DUCKBILL Earth Anchors are used worldwide to secure any object that can be stolen, moved or blown down.
DUCKBILL anchors, a patented labor and time saving device, work like a toggle bolt in soil. DUCKBILLS are driven into the ground (with no holes, no digging and no concrete), providing a safe and environmentally sensitive installation. An upward pull on the anchor tendon rotates the DUCKBILL into a perpendicular "anchor lock" position in undisturbed soil. The result: superb holding capacities. DUCKBILL anchor systems offer the most effective, lightweight and economical solutions to anchor your shed, picnic table or any other desired application, large or small.
Anchors are driven into the soil using a hammer and drive steel rod. As the anchor is being driven, it is actually compacting the soil around the anchor head.
To set the anchor in normal soil, wrap the wire rope around the drive steel or insert rod through loop in wire rope and pull upward a distance slightly longer than the length of the anchor body. The upward pull on the wire rope rotates the anchor into a perpendicular anchor locking position in undisturbed soil.
