Ground anchors for fixing almost anything to the ground, without concrete

Our range of spiral ground anchors and brackets offers probably the best available system for securing outdoor products directly to the ground, no concrete or  special tools are needed. The anchors are re-usable, very straight forward and quick to install or remove.

With 4 diameters, 4 styles, many length options and a large range of brackets, there is a solution for almost any situation. When the anchors are hammered, they automatically rotate, cutting a highly accurate thread in the ground - hence their high holding power.

Fitting is quick and simple, standard Erdanker type illustrated below.

Hammering an anchor into the ground

Hammer the anchor in, it will automatically rotate, cutting a neat thread in the ground.

Anchor hammered to gound level

Hammer down to ground level then fit the bracket.

Anchor hammered in, bracket fitted - job done!

The structure is secure. The bracket prevents rotation and unwinding.

Removing an anchor, if required

If removal is required, simply unbolt the bracket and unwind the anchor.


For long life, all anchors are hardened, enabling them to cope with conditions that most other anchors cannot handle; grass, hard compacted ground, ground with large stones, tarmac, buried bricks, chalk, clay etc. can generally be penetrated with ease. products are high quality and are made in factories in Germany or the UK.

Products marked In stock icon are dispatched the same day (or the next day if the order is received too late). Ordering is quick and simple, no registration needed, no passwords, no fuss. We take all the normal credit and debit cards.
