Hello Neil, The Easy Hook Anchor wire cables has a 5mm diameter. If you have any other questions or concerns, please contact us at 1-800-932-9344. Thank you
You would need to get some extra cable, but I think that these would be ideal. Just a guess, I would say that I have at least 100 pounds of tension on each of the four I’ve put in.
Yes if you grind off the rigdes
You will get 4 earth anchors, 4 cable clamps and one driver rod. The wire comes straight and one needs to put the cable clamp on the wire.
Soil varies widely. more clay, better holding, more sand, less holding.
I used 1 on each corner for a 12 X 20 carport. I also drilled thru leg & base where they join together to thread the cable thru. If you are in a real windy area, I would buy another kit as they are priced very reasonable & 8 vs 4 anchors would exponentially give better hold down power.
You're supposed to drill a 2 inch hole and sink the anchor down below the concrete or asphalt.
I had to order these (they were not regularly stocked items in my city).
