Economy Sand Bag Equipment
Anchors Recommended Use:
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 (available
in store). 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. Whatever you use for
the strapping it should cross over the tunnel ribbing for
safety's sake to help prevent a decrease in the tunnel
diameter. If bungees are used, a longer bungee can form a
loop that encircles the ribbing. If you use four bags on
each tunnel opening, the bungees or straps can be crossed
over the rib. 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.

Alternately, you can use water jugs instead of
sand or anything that is safe, soft and heavy.
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.
