2 Methods – Staking or Sandbags

Staking Can be Used With Grass or Sand Set Ups

 Tools Needed:

  • (1) approximately 7" metal spike per tank stand
  • Approximately 3 feet of black parachute cord
  • Hammer
  1. Tie a small loop at one end of the parachute cord (approximately 1”).
  2. Then loop the black cord around the pole by inserting one end of the cord through the loop.
  3. Angle the cord on the opposite side of the tank from the direction that the lights are pulling.
  4. Stretch the black cord down to the grass, keeping the cord snug and tie another loop where the cord meets the grass.
  5. Insert the stake in the loop and secure the cord to the ground

Sandbags Can Be Used With Any Set Ups Locations

Tools Needed:

  • Black Sandbags
  • Sand
  1. Fill the black sandbags with sand approximately half full so that the sandbag can still lay semi-flat and blend in with the tank or fit under the tank slipcover if you’re using the covers.
  2. Position the sandbags on the opposite side of the tank from the direction that the lights are pulling. Add multiple sandbags if needed.
