Pound-in post anchors

In the project "Weekend Remodel: How to Build an Arbor Bench" located on this site, the man is shown using pound-in post anchors on the video. Does anyone know where these may be purchased? I've not been able to locate them. Thank you!

These anchors, aka anchor spikes, can be found at the big box stores or on line. Around $16 each.
To pound them into the ground, you set a short 4x4x1', tighten the bolts and pound with a sledge hammer, making sure they don't rotate on you.

Home Depot and Lowes have them. You need to be carefull when driving them in the ground...Wouldnt take much to drive the spike through Utility lines.....Lowes have them over by the MailBox Isle
