I used the Vortex 16-inch steel folding ring spiral ground Anchor for a Tripod deer stand. I had to wet the ground with water to get the anchors into the ground because it was too hard and dry, it was the only way I could get the anchors into the ground. I have no idea on anything else. I would make sure there’s nothing below the ground where you are putting the anchor into the ground, like underground wires, pipes or anything else.

Mine were shipped with black rubber (protector?)tips. Would these need to be cut off prior to putting into the ground?

Yes, the black tips should just slip off the end.

I really don't have any idea but if you put a lot more anchors into the ground and longer anchors you should be good.

I purchased 3 of these to use as a hammock anchor and they're quite tough!! I'm pretty amazed they're rated for over 400 pounds. I figured 3 tied together would be strong enough for one end of a hammock. I made an A-frame out of 2x4's and tied it to the anchors. Then I ratchet strapped the A-frame to the tree and tensioned the heck out of it till it moves as little as possible when laying in the hammock so I can remove the hammock without the system moving. They anchors haven't budged with my girlfriend, dog and my self in the hammock.

These 16 inch grounding anchors seem to work very well to help secure my basketball hoop from falling over. I don't add water to the base because we have freezing temperatures here. Initially I went with 12 inch anchors, but due to high winds in my area even those pulled out of the ground. However when I upgraded to the 16 inch ones they seem to be holding. They are easy to spin into the ground if you slide a metal pole in the top folding loop to help twist. Would've given them five stars if they were cheaper than $15 each, I thought that was a little high.

Worked better than I thought
I bought these to use as tie-downs under a small cabin I am building. I was very surprised at how well they started to thread their way into the ground. After a few turns it got to hard to turn by hand so I inserted a 1/2" steel spike in ring for leverage and that got things going again. I hit rocks each time but kept up the pressure and got each anchor completely installed. They also seem very well made and I considered it a good deal all around.
