Would this be suitable for deadman application for a low retaining wall that is 2 to 4 ft high?
1 Answer
Possibly, yes. We have no way of calculating the load that will be placed on the anchor in your application. Provided it does not exceed the anchor's published strength, you should be fine. It's always recommended to leave a safety factor of at least 2:1. These anchors are meant to be permanently left installed.

Exactly perfect for what we needed
April 18, 2021
We used four 68-DB1 to anchor the corners of a 6' X 7' playhouse. Very easy to install and to anchor to corners.

Merchant Response:Thanks for the review Dave, and we LOVE the photo!!!
Pros
  • Easy to use. We used a hand sledge to pound them in. It took about 1 minute each. Shipping was lightning quick.
Cons
  • None

Duck Bill Ground Anchors in a Retaining Wall
October 24, 2019
After being quoted $7500 for a new 38 foot long, 4 foot high retaining wall to replace the old rail road tie one that had rotted out, we devised our own using the Duck Bill Ground Anchors. After installing 10, 4x4 treated wood posts at 4 foot intervals and then cladding them with TREX composite decking horizontally over the 39 foot span to keep the soil in place, we then installed one Duck Bill 48" from each post at about a 30 degree angle with the the loop facing each post. We then added eye bolts to the top/center face of each post, attached a heavy duty stainless turnbuckle to each eye bolt and then ran 1/8th inch wire rope from the turnbuckle to the loop end of the Duck Bill using a thimble within each loop. We did have to trim the 1/8th inch thimbles to fit inside each loop, though. We pulled the rope tight and then tightened each turnbuckle until the rope sections were tight. The Duck Bills provided a great solid anchor point to keep the posts in place and prevent any outward movement of the posts. Even our landscaper said it was a GREAT way to put in the wall. Total costs by using the Duck Bills.....$1600 for everything. A great product.
Pros
  • Good, solid anchor that will not lift out of the ground if installed correctly (easy to do).
  • Inexpensive but good quality.
  • Fast shipping.
Cons
  • The loop at the end needs to be slightly larger to accommodate an 1/8th inch thimble.
