Installation Guidelines for TAPCO's V-Loc Anchoring Systems

From products shots to real life on location examples.

"...the real savings is when you set a post in a V-loc in concrete ... the post can be replaced within minutes, without it can take over 2 hours to chip out and re-pour concrete..."
Jeff Denney
City of Gold Beach, Oregon, Public Works Supervisor

"I have been using the V-Loc mounting system for single and multiple mailboxes for 6 years now ... On average the V-Loc system takes about half the time versus wood posts ... simple, looks clean, and is quick to use."
Jeff Petersen
Columbia County, Oregon, Signs and Markings Maintenance Technician

V-Loc® is the state of the art, reusable breakaway anchor, allowing you to replace posts literally in minutes. It anchors posts for signs, mailboxes and other applications. The V-Loc® anchor socket can be installed in concrete, asphalt or dirt safely by one person in a matter of minutes either by hand or power driver. Once the V-Loc® anchor is installed, you simply insert your post and drive in the patented wedge, locking the post into the anchor without the need for any additional hardware. V-Loc fins require no concrete in soil. It's simple, solid and safe. The only reusable, flush-to-the-ground breakaway anchor!

V-Locs are specified as the anchoring system of choice for many municipalities and State DOTs. Choose what the pro's do.

Costly to fix non-breakaway anchors

Never Replace an Anchor Again!

V-Loc's® unique, patented, yield and release system allows posts to release or break away at ground level, so errant vehicles pass over the anchor, minimizing the potential for punctured tires and vehicle roll-overs. After a knockdown the socket is re-usable, requiring only the replacement of the locking wedge and post. You save re-installation and money on every knockdown.

Stability for all situations

The strong V-Shaped steel fins hold the socket securely in the ground. V-Loc's patented design resists movement, both from wind vibration and in the event of a knockdown.

Crash tested & approved!

V-Loc® is NCHRP 350 approved, AASHTO recommended & Federal Highway Administration - Clear Zone Compliant. V-Loc's flush-to-the-ground anchor allows sign posts to breakaway or release cleanly at ground-level, with a 360 degree impact zone.
