The Mark1 BigBoy telescopic ground anchor, was a tough act to follow, but at Insight Security we never rest on our laurels and as a result of our continuous drive to develop the best motorcycle ground anchor, our new Big Boy has achieved the coveted SOLD SECURE MOTORCYCLE DIAMOND rating, making it a leader in the field.
It`s hardly surprising therefore that when Motorcycle News decided to publish a 12 page "Motorcycle Security Pull Out" that they asked us for some pictures of the Big Boy which they could use with their write up of the product.
Designed for security and convenience it will accommodate larger Sold Secure Motorcycle Gold security chains such our 19mm Protector Chains to provide an ultra-tough, heavy duty ground anchor lock point for Motorbikes and other valuable equipment.
The BigBoy Telescopic Ground Anchor is designed so that when installed, the top plate is flush with the surrounding ground surface so that it does not present a trip hazard and can be safely driven over. It is a heavy duty ground anchor specifically designed to work with heavy duty security chains, as are typically used to secure valuable motorcycles and other equipment.
To use it, simply grab the finger lift handle and pull the concealed telescopic section upward. Then slip your security chain through the 70mm diameter chain guide, which will take up to a 19mm sleeved chain such as our Sold Secure Motorcycle Gold Rated 19mm Protector Chain.
Designed to deliver ultra-tough security whilst being easy and convenient to use, the BigBoy heavy duty ground anchor is the only flush fit telescopic unit to accommodate Sold Secure Motorcycle Gold chains up to 19mm (other telescopic units with a 50mm chain guide will only take an 11mm chain at maximum, which cannot meet the Sold Secure Motorcycle Gold standard).
The BigBoy is manufactured from rugged, thick walled steel tubing (an inner and outer tube) with an 8mm thick top plate which accommodates the finger lifting handle.
Weighing in at a chunky 9.5kg, the BigBoy is built for security and manufactured to last.
To protect against corrosion or rusting, during its manufacture, it is passed through a multi stage full immersion corrosion protection process to ensure a tough electrophoretic coat finish to all internal and external surfaces (including the most difficult to reach crevices). In addition, all surfaces that will be visible post installation, are further protected with a tough, baked on black powder coat paint finish.
A rugged 16mm Stainless Steel Bolt prevents the telescopic inner section of the ground anchor from being removed once the unit is installed and also acts as a second anchor bar within the concrete (there is also an anchor plate at the base of the unit).
The telescopic section is fitted with a tubular steel chain guide and is protected against cutting and grinding attack by heavy duty construction including a solid steel 8mm thick top plate, thick steel walls and special internal anti-grinder protection.
The BigBoy heavy duty ground anchor is designed to be installed so that the top plate is flush with the surrounding ground surface, to prevent it being a trip hazard.
Installation is a simple three step process:
1. Excavate a hole 300mm deep (and 200x200 wide as a minimum).
2. Create a gravel bed at the bottom of the hole to aid drainage.
3. Position the anchor on the gravel bed, so that the top plate is level with the surrounding ground surface and pour in a good 3-2-1 concrete mix to secure it in place (the flat anchor plate at the base of the unit provides stability of the anchor as the concrete is poured in around it).
Important: Allow the concrete to fully cure before you start using your ground anchor.
Unlike Bolt-Down type Ground Anchors, BigBoy is ideal for installation into asphalt surfaces, paved or tiled areas, concrete paved block driveways, and unmade ground among others.
It also offers a practical alternative to embedded U-tube style ground anchors, which can collect water, leaves and other debris making them potentially messy to use, as well as presenting a risk of smaller feet or even animals from falling into them.
The BigBoy is the ultimate choice for anyone looking for a serious ground anchor that offers a high level of security coupled with convenience and easy usability, which are essential features for any heavy duty motorcycle ground anchor.
The heavy-duty materials used in manufacture and the weather protected finish will provide years of practical service, protecting your valuable bikes or other equipment, making this a really great investment

When I read the advert and it stated Big Boy I thought that’s the ground anchor for me. It’s to hold a trailer on our drive. I ordered it online and from that point on until it arrived 48hrs later (super quick) I was kept up to date on its progress and given a deliver time and name of the driver. I can’t recommend this product enough, it’s so heavy and chunky a real Big Boy indeed. It’s doing a perfect job and when it’s not in use it’s so discreet you’d hardly know it was there. The best part, no trip hazard when it’s retracted. Would I recommend insight security, 110% yes.
Looks like a really tough piece of kit. I have concreted it into the floor of my shed. It has reflective strips on the sides, when the centre is raised to help with visibility. I will have a small piece of wood to hold the centre raised whilst I am reading through the chain using two hands. I have a 19mm chain which is quite heavy and awkward to thread one handed. I hope that this piece of kit is not tested but I now feel confident that it will keep my bike secure. I am using an Almax chain.
