Groundhog Anchor Applications
The Groundhog Anchor may be used to provide support or an anchor point for almost anything. Listed below are some of the more common applications.
Additions – Mobile, Modular and Tiny Homes
Groundhog Anchors are a great foundation solution for mobile/modular homes, house additions, tiny homes and job-site trailers.
For these applications, the most appropriate anchor is Model #812 (5000 lb).
For tie-down needs, the structure can be attached directly to the foundation anchors if present, or separate cable tie downs can be used.
Decks – Sunrooms – Gazebos
For most decks, Model #68 (2000 lb) or Model #89 (3000 lb) are appropriate.
For decks where a room or additional walls for structures like pergolas or gazebos may be built on top later we recommend at minimum to use Model #89.
Standard spacing of 6′-8′ feet, with no more than 2′ cantilever from the end of the beams is typical.
Most sunrooms require the Model #812 (5000 lb).
Full engineering for decks and sunrooms is available.
Fences – Gates – Signs
Fences are a perfect application for Groundhog Anchors.
Typically, Model #68 will be applicable.

Groundhog Anchors provide quick, durable, long lasting tie downs, that are easily movable should the need arise.
