Bass Pro Shops Folding Grappling Anchors
These work very nicely. Hold the boat very securely. I have a fairly light boat to begin with so I'm not sure how well this works on a heavier boat, but on my little boat it worked great. Very happy, highly recommend.

Folding Grapple Anchor
The folding grapple anchor is small and compact yet has excellent holding power. The sliding collar that holds the grapples open or closed works but could be a bit tighter so it will stay in place. The galvanizing looks to be adequate. I would recommend adding a 2ft piece of chain to the anchor so that the grapples stay parallel to the bottom and grabs quickly. This will also prevent wear of the rope as it is dragged across sharp rocks , zebra mussels etc. It stores very easily due to its size.

much bigger than i expected
After reading other reviews I decided on the 3lbs anchor, for my 10' fishing kayak and it was just too big. It would work great on a Jon boat or somthing better than a kayak. It looks like it is built very well

Works fine for our little fishing boat
The style and weight work well for out 12' aluminum fishing boat. The 'locking' mechanism is a bit sloppy and the anchor will unfold unexpectedly if not stored securely. All in all a good deal for the price.
