The Deadman

Create a safe winch anchor point in the ground, around rocks or trees!

The Deadman™ Earth Anchor™ (patent pending) is the world’s most versatile off-road recovery anchor, capable of anchoring to just about anything Mother Earth throws your way. Lightweight and easily stowed under your seat, it’s the self-recovery anchor that’s always with you, allowing you to explore with confidence! 

While the Deadman loves to go around hugging trees or rocks, he is also an extremely capable ground anchor as well. Instead of debating whether to carry a heavy metal ground anchor, the Deadman becomes the ground anchor that’s a permanent member of your recovery kit. 

With a Minimum Breaking Strength (MBS) ranging from 16,600 - 66,400 after assembly (depending on its configuration), the Deadman will be the strongest member of your recovery kit. We've gone to great lengths to ensure we get every last ounce of strength out of these American made, Class VII polyester industrial slings. The Deadman won't let you down!

The Deadman Bodybag: After the recovery, clean up the evidence with the Deadman Bodybag. Designed specially to hold the Deadman Earth Anchor, the bag is large enough to carry your soft shackles, and some gloves, pretty much everything you need for a straight forward self-recovery. Strap it to your roll bars or throw it in the back of your rig & go!

Made from industrial grade love, PVC vinyl, and a MOLLE system for attaching additional gear. Also there is a velcro patch for you to rep your favorite brands!


Ok, anything you bury in the ground as a winching anchor point is defined as a deadman anchor. So yes, we named our product The Deadman in honor of this, however its versatility both above and below ground has led us to refer to it as an Earth Anchor. You see, the Deadman is not simply a ground anchor: it can anchor to a tree, a rock, or the ground unlike anything else. Most anchors only work in one scenario, meaning you must carry multiple anchors to ensure preparedness. The Deadman’s unique design allows it to be extremely capable in all three scenarios, making it the most versatile off-road anchor ever.


Our primary design objective was to create something small and lightweight that could be easily buried - and be retrieved without more digging - for self-recovery in areas where there is nothing else to attach a winch to. What we came up with surprised us! It weighs less than 5lb, fits underneath a seat, and works to anchor to so much more than just the dirt. Because it’s a soft product, it can also be used around trees and rocks with increased safety relative to traditional anchors... and we keep finding new uses for the Deadman all the time. For instance, because it's made from industrial grade, non-stretch polyester webbing (same as a tree strap), it can also be used as a 15' winch extension. We've also found it useful as a ground mat, a fluid catch, a shade, and more - we're looking forward to what ideas our customer community comes up with as well!
