Auger Anchor Installation Instructions:
1.) Position the auger anchor at a slight back angle (10˚- 15˚) so that when fully installed, the anchor head will be inside any skirting or side wall.
2.) Screw the auger anchor into the ground until the bottom of the anchor head is touching the ground.
Strap & Split Bolt Installation Instructions:
1.) From under the home looking to the outside, pass the non-buckle end of the strap over the frame towards the outside of the home leaving the buckle end exposed on the inside of the frame.
2.) Wrap the non-buckle end of the strap back around the frame and slide it through the slot in the buckle end. (the strap has now completely wrapped the frame)
3.) Once again, slide the non-buckle end of the strap over the frame towards the outside of the home and pull tight.
4.) Insert the split bolt through the holes in the anchor closest to the frame while only exposing just enough threads on the outside of the anchor to install the nut. (Do not push the bolt all way into the anchor as the squared head on the bolt will prevent the bolt from turning in the anchor.)
5.) Slide the end of the strap through the split in the bolt and pull tight.
6.) Measure from the split bolt towards the end of the strap and at 12-15" cut off the excess.
7.) Push or pull the strap back through the split bolt until the end of the strap is flush with the split bolt.
8.) Turn the split bolt with a ratchet or wrench until the strap is tight. Tighten the strap until the auger anchor stops bending towards the frame. The anchor head will move a few inches closer to the frame when the strap is tightened. (DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN THE BOLT AS THIS COULD DAMAGE THE FRAME)
9.) Once the strap is tight, align the squared head of the split bolt with the square hole in the anchor. Tighten the nut until the squared end is completely inserted in the square hole of the anchor head.
