Economy Sand Bag Equipment Anchors Recommended Use:Tunnel Anchors:
These bags will hold as much as 30lbs of wet sand but the useful life of the bags will be reduced if more than 15lbs of sand are used. For best results, put the sand in a plastic bag and then insert the plastic bag inside of the anchor bag. Tighten the draw string using the plastic slide clamp leaving about 1-2" of string between the bag opening and the plastic clamp. Pull the bag straps through the loop created by the string between the bag and the clamp. This will help reduce the stress on the bag to strap stitching. The bags can be connected using a bungee cord, rope, or a strap. The bags attached strap length can be adjusted to accommodate the length of the bungee cord or strap that you use to connect the bags to straddle the tunnel. A bungee cord 24" in length will work best. It is best to use bungee cords with large plastic hooks facing out away from the tunnel as the smaller metal hooked bungees may damage the tunnel loops especially if faced into the tunnel. Another method that works well is to use a belt or rope loop to connect the bags. Tying the straps together may reduce the life of the bags. It is best not to carry the bags by the straps especially if you do not pull the straps through the bags string loop.
Other Uses: The bags can be used to anchor other equipment such as chutes, tire jumps, wing jumps, teeters, ring easels etc. as well as canopy tent poles.
