Abstract : The invention relates to improvements in embedment anchors and more particularly to explosive driven light weight embedment anchors. An object of this invention is to provide in an embedment anchor a keying device which, while not materially affecting the trajectory of the anchor, would nevertheless, upon the application of force from the anchor cable, the key being pushed into the earth above, cause the anchor to rotate away from its position substantially parallel to the anchor cable, thereby providing a maximum resistance to withdrawal from the earth.
