Series II Soil Stabilization Anchor System

No Digging or Excavation.
No Soil Disturbance.
Anchor Load Tested to Capacity Desired.
Fast Installation.

Labor and time saving drive-type DUCKBILL® earth anchors are composed of corrosion resistant aluminum alloy to give the ultimate mechanical strength and extreme durability for a variety of soil stabilization applications. Our anchors offer a wide range of solutions for light to medium applications. Each solution can be customized to meet your specific needs and the installation process involves 3 simple steps: drive, load and set.

Combining the technology of the world’s leading drive-type anchor with the world’s leading wire and cable fastening company, Foresight Products introduces the SERIES II Soil Stabilization Anchor System. Guaranteed field installed anchor system holding capacity.

Plate with Stop Button: For this assembly the anchor is connected to a stainless steel cable which attaches to a UV protective plastic disc. The anchors, used as a tie down, are terminated with a hand crimping tool after load locking the anchor above the plate.

Wire Vise: The Wire Vise assembly includes aluminum plated with heat treated nickel components which are flush to fit the 1/8 in (3.2mm) stainless steel cable. Once secured to the cable, the Wire Vise only has movement one way and secures the plate to the mat.

Theft Deterrent

Secure any object to deter theft and prevent unwanted movement

DUCKBILL® Earth Anchors are used worldwide to secure items that can be easily stolen, moved or blown away. Additionally, the anchor system has one-man installation capabilities without the need for expensive digging equipment. Duckbill anchors are designed with a length of galvanized wire rope long enough to allow for movement for mowing or maintenance.

Tens of millions of dollars per year are reportedly due to theft. DUCKBILL Earth Anchors reduce theft and unwanted movement of objects like:

  • Tables
  • Benches
  • Grills
  • Trash Cans
  • Bicycles
  • Signs

How it Works: This patented labor and time saving device is 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 device into a perpendicular “anchor lock”  position in undisturbed soil. The result, superb holding capacities.
