Portable Ground Anchors
Secure Your Goal With Portable Ground Anchors
Many portable soccer goals pose the unnecessary risk of tipping over and causing injury. This is not the case when you shop with us! At eportablesoccergoals.com, we are concerned for your safety and we provide everything that is necessary to create a fun, safe environment for people who love the sport. That is why we offer portable ground anchors for goals which are not already sold having anchors. Even when you purchase a frame which is counter-balanced for durability, it is absolutely imperative that all portable soccer goals be firmly anchored to the ground at all times. This will protect against high winds, and any added weight placed on either side of the goal. Take a look at the selection of portable ground anchors that we offer on our website.
Safety Anchors From ePortableSoccerGoals.com
All of our portable ground anchors are made specifically for outdoor use. They provide a great deal of added safety, although it is important to be aware of the soil and weather conditions which are appropriate, to receive the maximum amount of safety. Included on our website are:
- Auger anchors: The auger style portable ground anchors screw into the ground, securing the goal tightly. Because of their helical shape, they work well in soft or sandy soil - where some other anchors may not be as efficient. We sell them in packs of four. At least two anchors should remain on the goal at all times, however we recommend securing your goal with all four anchors.
- Stake anchors: A standard soccer goal can successfully be secured by four stake anchors. If you have a goal which is especially heavy, more stake anchors should be used to ensure the maximum amount of safety. It is important to get stakes which are long enough to maintain the weight of the goal. The absolute minimum length a stake should be is ten inches long. At eportablesoccergoals.com, we offer these stake anchors in two lengths: twelve inches and sixteen inches. The longer the stake is, the more secured the goal will be to the ground. Where possible, the stakes should be driven into the ground at an angle with a sledge hammer. This will keep the stakes safely secured in the ground even when there is pressure on the goal. These are also sold in packs of four, and we recommend that all four stakes be used in securing your goal.
- Net pegs: Our net pegs are used to secure the net to the ground and should hook only to the net, never to the frame of the goal. The looped end allows them to be efficient in even the most difficult of conditions. We sell net pegs in sets of eight, which is sufficient for two standard sized goals.
It is extremely important that the conditions of the soil that you intend to use are checked before you purchase portable ground anchors. Not all anchors are equal, and some will not hold the goal securely in all soil conditions. Simply being aware of the quality of soil which your goal will be secured to will help you to choose which portable ground anchors will work best for your purposes, and keep your team safe. Because everything we offer on our website is meant to be portable and easily moved from location to location, our portable ground anchors are not designed for permanent application. They are extremely durable and provide great security while makinging it easy to disassemble and store your goal during the off season or through inclement weather. As with our other products, in order to keep your portable ground anchors in the greatest condition, they should be stored indoors with the goal when they are not in use.
Portable Ground Anchors For Our Goals
If you purchase our high quality Indoor/Outdoor Folding Goal and plan to use it outdoors, we strongly recommend purchasing portable ground anchors as well for security. It is one of the most durable goals that we offer, and works great for many sports. At one hundred and sixty one pounds, the impact of this goal should it tip over for any reason would be huge. It is far better and simpler to prevent that from happening than to have to deal with the results. Even if there is not a child or person in the way, severe damage can be done to the goal itself or the land surrounding if a gust of wind knocks it over. Our portable ground anchors can help to secure it in place and prevent it from tipping.
Even our smallest and lightest of goals could use some sort of an anchor. Net pegs are ideal for goals which may not do damage, but could easily fly away in a gust of wind. Many of our portable soccer goals are lightweight, and may not require a large anchor. Net pegs secure the net to the ground holding it firmly in place, allowing hours of play in all sorts of weather conditions.
Let Us Help to Keep You Safe
Any soccer goal which has been designed correctly is naturally counterbalanced. However, no matter how secure you think your soccer goal may be, it can never be secure enough without being firmly anchored in place. It is important that nobody - especially young children - climbs on the net or frame of any soccer goal, regardless of how secured it is to the ground.
