How to fit Ground Anchors to your play equipment. A Ground Anchor can be used to help secure swing frames to the ground if required.

Our products are robust and heavy and generally do not need to be anchored down.

Using a ground anchor is only advised on single swing frames – use two on opposite corners – or in cases where the product is used by young adults or children who are likely to be swinging extremely hard.

The Single Swing Frame is supplied with ground anchors as standard however they are frequently not necessary.

How to fit ground anchors:

  1. Stand on the ½ round leg stretcher and thump down, this will allow the swing legs to settle in the ground.
  2. Remove a square section of turf (approximately a spade width) about 6 inches deep.
  3. Dig out soil, so that the ground anchor sits 1 to 2 inches from the bottom of the swing leg
  4. Once in position, use the screw and washer provided to secure the ground anchor to the leg.
  5. Fill the hole back up with the soil taken out and stamp down.
  6. Replace turf and stamp down. tip: make a split in the turf for the ground anchor to go through. 
  7. Repeat on the back legs diagonally from the front.
