They are pretty effective. I had a heck of a time because it turns out I have very rocky ground in the backyard. They kept getting stuck on rocks. But if it weren't for that, they would have been relatively easy to install. You do need to have some kind of cross bar to slide through the eyes to twist them in. I also used a small sledge hammer to get them started into the ground.
I ended up needing to buy hook and eye turnbuckles to get the tension I needed to hold the swing down. Works great, though.
These were a bit difficult to install but I think that is a good thing since they will not come out unless someone "unscrews" them from the earth using a bar. The first few inches I wasn't doing much but plowing the soil but with constant pressure with each turn it eventually bit and started pulling itself down. I used a large crescent wrench as a turning tool that I could grab with both hands.
The trick to getting the cables tight is to leave a couple of turns on the ground stake. Measure, cut, and pull the cable as tight as you can using your hand. You'll need a small socket or wrench to tighten the nuts on the cable clamps. Once the cable is securely attached to each end, then continue to work the ground stake that last couple of turns to pull the cable nice and tight. Be sure to attach the cable to something solid on your target structure that can take the stress!!
I used this set at each corner 45 degrees to pull from corner to corner. I have a set of four of those cheaper corkscrew type ground stakes and poly rope also I'm using along the side walls. I used a set of tent spikes driven into the pole feet to keep them from moving around. Now I'm ready for winter.
They are very sturdy. They have 4” flighting (the helical blade), while some have only 3”. (And some don’t say how big the augers are.)
They screwed easily into the topsoil (of course) and when I hit the glacial till (as I always did) they were strong enough to bore down into it, though that part wasn’t easy, (I wiggled and turned and got all to go down to the eye) but it worked and the anchors withstood the stress. All of the anchors appear to be solidly embedded in the ground.
I appreciated the generous length of cable supplied with each, along with the clamps.
If you buy this kit, make sure to have some heavy duty bolt cutters (tin snips failed for me) or a grinding tool to cut the wire. Also, you will need a bar to turn the anchors. I used a crowbar.
