Expanding Pole Key Anchor.
The Chance Pole Key can be used to reinforce poles in soft soils where the load is unbalanced and the pole must resist the load. However, it is recommended that Pole Keys only be used where a proper guy wire and guy anchor cannot be used, since a guy and anchor will generally provide more resistance to lateral movement. The Pole Keys will not withstand the same load, or perform as well a proper guy and anchor. The Chance Pole Key can be installed next to the distribution pole butt to help hold it in place against light overturning loads such as service drops, prevailing winds or small line angles.
