Building a set of base anchors is a task that can be completed by a grounds manager or coach. Here is a step by step method for building a set of base anchors.
1. Organize the parts and the tools. Items needed:
- Base anchors
- Duct tape
- Tape measure
- Circular saw
- Scrap lumber 2x4
2. Cut the scrap lumber into 8-12 inch pieces, and build a simple square form. Keep in mind that this is not cabinet grade carpentry.
3. Tape the bottom of the anchors while mixing the Quikrete. Using a scrap piece of plywood as a base, place an anchor in each form.
4. After the Quikrete cures (no more than 4 hours) remove the forms. Now, you have a new set of base anchors.
Never use coffee cans. Round anchors have a better likelihood of spinning while in the ground.
