It is important that the anchors be driven at the same angle as the guy wires.

Insert the drive bar into the anchor body and drive the anchor into the ground

using a sledgehammer until only the top half of the loop or metal ring remains

above the ground. Place a bar or highlift jack through the loop or metal ring

and jack the anchor up about four inches to rotate the anchor into the load-lock


Failure to install and lock the anchor at the correct angle

will result in the anchor cable cutting through the soil

until the angles equalize, causing slack.
