The Folding Anchor 1.5 lbs is a compact folding anchor that is easy to store when not in use. The four flutes fold out for when being deployed and can be locked into place with a locking collar. The collar also locks the flutes into the folded position when the Folding Anchor 1.5 lbs is not in use. When deployed, the flutes are capable of holding a kayak in most winds, currents and bottom types.

The 1.5 pound folding anchor works well with my 14 foot Wilderness-Tarpon in windy (less than 15 mph) conditions. It's been used in muddy, rocky and sandy bottoms. It's compact when folded and product quality is also good.
Great size but doesn't hold well on sandy bottoms. The next size up works better.
I love the size of the anchor. I'm not, however, a fan of the Clevis attachment. I didn't check it and the second time I used it, the threaded pin loosened up and the anchor feel off. I'd suggest if you buy this anchor that you hook it directly to your rope with a carabiner hook.
In my case, the rough cast design resulted in a product which fails to lock in the folded position - rather disappointing. It would cost more to return it than it is worth.
