Product Overview

Prepare and prevent: an operating water heater which falls off its place can cause extreme injury, burns and gas explosion. It kills people and burns down homes. Protect yourself and your family. Secure your water heater to the wall by mounting 2 Restraining Straps tightly around the top and bottom of the heater. According to the Residential Building Code, water heater anchors are required for seismic locations. But since water heaters may move out of place due to various reasons other than earthquakes, we do recommend this extra security protection to all water heater owners across the globe.

It would have worked perfectly, only thing is, I don't need this on my water heater in the state of MD, so I returned it. This is not a plumbing code requirement in our seismic zone for our area. HD is great they promptly retuned it and credited my account. Thx HD!

No instructions came with the kit, so you cannot install this in accordance with the company's recommendations. Was not able to find instructions online for this kit. The parts in the kit appear to be well made. Had the company spent a few more pennys and included instructions, I would have given the product a 5 star rating.
