Excellent product! Purchased at 2021 OSH to secure my RV7 and held my A/C in place during a significant storm. Highly recommended!

Worked like a champ out on a dry lakebed. I any improvement would be in the form of ratcheting straps. Otherwise, it is great.

Works like a charm. Bought it as a back up tie down system and have had to use it twice the first week.

Fine product, easy to use. Have bought three, for three different locations. Would buy again and recommend to anyone that is considering buying this item.

This is the second set of tie downs I’ve bought for use in two locations. The Claw works wonderfully and I’ve been very happy with it.

Not the highest quality hammer or rope, but good system that should work great when travelling between grass strips and back country environments.

Looks well made. One addition would be a clip to allow you to easily remove the rope from the claw and attach it to an airport tie down system

It’s a bit expensive and a bit heavy but it works well in the rocky soils common in new England which can be a problem for screw anchors. I need only 2 so spares are less of a problem. The reported breakages of anchors are a concern, however.
