Camping on clay is one very challenging substrate! It can be a bit like Russian roulette where the substrate could be cracked rock hard dry or wet and sludgy only inches down. GroundGrabba Pro and Pro II are the perfect clay ground anchors that can match that challenge!
If the clay is hard best use the GroundGrabba Pro and if it is super hard then we recommend you drill a pilot hole. Use our 10mm x 300mm masonry drill bit then drive your GroundGrabba Pro in…solid, safe and secure. Your tent, shade structure or portable structures are going no-where!
GroundGrabba’s hold solid like nothing you’ve ever experienced before in substrates from loose sand to hard ground.
If you want to keep a structure secure on clay ground there are a few factors to consider. Often in environments where there is clay ground, there are few trees, possibly none like out in certain parts of the outback or other desert-like environments. Camping or erecting a structure in a sparse environment can be challenging because of the high winds associated with these open areas. Whenever there is a chance of high winds securely anchoring your structure becomes a primary concern.
As if the wind isn’t enough, when you’re on clay there is also the structure of the ground to contend with. Depending on how much rain there is clay substrates change, they can be really hard and dry one day and after a bit of rain turn into a soft sludge. Traditional ground anchoring techniques may work ok for either of these situations, but in our experience, never both.
Check out the spirals on the picture, it’s evidence the bite into the ground is like no other tent peg you’ve seen before…grounded and ready for any challenging wind gusts. Also see the full top quality welding of the flights attached to the shaft.
GroundGrabba Pro II field tested on the hard clay playa of Black Rock Desert Nevada the home of a world renown major art and music event.
GroundGrabba Pro is the all rounder for most of your camping or outdoor anchoring needs. Made of Galvanized heat treated carbon steel it has a lifetime replacement warranty. For use in most substrate types soft to very hard. In extremely hard ground you will need to drill a pilot hole as you would if you were to drill into concrete.
GroundGrabba Pro II
GroundGrabba Pro II are perfect clay ground anchors and solution to anchoring in sand or soft earth. If you enjoy desert exploring you will find the GroundGrabba Pro II has the best anchoring ability you will find. You can use it in normal grounds also especially if you have a large structure to hold secure. We have personally tested these in a sideways pull tension test to over 1 ton.
