Duckbill Earth Anchors are driven into the ground, using a drive rod and heavy hammer, compacting the earth as they drive downward,
until they reach the recommended depth. After removing drive rod, installer pulls up on cable. This planes or rotates the anchor into
load lock position, like a toggle bolt in undisturbed earth.

- Duckbill's patented star drive point drives straight into the ground and does not wander from its path. It will not penetrate
solid rock, but it will push stones and small rocks out of the way as it drives downward.
- Duckbills will not corrode or rust, and their cables are high strength galvanized steel. Their performance is substantiated by
independent engineering tests.
- Duckbill is a labor and time saving device.
- One man drives Duckbill with manual or hand-held power tools
- No digging
- No expensive machinery
- No crew of workers
- No special skills needed
- Duckbill is safer than conventional anchors because it leaves no rigid rods or stakes above ground to injure people or pets or
damage lawn care equipment.
- The federal government, states, cities, counties, parks and recreation areas, contractors, landscapers and homeowners throughout
the world are using Duckbills to anchor trees of all sizes.
||Heavy hammer and drive rod drive Duckbill to the recommended depth at the desired angle. One drive rod
drives hundreds of anchors.
||A jack hammer and power drive rod can be used to install larger Duckbills, especially in harder soils.
||To set anchor in normal soils, remove drive rod, insert rod through loop, or wrap guy line around rod, pull
cable upwards a distance slightly longer than the length of the anchor body. This rotates anchor into load lock position.
||To set larger anchors, a Handyman jack, come-along, hydraulic jack or post puller can be used.
||When anchoring with bulk Duckbills, tie rope, wire or cable to cable loop, then run it to the tree. Repeat
process with as many anchors as desired.
