Anchoring your dock is the most important step in building and installing your new CanadaDocks system. It is a requirement to have sufficient anchoring to ensure that your dock is stable in the water. Unlike other docks, ours are designed to be as lightweight as possible, which make it easier to install and remove each year. Although, the lighter the dock, the more susceptible it is to be moved in a large storm. Therefore, anchoring your dock properly is one of the most important steps and best way to protect your investment.
EXPERT TIP: When you remove your dock for the winter, keep the chains and anchors in the water. Tie a piece of a pool noodle to the end of the chain and it will be easy to grab and reattach next spring.

The 150lb Concrete Anchor is essential to easily secure your dock. Simply attach chains from your anchor to your dock, and you’re all set.
Anchoring your dock at the furthest point from shore is REQUIRED. The amount of anchoring is determined based on the currents and waves of the body of water.
The 150 lb Concrete Anchor can be used for both floating and standing docks.
