ice anchors

i started useing lag blots i got at menards for under a buck  and a cordless drill to drive them in>> i know they make a tool to drive the anchors in but the tool is $15 dollors and wont work with the ESKIMO anchors these lag bolts work great   100 percent better than trying to drive the regular anchors in by hand

You have the eskimo anchors and still have problems with them? I thought I heard they are supposed to be better. I have a clam and the anchors are impossible to get in by hand. Could bring a drill bit and drill a pilot hole for the anchor.

Where's my bobber?

Anchors are for boats.

That used to be my view on them too, until one day I had to chase my ice house half way across Darling.  haha

I use these. If you can't drill holes with an auger, then you're not needing to anchor.

i.e. you always have your anchoring installation equipment with you.

Never seen those before! But they look like they would hold a house down in a tornado! lol    Very solid

Would it fit a 10 inch hole

There's a whole generation of Americans that have no idea about the truth of the Clintons, particularly Hillary

Couldn't a guy just cut a heavy aluminum strip into sections, drill a hole in the ends, and put a bolt in for a hinge??  26 bucks seems a bit steep for some fancy cut metal.  JMHO though.

For those on a budget I'm sure homemade is an option.

I'm tired of that home-made routine (I used to make EVERYTHING myself) and am swimming in cash , so I bought and used them. I like them.

Never gave them a "stuck 4-wheeler" type test though (I use a snowmobile).

Keep in mind that when you back off on them (relieve rope tension completely) they could potentially "lose grip" by dropping down then never getting another good grab, but I doubt it'll be very often that both would fail.

In other words don't blame me if you take a sailing trip some day cuz you bought what guy uses.
