"Wild Chance Post Anchor" Keeps Fence Posts From Pulling Up Out Of Ravines
Keeping a fence in place at the bottom of a ravine isn’t easy, because the upward pressure from the fence on either side of the ravine tends to pull the post up. The “Wild Chance Post Anchor”, which attaches to any standard steel post, holds the post down, solving the problem, says inventor Patrick Fordyce of Hilger, Mont.
The anchor is easy to install, using only a pair of pliers. After the post is driven into the ground, the natural upward pull of the fence acts to open the anchor under the ground. Instructions on how to attach the anchor are included with each box of anchors.
  The Fordyce’s say they will have a supply on hand for the spring fencing season if anyone wants to give them a try. They sell for about $3 apiece in boxes of 10 and we have supply on hand.
