Customer reviews for Giffy Ballasts 4-pack

The Giffy Ballasting System was created to be an alternative to traditional tent anchoring solutions. It’s an anchoring system that is easy and safe, and gives you the confidence that your tent will stay in place on any surface.

Extraordinary Strength

With a weight of 660 pounds when filled with water, the Giffy Tent Ballast System provides more mounting strength than your typical 55-gallon barrel at 220 pounds. With the use of the ratchet strap to the bottom of the barrel, open tents can take up to 50 mph winds.

Easy Drainage and Transportation

Within minutes, your Giffy Tent Ballasting System can be drained of water by simply opening the water plug at the bottom of the barrel. When finished draining, they can be stacked in the box of a pickup truck and transported.
