After removing a couple inches of packed gravel, easily screwed into packed soil with help of rebar in eye. Would be 5 stars if it came with 4 eye screws and instructions. After attaching wire cable, screwed down anchor eye another couple of inches to make tight. Added extra clamp and Liquid Tape to tame frayed ends. Building inspector said looks good.
When I couldn't find the anchors at the store, a very helpful associate logged on to Home Depot online and showed me several options. We discussed the best product for what I needed and ordered it right there. It took only 4 days to arrive and I received a text message telling me that I could pick it up. I used the anchors to secure my bean poles in the garden. I believe I can trust them to hold the poles in place through the season and in the fall I'll be able to simply remove them just as easily as they went in.
Pros: Multi Use, Sturdy, Easy to Install, Great Value, Functional, Well Made, customer service
Was exactly what I needed to meet the County Code for anchoring my 10x16 Shed. Was easy to install and had all four corners installed and strapped down within about an hour and half. This was much easier than I thought since the shed had already been installed on 6" of crushed stone.
Pros: Easy to Install, Great Value, Functional, High Quality, Great Detail
I am using these anchors to hold an offset umbrella base. They have worked perfectly, even in high winds! Product was great to use. I did have to bend the bottom of one of the spirals down a little in order to get it to dig down into the ground, but that was easy to do and then they went in pretty easy.
A little concerned with the small cable size and the compression retainer system for the cables so will add some additional connections to ensure the shed is adequately secured for a hurricane condition.
Used anchors to allow earthquake strapping of propane tank. Anchors install as easily as expected. Plan to dig small hole first, and then drip water into hole for about 20-30 minutes to facilitate anchor installation. Short pipe or small crowbar will make the installation easier towards the end. Included cables appear sturdy, and the cable clamps are standard. The actual auger plate is about 2 inches across. I would have preferred if it were larger.
These 4 anchors will hold my shed in it's place if another hurricane like Sandy comes my way. I wish I would have used these anchors before the storm, I wouldn't have had to move a 15' x 10' shed 40 feet back to it's original spot after it floated around my back yard. These heavy duty anchors dig deep into the ground quickly and easily to hold down each corner of my shed. This a great value and I highly recommend this product.

These auger type earth anchors are not 30in as specified; they are actually only 27 inches from end to end (from tip to top of the eye loop). The auger blade is about 3 inches from the tip; so, if you drive them all the way in so that the eye loop is just under the surface of the ground, you'll have 24 inches worth of pull-out strength for the particular soil they are installed in.
The "heavy duty powder coated steel construction [that] will not rust" does not cover the inside top of the eye loop; so, it will rust immediately in that area.
Though quality is not very consistent from piece to piece, it appears to be a decent, low-cost set for the price - but it will not produce the implied 30inches worth of pull-out strength.
I had no problem at all installing this product. It was used to guy a 32ft vertical pole. Had to move the anchor several times in order to find the right spot in the soil. Depending on your soil, It's pretty easy hitting rocks or tree roots when installing the anchors. Overall I'm very pleased with my selection and would definitely purchase this product again.
As others have written, these stakes are heavy duty. There were no problems driving/screwing them into the rocky Massachusetts soil once a pilot hole was punched into the soil using a long iron bar and 3-pound sledge. Used these to help anchor a garden shed with vinyl-covered steel cables purchased separately.
I used these shelter Auger Anchors to connect guy wires from a ham radio antenna. To make the install a bit easier I used a 3/8" masonary bit on a 2 foot extension to drill a pilot hole in the ground prior to installation. This made the installation a breeze.
Only thing I could have asked for was stronger and longer wire to attach to my shed. I ended up cutting thicker and longer wire to attach to the anchors. The anchors took some time and effort to get into the ground but I hope they are just as hard to pull out.
Product is definitely worth it but I would suggest others also get the larger/longer wire if needed.
