Dirtbolts will fix things directly to the ground without needing concrete
We offer a full range of ground anchors and brackets, in many sizes and lengths, suitable for fixing most things straight to the ground, no need to buy or rent any special tools. They can also be easily removed if needed, making them suitable for both temporary and permanent installations.
When sledge hammered in, they will rotate on their own and cut a precise thread, essentially bolting things to the ground. The thread parts are hardened so they can chisel into hard ground, asphalt, break up large stones, cut small tree roots etc., as well as allowing easy penetration of lawns, chalk, clay and general soil.
All our listed products are available from stock and are dispatched the same day we receive the order or the next day, depending on the actual time of the order. Yes we take PayPal as well as the normal credit cards.
Installation is totally straight forward, here's how the standard Hellanker™ anchors are used.
Once in to the required depth, bolt a bracket to the anchor and screw or bolt the bracket to the structure – that’s the job done! The bracket prevents any unwanted rotation.
If removal is ever needed, just unbolt the bracket and unwind the anchor – it doesn’t get much easier than that.
Dirtbolt ground anchor applications
The W505 heavy duty bracket, secured with 2 anchors, can be used for permanent or temporary fixing. For safety, the securing ring lies flush with the ground when not used. Will not damage the ground if removed.
Our security anchors are easy to put in and act as a chaining post for securing all sorts of portable things, generators, quads, garden machinery and of course motorcycles. They cannot be unwound if they are chained to something.
The JF type anchors can be used to secure display items temporarily. The security anchors are popular to discreetly chain things down to avoid the need to constantly watch over them, always a problem if you're exhibiting and don't have many staff.
Our flanged anchors are good for temporary or permanent fixings. In the event that your structure starts lifting, the anchor will not unwind as the bracket prevents rotation. They're great if you want to move your structure but don't want to re-fit the brackets every time. Ideal for agricultural shows and fairs.
These heavy duty anchors have many uses, but their main application is for anything equestrian that needs securing down. The shorter versions are for xc jumps, the longer types for horse shelters
For many applications, if you prefer backbreaking work because your father did it that way and his father before him, or just because you feel more time and effort spent on a job must make it better, then this is what you'll have to do:
Obviously the weather has to be good, dig the hole, mix up the concrete and pour it, get rid of the unwanted pile of soil, and wait while the concrete dries out, put some soil over the concrete and sow grass to cover the concrete.
If you ever need to get the anchor out, you'll need to break up the concrete and take it away, fill up the hole with soil which you'll have to get from somewhere, sow grass seed and wait for the grass to appear.
The Dirtbolt method:
Doesn't matter what the weather conditions are; just hammer the anchor in close to your structure, then bolt the bracket on - Done!
If you ever want to remove the anchor: remove the bracket and unscrew the anchor. If you tread over the cut where the anchor came out, the mark will disappear and you won't even see where it was.
