Figure 3 is a top plan view of the anchor. Figure 4 is a bottom plan view of a fragmentary section showing'the movable mem- Referring to the drawings in detail wherein like characters ofreference denote corresponding parts, the invention as shown comprises a pair of ground engaging members 10 and 11. The member 10 is of staple-like formation and includes a long ground engaging or ground penetratlng prong 12 and a relatively short ground'engaging or ground.
penetrating prong 13, a bar lserving to connect said prongs.
The member 11 may be constructed of a single length of material bent intermediate its ends to provide a hook 15. This hook is adapted to have attached thereto a rope or.
cable 16, which may represent a guy rope for a tent, awning or the like, or a guy rope or wire for a mast, or pole. The hook 15 is at the outer end of a short arm 17 which is normally arranged at an angle of substantially forty-five degrees with respect to the prong 12 of the member 10. is pivotally mounted upon the'bar 14 of the member 10 as shown at'18 and the opening.

The latch 21 holds the prongs 19 against movement toward the prong 12, while onwill hold the member 11' against pivotal movement in an opposite direction; This serves to lock'the members 10 and 11 against gagement of the arm '17 with the prong 12 l relative movement when not in use, or,'when the anchor is being initially forced into the ground.
The invention is susceptible of various changes in its form, proportions and vminor details of construct on and the right is herein reserved to make such changes asproperly I fall within the scope'of the appended claims.
Having described the invention whatris it claimed is '1. A ground an chor comprisinga stapler like ground engaging member having a long prong'and a relatively short prong space therefrom, a secondrelatively mova ground engaging member carried'bythe first mentioned member and 1 including ground penetrating prongs and a cable 'attaching,
hook rigid with said prongs and means as sociating said members'to force the penetrating prongs of the second mentioned member ble., 7 v
into the earth under tension of an attached 1- 1 cable.
' 2. A ground anchor comprising a staplelike ground engaging memberhaving-a long 7 dine -a second relatively. movable prong and a relatively short prong space therefrom, 7 ground engaging member carriedby the-first mentioned member and including spaced ground penetrating prongs positioned upon staple-like member and opposite sides of the a cable attachinghook rigid with said prongs andineans associating said members to force an v Theipenetrating.endsof the j prongs 19 extend' 'downwardly and toward that when a: pull or. tension.

3. A groundianchor. comprising a staplelike ground engagingmember terminating in'an integral long prong and also in i n. tegral relatively short prong spaced therefrom, ground penetrating prongs movably. connected With the staple-likemember and means to attach a cable to the anchor Whereby tension of said cable will force the prongs into the earth.
4. A groundv anchor comprising a staplelike ground engaging member having a long prong and a'r elatively short prong spaced therefrom, oppositely inclined outwardly extending prongs-mounted upon the staplerigidi'with said prongs and means'assoeiatingsaid members to force the penetrating prongs of the second? mentioned member into the earth under tension of an attached cable.
A. ground; anchor comprising a pair of ground engaging members,
and a cable attaching book one of said mem-- bers-including straight substantially parallel ground penetrating prongs and the other member including curved ground engaging prongs, means. to. attach. av cable to the referred to member and means to associate last the members whereby tension of an attached cable will force the prongs of one member into the earth. 3
6. A ground anchor comprising a pai of ground engaging members, each of said members including ground penetrating prongs, means to attach a cable to one of the members, means to: pivotally associate the members whereby tension otianiatt'ached cable Will force the prongs of one member intothe earth and means to lock the mem-' bers against relative pivotal movement.
