Works like a charm. Bought it as a back up tie down system and have had to use it twice the first week.

Fine product, easy to use. Have bought three, for three different locations. Would buy again and recommend to anyone that is considering buying this item.

This is the second set of tie downs I’ve bought for use in two locations. The Claw works wonderfully and I’ve been very happy with it.

Looks well made. One addition would be a clip to allow you to easily remove the rope from the claw and attach it to an airport tie down system

It’s a bit expensive and a bit heavy but it works well in the rocky soils common in new England which can be a problem for screw anchors. I need only 2 so spares are less of a problem. The reported breakages of anchors are a concern, however.

Nice kit, works good, but I also had one of the nails heads come off. Whats the deal there? No spare parts available at Spruce for this item.

Used this at the Cessna 150-152 Club Fly-In and at AirVenture. My only complaint was that when pounding in one of the spikes the head came off. That was the bad news. The good news is that it happened at AirVenture so I just went to the Claw booth in the vendor area with the head of the nail and showed it to them. They knew exactly what happened and gave me a new spike on the spot.

Q: Regarding the Claw tie down system: How long are the stakes or pins? What is the claw diameter fully open?

Each stake is approximately 10-1/2 inches long. Fully extended diameter is approximately 21 inches.

Q: How much does the Claw aircraft tie down kit weigh?

Total weight of the Claw kit is 8 lbs.

Q: Does the Claw Aircraft tie down system work on snow or on ice?

With any tie down system, it is only as good as the soil you put it in. The system works fine in frozen ground but not in pure ice. As for snow, performance will depend on the type of soil and the saturation level.
