Economy Sand Bag Equipment Anchors Recommended Use:

Tunnel Anchors:

These bags will hold as much as 35lbs of sand. Using the bags with 20-25lbs of sand will provide the best results and the most durability. The bags also perform best if the sand is placed in a plastic bag which is inserted 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. Bungee cords of either 12-14" or 24-36" will work well. If a strap is used, it should have a release mechanism so that the bags can be carried separately with ease. If bungees are used, it is best that they have 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. It is best not to carry the bags by the straps especially if you do not pull the straps through the bags string loop. When used as a tunnel anchor the handles will be approximately 20" apart when snugged up against the tunnel. The use of wet sand will increase the weight of the bags but will also provide less cushion upon impact.
