The only tie down with a mechanical advantage

Designed exclusively for aircraft, the Claw® is one of the best tie-downs on the market. In a product test here at Sporty’s, it outperformed the rest by holding up to 480 lbs. of force. Three arms extend to hold three stakes at an angle. The harder you pull, the more it grips the earth. Includes carrying bag, 20 ft of rope, 3 anchors, 9 spikes and one hammer with a custom head to easily remove the spikes. Weighs only 8 lb...Read more

Works excellent. I tied a 182 down in 30 mph South Dakota winds and it didn’t move an inch.

Claw
Heavy kit and disappointed the rope doesn’t come already cut in 3 pieces but other than that great tie down, does the job better than anything else I’ve used.

We used it for the first time recently and a small storm came up. These held perfectly.

Great product!
I’ve only had the Claw tie-down kit for a short period of time, but I used them at the AOPA Fly-In this past weekend, and found it very easy to use and did a good job in keeping the aircraft in position, even with a thunderstorm with gusty winds that rolled through the area on Saturday night. No complaints so far, and seems very durable - but can’t really speak yet to the long-term durability or reliability.

Appreciate the large storage bag. There is no need to duplicate the original, compact configuration in order to close the bag. Wished the hammer claw had a rubber cover instead of the cardboard cover provided.

Perfect for camping
Bought this for Oshkosh and it was exactly what I needed. Three "spikes" per claw and my Cherokee wasn't going anywhere.

Very good quality.
Have used it for 2 years now and I can't find anything better. very durable and easy to use. To it's credit, the Claw is sometimes difficult to get out of the ground after use. This is a complete kit. Reading the other comments regarding the rope puzzles me...the rope provided is a very good quality composite core rope with appropriate stretch that protects the airplane, and is very easy to tie. The only complaint is that there should be an additional 10ft provided in order to allow three point tie-down. Cutting the provided length in three results in three lengths that are too short to allow enough angle from the plane to the anchors. So, I use the yellow rope on the wings and my own rope on the tail.

As Advertised
Won't really know how well it works until we go to Oshkosh but have no doubt it will meet expectations. Previous reviewer said the included rope was not really useable. The 3/8" line included looks more than adequate for the task. I'll have to cut it into three pieces and melt the ends but Hey (!), I'm a pilot, what can go wrong doing that?

Claw works for me
Used them to tie down my 10X20 canopy at Fly-for-Tots the other weekend . Worked very well and showed no signs of pulling free even with the load I placed on them with my ratchet strap tie downs.

Could you please tell me the weight of the tie down package?
John D on May 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This item weighs only 8 lbs.
Is the mechanical advantage of the claw lost at the rear anchor for a tail wheel aircraft, as the force would pull to the side instead of upwardly?
Nils P on Oct 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The stakes are inserted at an inward angle at the end of each arm thus anchoring by a "claw" effect gripping the ground. Therefore the direction of pull/force is inconsequential.
