Solved the problem By Anonymous 5 13th August 2014

I had a cage for several years (purchased before ground sockets were available) which had sunk by up to 10" in places and acquired a serious tilt. The ground sockets and foot plates have enabled me to straighten it. I was surprised at how large and sturdy they were. The pictures do not give a good idea of the size. Very pleased with the result.

Ground Sockets By Peter Davies 5 27th March 2014

I had used the ground sockets to put up my fruit cage. They improved anchoring and made it reasonably easy for me to erect the cage (20 feet X 20 feet) single handed. I wanted to put up some raspberry support frames inside the cage. The soil is soft to a considerable depth and I wasn't happy that the frame would stand in strong winds so I decided to try using the steel ground sockets. They worked a treat and the raspberry frame work is much more stable. The also made putting up the frame much easier. I could assemble each support with the cross bars and then simply drop it into the ground socket.

These ground sockets make putting cages up a piece of cake and I would thoroughly recommend them!
