Economy Sand Bag Equipment Anchors Recommended Use:
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
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
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.
Other Uses: The bags can be used to anchor other equipment such as chutes, tire jumps, wing jumps, teeters, ring easels, soccer goals, etc. as well as canopy tent poles.
