Gear Gremlin Ground Anchor
Customer Product Reviews
Sturdy piece of kit which can only really be reviewed if it survives a theft attempt, which hopefully I wont have to report on. So, installation: The drill size required for the rawlbolts is actually 16mm, not 10mm as suggested in the answers. As long as you can drill the holes ok, installation is pretty easy. It feels very secure and well made and looks ok. Usual great delivery from SBS. But given the lack of instructions cant really give a 5.
Took five weeks to arrive but when unpacked the ground anchor was not in its box but loose in the jiffy bag the box had fallen apart. Gathered up the bits which had all fallen out onto the floor. No instructions so unsure of drill size. After fitting to a wall which went well I looked for the small ball bearings which fit into the bolts only three in the stapled plastic bag should be four so rechecked the jiffy bag which had been put out with the rubbish, found it jammed in the corner of the bag, how it got out of the plastic bag I don't know. Fitted the bearings then tried to fit the plastic cover to the anchor but found the screws to fit the cover are too short, the only way to make the screws reach the back plate was to counter sink the screw holes in the plastic cover. Now its all fitted it works well and seams secure, but the plastic bag the screws bolts and bearings came in was polythene and stapled not a heat sealed plastic which makes me think this is a repackaged return especially considering the state of the box. Bought many thing from Sportbikeshop and have found them to be first class but in this case I have been left feeling disappointed.
Ground anchor that anchors stuff to the ground or indeed any solid flat seduce irrespective of its relative position. 4 bolt holes to mount it seems a bit excessive to me but my SDS drill made short work of the garage concrete floor. Drilling 4 holes in concrete that line of is difficult!! The bolts need a bigger drill than suggested or the drill wobbling about a bit. Capped off with a Plastic shroud looks good. It's never going to be stronger than an angle grinder but it will stop thieving scum walking off with a bike easily.
Seems good quality and a must to chain your bike to. Seems pointless to just put a chain round a wheel to me, you'll need a 10mm bit for the fixings. Mine didn't come with the ball bearings so I just destroyed the heads with a hammer and chisel! Good service from SBS as always.
