Automatic Dead-Ends, Guy Anchors & Guy Markers

Automatic Dead End Connector


MacLean Power Systems has not allowed the #5202 or #5204 to be used on ropes courses for several years.

Now, Hubbell Power Systems/Fargo GDE5202 for 3/8" cable and the GDE5204 for 1/2" cable are no longer allowed to be used on ropes courses.


Please see this notice from Hubbell.


We still have a few 3/8" Automatic Dead Ends in stock if you need them for an application other than a ropes course.                           

$27.00 each 3/8" while supplies last

Guy Marker or Guy Guard

Guy Markers (Guy Guards) are made of high impact UV stabilized plastic and provides durable, high impact, protection for exposed utility pole guy wires, dead end fittings, and anchor rods.

One end is fitted with a stainless steel clamp and bolt for attachment.

 1-1/2" Diameter X 95" Long


We have cut down the 8' Guy Guard to 95" to get around the oversize package surcharge added by UPS.

No-Wrench Ground Guy Anchor

Hot Dip Galvanized

Forged-eye No-Wrench screw anchors are designed to be installed either manually or with power driven equipment. Used to anchor guy cables to the ground. Holding strength varies depending on soil conditions, installlation procedures and alignment. See the chart below. 


For small jobs, like the bottom of a backyard Cargo Net we have added a 1/2" X 30" Rod with a 3" Helix.
