Anchors

The anchor diagram is used whenever the load is split and taken by 2 parts of the system. A two-point anchor one example of this but the diagram can be used to calculate the load on bipod legs, highlines and many other situations.

Note
When the force is shown as a negative number it represents a compressive force such as in a tripod leg rather than a tensile (pulling) force.

Why can't you calculate a three point anchor?
