I have seen this before here, you may have posted it but I am not sure.

Is the Claw hard to pull up and what is the "easy" way?

I learned about it from another person's post, but don't remember posting anything about it myself. I carry a claw hammer, it drives the spikes in and the claw on the hammer pulls the spikes up just like removing large nails. They are driven in at an angle for holding purposes but that doesn't create a problem for removing them. At first I hesitated about spending $50 just for two hold downs, when I already had the screw type, but now I'm glad I did and IMO they are a much more dependable system than the screw.

How far out from poles do they require? Concerned about fur buddies getting tangled up.

Ah, okay thank you.

Don't know of any special instructions for distance away from the post. I just use them in the same way I did the screws. I place them wherever I think is best. I like that they are low profile and a yellow color. I had marked my screws with orange duck tape for visibility because the screws do stick up and can be a trip hazard.

If you have a sun screen the trip hazard is all but eliminated.

Do all sunscreens need to slide into roller slot?

Don't think the Claw would work in the FL sand, but in other situations, it should be great. Be nice to be able to switch the nails for the screws and have a real universal anchor. I may just give it a whirl.
