Step by Step Instructions
Dig a hole about 12” deep.
Mix up your concrete following the instructions on the bag. Depending on the size of your hole, you may not need the entire bag.
Fill your hole with the wet concrete leaving about 4” from the top of the hole.
Cut a small hole in the bottom of your plastic cup, and insert your eye bolt and thread on one nut, then the washer, and then the other nut.
Place the cup with the bolt in the center of your wet concrete and fill in the remaining space with wet concrete to the top of the hole.
Let the concrete cure. You may need to place a heavy object, like a board or shovel, over the top of the cup to keep it from floating up.
