    I haven't watched the video, but you'll have a better chance of getting a good answer if you ask a very specific question, for example, "The video said to do 'x'. I'm not sure how to do 'x' because my situation is different from that in the video because of 'y'" – FreeMan Jan 30 '20 at 14:39
  • Although I did upvote, the question was how to secure the top plate to concrete. But your advice would probably have gotten an answer much faster. – Ed Beal Jan 30 '20 at 14:58

A concrete wall having outside noise issues? Hummm I do think I have heard of that problem. If you want to isolate the wall from the living space that may work but will make the room smaller.

To anchor into concrete you will usually need to drill the plate and extend the hole into the concrete and use a tapcon or concrete screw. There are other methods but many are not easily removed and you may not be happy with the results and want to reclaim the space.

  • And you'll need an SDS drill to make holes in concrete. An ordinary hammer drill (especially a cordless drill) will takes ages, if it manages it at all. – Robin Bennett Jan 30 '20 at 15:17
  • @Robin Bennett I use a dewalt 20v 1/2” all the time for small anchors like Tapcon screws and 1/4” expanding anchors all the time. Larger sizes I agree and have a Hilti for larger holes but for smaller holes a hammer drill combo works ok. – Ed Beal Jan 30 '20 at 16:50
  • Except that a sound-proof wall shouldn't be rigidly connected to the concrete. It needs isoliation. – isherwood Jan 30 '20 at 17:43
  • I did not say to connect it to the wall I said to isolate to me means not in contact and answered how to anchor in concrete. – Ed Beal Jan 30 '20 at 19:22
