The general method of installing Spirafix anchors is to drive them in with a hammer. This applies to each of the three head types. A heavy hammer (approx 1kg to 2kgs) is best suited for this as it has sufficient momentum, even when travelling slowly, to drive the anchor into the ground. You may come across small tree roots, bricks, stones and other obstacles that will stop the progress of the anchor. If this is the case, then a few heavier blows of the hammer will usually do the trick.
We strongly recommend you protect the anchor head with one of our hammer caps as this ensures the anchors are reusable and easy to remove should that be required.
If you do not purchase a hammer cap then please use a block of soft wood or similar. For the single hole B type anchor we suggest you thread some bar through the hole prior to installation which should protect the hole dimensions.
