Tips for installing Outside Plant Anchors

Whenever possible, install anchors so that the guy rod, without bending, is as nearly as possible in line with the point of attachment on the pole. When locating anchors, provide the proper clearances. Locate anchors at the point desired from a construction viewpoint, when possible, as follows.

  • Away from traveled way to minimize interference with movements of people, machinery, automobiles, and other objects.
  • Near property lines, fences, barns, garages, and other items on private property so that the guys are a inconspicuous as possible.

When conditions allow, the lead of the guy should equal the height. If practical, avoid having a lead-to-height ratio greater than 1:4.
