We used these model 40 anchors for the first time to secure metal poles that were supporting a cable grid and netting to keep waterfowl from landing on a small BMP Pond near an airport. Installation was simple and they locked right in place. The grid has only been up a few weeks but we are not seeing any slippage of the anchors. Ready for the next project!


We tried using the model 40 anchors for securing logs in a river when we did a river cleanup. They held till spring when the thaw caused flooding that broke the cables. We now use the model 68 and have had better luck.


Model 40 is sufficient for most small trees. I live in an area that can get high winds and have lost 2 trees that were blown over in high winds. The traditional wood tree stake just doesn't work. The duckbill anchor works best and is not as unsightly at the tree stake.
