Ground anchors to fix down outdoor play equipment and outdoor gym equipment



Outdoor play equipment and outdoor gym equipment, especially swing sets, must be fixed down, in case they tip over.

The standard Erdanker range of ground anchors is ideal for permanent installations, the JF range is ideal for temporary installations. Our low profile, safety anchors are suitable for both temporary and permanent installations especially in safety critical situations.


Fixing a swing with our low cost Erdanker ground anchors

The ground anchors are hammered in, close to the swing, then a bracket is used to fix the anchor to the swing, generally a slotted bracket is simpler (such as a D type or B type) as it allows the distance between the swing and anchor to be adjusted.
