Ice Anchors

Post By: rod      Posted: 1/1/2008 8:48:25 PM     Points: 108    
Any suggestions as to how to anchor a Frabill Outback shelter? There are no grommets or anything to tie off on. I have a couple of those spikes, unsure how to proceed. Thanks.

You'll need to attach a couple of sections of rope to you're shelter loop the ends of the rope and take a hammer and drive the landscape spike into the ice a few inches. Or you can buy shelter anchors from Frabil. I bought a couple for my XLT Twin shelter a couple of years ago. Most anchors you buy are an adjustable metal bar that has a piece of rope attached that's off-set so the metal bar can be placed across/into the hole at an angle (one end of the bar lower that the other). The low end of the bar has the rope attached there and prevents the bar from being pulled out. If you don't have grommets you can just drill a couple of holes though the sled or base on the backside, add rope and the anchors and you're in business. Go to the frabill web site and I think they have pictures of the anchors and how they work.

Clam Corporations makes an inexpensive, nice little anchor kit that is easy to install on any type of sled or shelter. It consistes of adjustable straps with buckles that you permanantly attach to your rig, Then there are metal ice anchors that have short straps and buckles that attach to the ones on your rig. They will keep you in one place when the wind kicks up, check them out. Take care.
