Rain chains are fast gaining popularity worldwide and certain upcoming communities are making it mandatory for its residents to install a rain chain in place of an unattractive gutter downspout. The assorted cup and link style selection we show on our website gives our customer the option of choosing the perfect one which enhances the architectural accent of their home and at times our clients reach out to us to get our suggestions. We have been often asked how they can anchor the end of the rain chain to the ground, to prevent excessive swaying in the wind and perhaps eliminating the possible damage which may result from this. Time and again we have fielded this query, and realized we needed to fill this void and provide our customers with an option to address this.
Our design team developed a very functional rain chain anchoring stake for the aluminum rain chains as well as for copper rain chains. The swirl shaped heavy duty dark brown powder coated stake has a flat head to allow for a hammer to drive it into the ground or into bed rock or turf or grass – the options are unlimited. The swirl feature allows for better anchoring than the straight stake so we highly recommend the stake be carefully installed to ensure optimum functionality. The 12” copper loops attached to the stake are easy to attach to the last link of the rain chain, thereby anchoring it. We recommend the dark brown stake with copper links be paired with the copper rain chain.
