Save Time and Money
Simplify your projects by using the Liberty Hardware Vortex Mailbox Ground Anchor, which ensures a more efficient installation compatible with most mailbox designs. Because the Vortex Ground Anchor screws into the soil without the need for digging deep holes or using cement, you can complete your mailbox installation in less time, and with less money.

Easy Installation
Use a small shovel to dig a 1-inch by 8-inch diameter hole in the ground. Place the tip of the Vortex Ground Anchor in the ground and begin to rotate the anchor in a clockwise direction. The Vortex Insertion Tool or any metal bar that will fit through the anchor ring can help make turning the anchor easier. Continue to rotate the anchor until the horizontal plate is level with the ground. Once you position the top plate facing the street, you can mount the post using the four vertical receptors for a sturdy and secure mailbox post connection.

Contact all local utilities for appropriate underground marking prior to installation. Check and adjust your post regularly due to road vibrations, temperature change, and rainfall.

Adjustable Top Plate Allows for Quick Adjustments
The Vortex Ground Anchor features an innovative top plate that offers an easy and efficient way to properly face your mailbox toward the street. Once the anchor is level with the ground, simply loosen the three nuts located in side the post receptacles. Next, turn the adjustable top plate so that the anchor receptors face the street. Finally, tighten the three nuts with a wrench, and you're ready to secure the mailbox post to the anchor.

Secure Connection in Any Type of Soil
With an 18-inch spiral design that turns easily into most any type of soil, the Vortex Ground Anchor will create a secure connection with the ground, ensuring that your mailbox post will remain upright. The Vortex Ground Anchor can withstand a maximum pull force of up to 750 pounds (340 kg).

Durable Materials for Extended Use
Constructed with case-hardened steel and powder coated for durability, the Vortex Ground Anchor is designed for the demanding anchor applications and can provide years of service.

It's very secure as well.

Not only was the auger turning difficult, but ending up level is not anything you have a lot of control over.

The mailbox rocks a little more than I would like.

I knew that the soil under the surface was going to be a little hard, but I did not expect that the auger would simply drill a hole, instead of gripping. The installation of this device is more than a challenge for any application where the soil condition is other than near perfect. That means that you will probably have a MUCH better experience with light, sandy loam, or non-compacted, rock-free fill. Not only was the auger turning difficult, but ending up level is not anything you have a lot of control over. It was my experience that a post-hole digger and a 4x4 would have been a much easier and infinitely more predictable mailbox post solution.

After putting this in the ground it couldn't hold the mailbox. It bounced around like a pony on a spring. We all got a good laugh. We had to concrete this anchor then add the mailbox.

This looked like a time saver, but unless you are screwing it into sand or pea gravel it is next to worthless. I tried it in a clay type dirt and even small rocks kept it from going in. I ended up digging a hole and setting it into concrete. After it set up I mounted the post and found that even set in concrete the post was wobbly. I will have to dig the whole thing out and put in a 4 x 4 post anyway. A big waste of time & money!

This was so simple to install. We have relatively sandy soil on Cape Cod so it was pretty easy to get into the ground. I bought some 4" screws to keep the 4X4 post in place. Easy stuff.

I used a long lead pipe and my father's help to make the last few revolutions really tight, after I did that it stays in perfectly. The instructions suggest digging a small circle and placing it in that... I would not recommend this...it prevents you from using a rigid stick to twist the apparatus further into the ground

It's holding up but it isn't as stable as concrete. It feels like I could pull the mailbox over if pulled very hard. It was hard to get the threading in so we could get a level mailbox and the ground is a little soft where the box ended up. All in all, it's functional and I'm just okay with it.

This giant screw does the job, but not well. It is difficult to screw it into the ground and make it perfectly level without it wobbling due to disturbing the soil as you screw it in the earth. I was able to install my mailbox post using this item, but it is not that secure. The mailbox post wobbles slightly. I foresee having to cement my post in the future, but this was a decent basic fix for short term use.

This works great! Not only was it easier than digging a 3-foot post-hole, I couldn't dig a post-hole for my mailbailbox. why? The electric company. the phone company (x2). the gas company. Apparently my street-side is like an underground utilities super-highway.

The nature of this device meant I didn't have to dig a major hole, and it didn't have to go down too far (approx. 18 inches) to interfere with the aforementioned utilities. Also, the nature of the cork screw meant if I did near something I wouldn't be as likely to slice through it (with the shovel); put pressure on it (the post); and instead twist it to the side.

I installed it while the ground was soft-ish (after a few fall rains and a snow, but no deep frost) and it went in relatively easily. I did actually dig the trench they recommend a little deeper so that the whole green bit was just underground. Also, when I installed the 4x4 I put it at an angle - so instead of the 4 corners being in the green uprights, the 4 sides were against the green uprights and then I shimmed them & leveled the post. All said, it took about an hour once I started the project.

It looks really good and no one would ever know that I didn't dig the major hole. It's very secure as well. I thought it might be wishy-washy since it's not as deep as the post would be, but that hasn't proven to be the case. I would recommend this without reservation to anyone!

One note - it doesn't include the hardware to install the post - you have to buy your own lugs (x8) and shims.
