I have a large sculpture that I was having trouble anchoring in the ground. I'd seen Ground Grabba in action when installing a piece for a fellow artist. They worked slick--even in the sandy soil of Cape Cod. I used the 12-inch variety with the washers and had no problems. Can think of many more uses outside of my art.I will DEFINITELY use Ground Grabba again!!!
I anchor a 10x15 commercial canopy for events - had looked at some screw type anchors previously, but the reviews were mixed and it didn't seem like the durability was quite there. After 2 years of using 42" double-head tent stakes (absolutely miserable to work with), I found GroundGrabba and decided to give them a shot.
They exceeded my expectations in every way. Installation and removal is a breeze with a cordless impact wrench. Exceptional holding strength. The closed hooks are very nice to use with ratchet straps. I hated the aesthetic (and trip hazard) of large stakes, as they have to be installed at an angle to get good holding strength. The GroundGrabba has great strength installed straight vertical and is extremely low profile when installed.
After using several times, I have zero concerns about holding strength or durability. Well worth the money - I feel that they paid for themselves on the first use, just based on ease of installation vs large stakes.
Thank you GroundGrabba.
Wish I would have had these before my first carport blew away. The new carport isn't going anywhere.
I use groundgrabbas camping in New Mexico in October where it’s often very windy. Since switching to groundgrabbas I have not had a stake failure. I love these screws so much I ordered a second 12 pack.
Best pegs I have ever used, especially in soft sand.
This product is awesome! I feel confident with anything i anchor. Strong and durable. If you don’t have a solid powerful cordless driver don’t get these. It takes some power to drive two foot down into anything besides sand or sandy clay soil. If you do get it down it is not going anywhere. Probably am going to buy the 6 pc 1 foot pack soon. I used the 4 pack 2 footer for trampoline anchor kit. It’s not going anywhere.
Went into the ground easy and have rocky soil excellent product
Worked way better than expected! Couldn't believe how well the held. For sure would recommend to anyone who is looking for a ground anchor.
The greatest stake I have ever used. I have bought about 10 of these over time these are the greatest stakes I could ever find, I use them for various things wind sails, emergency stakes fo securing trees in high winds large canopies, I live in Calif Central Valley very hard pan soil so I pre drill a start hole the use my impact they do not loosen at all heavily galvanized and strong I use some 24" and 12" get some you'll love em well worth the money.
Don't forget to buy the drill bit it makes it a lot easier to screw on the ground
Top-notch products and excellent customer service. We are repeat customers and would give them 10 stars if we could! One of the best sellers on Amazon.
everything is as expected
Thanks James. :)
We bought these for our yearly OBX camping trip. Last year this happened to be during a tropical storm but we were already out there and decided to stay through it. We used these to hold down the large screened in canopy and it’s the ONLY piece that didn’t move in the wind. Every single tent and the other 2 canopy’s had to be re staked and tied to vehicles. The canopy staked with these didn’t move an inch all weekend. I will definitely be buying more and have recommended them to everyone I run into that camps.
Hey Cory, Wow, that's great to read! We too have been caught out in a snap gale where we had a large tarpaulin 18' x 30' held down with 22 of our 12' ground anchors. The ground was sandy dirt. The flapping and major wind woke us at 1am! Long story short, after an almost sleepless night and getting up several times to tighten ropes we awoke to a totalled tarpaulin but our ground anchors never shifted an inch also.
Thank you again for your feedback and happy outdooring! Best regards David
Be Careful about the 3/8 shaft being bent by constant and extreme lateral pull. For a 2’ anchor, we’ve found that a 3/4” shaft is necessary. Small diameter long stakes thus become a one time tool. A bent one wobbles when reusing it and will widen the drill hole while penetrating subsequent ground.
Hi Philip, yes indeed with very high - extremely high lateral loads it is absolutely possible to bend the shafts of the longer 2ft Pro II's. That can be avoided by angling the stake in the direction of the load. That will generally reduce the anchoring ability as there is less ground pressure higher up. For your information, we do have a commercial range about to launch in the USA. Currently available n AU. These have thicker shafts and be more in line with your application. https://groundgrabba.com.au/collections/all-products/products/groundgrabba-commercial-gr14-series
thanks again for taking the time to share your thoughts.

Could only get one of four in the ground
Thank you for your feedback.
The GroundGrabba Pro II (2ft) that you have purchased is best suited for soft sand to general ground.
For harder rocky grounds we recommend our GroundGrabba Pro (1ft) however be aware that these are not designed to penetrate through rocks so it may be the case of moving around like one would with a general stake for ground anchoring.
