Anchor requirements are site specific. Soil type should be determined to ensure that the correct anchors are used. Always seek professional guidance. Anchors must be installed at an angle of 45º in the direction of the load. Failure to install within 5º of alignment of the guy load will significantly lower strength. Capacity ratings apply to properly installed anchors only.
* Holding strengths are approximate and based on industry standards. Determining soil load capacity is an inexact science limited by an inexact environment, from all of the unknowns both below and above the surface of any anchoring application--the soil medium, installation method, local climate, connections to the anchored structure--no one can guarantee an exact holding strength. Load capacity is not a simple function of “soil class” but also of real-time moisture content, compaction, root penetration, installation method, pullout load angle and other factors unique to the installation’s time and place. Therefore the only way to truly determine holding strength is on-site specific probing and testing.

Questions & Answers
We would not recommend these for fall protection. There are too many variables in the installation process to guarantee specific holding strengths. Of course, if you're working with a qualified engineer, he/she mar arrive at a different conclusion, and that is fine if you have an engineered system and have done your due diligence.
