors. One way to match up the holes on the furring strips with the holes in the cinder blocks is to slide the sleeve anchors into the holes, paint the nuts on the sleeve anchor bolts, then press the furring strips up against the nuts.
A concrete block, cement block, foundation block or concrete masonry unit (CMU), is a large rectangular block used primarily in the construction of walls. Concrete blocks are made from precast concrete, i.e. Portland cement, water, and aggregate.

Once you have your fence materials, you will need to snap a chalk line on your pad so that you can keep your fence posts straight and inline.
Types of Cinder Block Fasteners Expansion an expansion type anchor can be used in solid sections and mortar joints with great success. If used in the hollow section, the holding values obtained will depend on the amount of material left that the expansion anchor expands to.
The best way to drill a hole into concrete, concrete block, mortar and brick is to use a hammer drill. A standard drill will do OK in soft brick and mortar, but it’ll just frustrate you and burn out bits in harder materials.
If you are planning on attaching a fence to a block wall, you may want to consider using Tapcon brand concrete anchors. As with any anchoring project, it is important to keep safety in mind and follow instructions carefully.
Cinder block isn't dense enough to prevent the inevitable pull out forces the gate will create on the tapcons. For cinder block usage, tapcons work a lot better in shear than in pull-out. I would use the hilti toggle bolt if it will be in an open web, a lead shield if it is in a web and an expanding anchor if it is in a solid, poured cell.
