Your anchor choice will depend on required pullout strength, soil conditions, site constraints, and personal preference. The chart below provides suggestions and ideas based on prior customer applications.
Below in red we've included links to helpful pictures/pages and in blue, links to the American Earth Anchors Online Store page where you can view pricing and purchase the items mentioned.
We highly recommend downloading our our Load Capacity - Pullout Strength brochure for additional guidance in selecting ground anchors. Read more about load capacity at the end of the anchor selector chart below. All anchor specifications can be found here. And we invite you to download the American Earth Anchors Product Catalog.

More about Load Capacity
Determining load capacity for any anchor application is an inexact science limited by an inexact environment, but carefully conducted testing can provide useful decision-making data. A further awareness of the many variables involved can guide an informed choice of an effective anchoring solution. Due to the array of unknowns both below and above the surface of any anchoring application – the soil medium, installation method, local climate, connections to the anchored structure – no one can guarantee a specific holding strength. Our published load capacity numbers, tested in actual field conditions to the best standards that real dirt can provide, are offered as an informed guideline, not a guarantee. The only method of accurately predicting the pullout capacity of any anchor at any specific site is by an on-site proof test of the anchor under local conditions, installed and loaded in the same manner as for the intended application.
