INSTALLATION OPTIONS (Demonstration photos coming soon)
DIRECT EMBEDDED
Signposts can be driven directly into the ground without anchoring sections, using a drive cap with sledge or power equipment.
PNEUMATIC HAMMER
Installation can also be accomplished using a conventional pneumatic driving tool.
SELF-CONTAINED POWER EQUIPMENT
Anchor assemblies can be installed in any surface using self-contained power equipment.
MANUAL INSTALLATION
For manual installation, use a drive cap and sledge hammer to drive anchor assembly into soil, gravel or blacktop.

SURFACE OPTIONS (Demonstration photos coming soon)
BLACKTOP
When installing Telespar tubing in blacktop, the anchor assembly is driven through the blacktop into the subsoil from ground level. All other aspects of the blacktop installation are the same as installing the Telespar system in soil
CONCRETE
Telespar posts can be installed in concrete, using a pneumatic hammer or concrete drill to break through the surface. The anchor assembly is driven to within 1" of the surface to allow attachment of the signpost. If a flush installation is desired, clearance should be recessed on two sides to clear the bolt for the signpost connection.
GRAVEL OR SOIL

Installation of Telespar posts in gravel or soil is accomplished by driving the anchor post assembly into the ground, leaving 1" to 2" above the surface. The signpost is then inserted into the anchor assembly approximately 6" to 8" and bolted in place.

TELESPAR INSTALLATION.....................................Simple, Fast, Safe
(Demonstration photos coming soon)
1) Drive a minimum 30" piece of 12 gauge Telespar (anchor) into the soil until only 1 - 2 inches are left exposed. For a 2- piece anchor, use an 18" piece of tubing for a sleeve, one size larger than the anchor. Make sure the anchor and sleeve holes are aligned. 2) Attach the sign to the post at the desired height using drive rivets or bolts.
3) Insert the signpost, which is one size smaller than the anchor, about 6-8 inches into the anchor base .
4) Bolt the signpost to the anchor with a corner bolt.
The corner bolt takes up fit tolerance, concentrates fastening tension on only one corner of the tubing and prevents distortion of opposite tube walls which can occur when conventional through-bolts are over-tightened. If these simple steps are followed, an impacted post will break just above anchor, or possibly at bumper height. To repair, simply remove the corner bolt, pull the post stub out of the anchor and replace it with a new post.
