The Giffy Ballast System was created to be an alternative to traditional tent anchoring solutions. It’s an anchoring system that is easy and safe, and gives you the confidence that your tent will stay in place on any surface.
• Works on Any Surface: Our anchoring system works on all types of surfaces from grass, gravel, concrete and asphalt; leaving no damage to the surface.
• Safe and Secure: Unlike traditional barrels that don’t have attachments for tents, our anchoring system uses a ratchet strap to safely secure the ballast system to the tent.
• Better Alternative: Other weighted solutions such as concrete blocks, metal, or stone are costly and difficult to transport and move.
• An Attractive Look: Snap-on lids feature convenient holders for flower pots or other decorative containers.
With a weight of 660 pounds when filled with water, the Giffy Tent Ballast System provides more mounting strength than your typical 55-gallon barrel at 220 pounds. With the use of the ratchet strap to the bottom of the barrel, open tents can take up to 50 mph winds.
Within minutes, your Giffy Tent Ballasting System can be drained of water by simply opening the water plug at the bottom of the barrel. When finished draining, they can be stacked in the box of a pickup truck and transported.
