    Airventure tie down

    Guide says no "dog leash" type tie downs. What kind of tie downs are legal?

    All tie downs are "legal." The just don't recommend the ones that are the corkscrew dog ties with the triangular top. These are doubly bad as they don't hold in the soil well and the loop at the top deforms and comes open.

    I started with the standard "swing set anchors" years ago. I switched to "The Claw" and later to the StormForce. The triple spike hold well and the ones the EAA "hands out" at the show are just a piece of rebar.

    You can make a set easy enough. http://eaavintage.org/aircraft-tiedowns/

    Those are the plans. We made 3 plates with 3 holes each etc. They hold well and take some work to get back out.

    I made some of those myself. I can confirm both parts of Ricks assessment.
