Installation Guide
Use the following photos as guides to identify the rafter leg pipe diameter of your ClearSpan™ shelter. Install the
anchor kit brackets as shown in the photos below. Pipe diameters can be found on the part identification sheets
sent with your ClearSpan™ shelter. All photos show the rafter legs as seen from the inside of the shelter.

ATTENTION: Some connections shown
use a double-nut system to keep the
bolts tight. Others show a nut and lock
washer.
FAG368B Bolt (4.5")

ANCHOR KIT (#105587) INSTALLATION
The following instructions describe the proper way to
assemble and attach the anchor kit to the rafter legs of your
shelter.
Required tools: Battery- (or electric-) powered drill,
3/8" drill bit, wrenches or a ratchet and socket set, hammer,
shovel and/or a means to install the auger-style earth
anchor.
ATTENTION: Installing one (1) auger-style anchor per
rafter leg is strongly recommended.
Failing to follow these instructions may result in the
improper anchoring of your shelter, which may cause injury
or property damage or both.
The following steps describe installing the ground anchor
without using concrete. Consult the attachments for
additional information for loose or sandy soil conditions.
Continue with the following:
1. After the shelter is assembled and squared, install the
auger-style earth anchor.
Each anchor kit includes the parts shown below. AugerStyle Earth Anchor is not shown.

ATTENTION: The turnbuckle of the anchor kit when
attached must remain at an angle that places the
strongest downward force on the rafter leg.
Install the earth anchor in line with and as close to the
rafter leg as possible. Use a 4" – 6" range as a guide (if
possible) when installing the anchor
Lock
Washers
ATTENTION: Without proper support beneath the rafter
legs, the shelter may sink into the ground.
Before you anchor
the frame, set the
rafter legs on a
surface that will not
allow them to work
into the ground.
ALTERNATIVE METHOD (without concrete): To best
secure the earth anchor, first dig a 10" diameter hole to
a depth of 20". Next, twist the anchor into the hole until
its eye is at ground level.
Finally, return 6" of the removed material to the hole
and pack it around the anchor. Continue adding and
packing the material until the anchor is secure. Consult
the diagram below.
Ground Level
Treated 2" x 8" wood boards (as shown) work well.

WARNING: Take the necessary steps to verify whether
underground cables, lines, or pipes are present before
digging, installing ground augers, and anchoring the
structure to the site.
Auger-Style Earth Anchor shown is 30".

ANCHOR KIT INSTALLATION (CONTINUED)
Concrete Fill: Concrete can also be used to secure
the anchor instead of filling the hole as previously
described. For sandy or loose soil types, using
concrete to secure the auger anchor is required.
For frost line applications, dig the hole 48" deep,
partially fill with concrete, install the auger-style earth
anchor, and finish filling the hole to ground level with
concrete.
4. Using the turnbuckle as a guide, swing the turnbuckle
to the rafter leg and mark the location. This location
identifies where you will drill the hole for the anchor kit
mounting bolt.
Use the bolt holes
in the turnbuckle
as your guide
when marking the
rafter leg pipe.
Consult the diagrams at the back of these instructions
for additional information.
IMPORTANT: If concrete is used, allow the concrete to
set before installing and tightening the turnbuckles. The
auger of the earth anchor must be encased in concrete
when using concrete.
2. With the earth anchor installed, adjust the turnbuckle to
its open position.
Ground Level
Full Open Position
3. Remove both turnbuckle bolts, attach one end of the
turnbuckle to the eye of the earth anchor, and tighten
the bolt.
Use a lock
washer and
nut to secure
bolt.
5. Carefully drill a 3/8" hole through the rafter leg.
Use the 3/8" drill
bit to ream each
hole if necessary.
Hole is drilled
through the
rafter.
Keep the drill
level as you drill.

Ground Level
ATTENTION: The mounting bolt must be level and
parallel with the ground when inserted through the
rafter leg.
Depending on the rafter pipe diameter and the length of
the drill bit, it may be necessary to drill from both sides
of the rafter leg.

9. Return to and tighten all anchor kit mounting bolts.
6. With the mounting hole drilled, assemble and attach the
anchor kit mounting brackets as shown below. Consult
the first page of this installation guide for additional
details.
10. Install a nut (or verify that a second nut was installed)
to tighten against the first nut to keep the mounting
bolts tight. If flat and lock washers are used, continue
with the next step.

Bolt length depends
on the diameter of
the rafter pipe.
NOTE: Do not tighten the mounting bolt at this
time. Bracket orientation depends on the rafter pipe
diameter. Consult the first page of this installation guide
for additional details.
7. Once the brackets are attached, attach the turnbuckle
to the anchor kit brackets.
Bracket
ATTENTION: Depending on the rafter pipe dimensions,
you may not be able to use two nuts (Figure 1) to lock
the bolt in place. Use the flat and lock washers as
shown in Figure 2. Either setup is acceptable.
11. Repeat the above steps to install all remaining augerstyle earth anchors and anchor kits.
12. After all anchor kits are installed, return to and hand
tighten each turnbuckle. If you use leverage to tighten
the turnbuckles, hand tighten and then tighten one full
turn only.
ATTENTION: If concrete was used, allow the concrete
to set 24 hours before you tighten the turnbuckles. DO
NOT OVER TIGHTEN!
13. Check all turnbuckles and anchor mounting bolts
periodically and frequently to verify that these remain
tight and in good condition.
ATTENTION: The diameter of the rafter pipe
determines which bolt to use to attach the turnbuckle to
the anchor kit brackets.
8. Twist the slotted adjusting body of the turnbuckle until
the turnbuckle is snug.
The direction used
to tighten the
turnbuckle may differ
from what is shown
in the diagram.
Do not over tighten.
