    Anchors for safety rope

    Hello - I'm,new to this site. I have cantilever coping and don't know which anchors to get or where to put them. I don't want to make a hole in my liner and don't want to drill into the concrete edge either...Any suggestions?

    Re: Anchors for safety rope

    Hi there,
    welcome to TFP,

    well, there really isnt much of an alternative to installing anchors either in the pool wall or the deck. I really wouldnt recommend putting anything through the liner.
    May not be much of a choice but to put a concrete anchor into the deck. Something like linked below, and then put a Eye Bolt in it to connect the rope to. The eye bolt cold be removed if you wanted to, leaving just the anchor in the deck. Thats about the only suggestion I can give you

    Re: Anchors for safety rope

    Definitively recommend the Loop-Loc style anchor from DD's post. You won't need anything else except maybe the brass masonry anchor collar that goes with it. The collar normally sits flush to the deck but you can use it by lifting it up when the anchor is extended up, to create a lip for the rope so it won't slip off. You may not need it but it would surely keep the rope on.
    You'll just have a loop in the rope that goes around the anchor. When not in use, the anchor just gets screwed down and is either flush with the deck (no collar) or sits up just slightly if the collar is in use.
