The utility companies have nice attachments for adding
guys to their single loop anchors. Another approach would
be to clamp a plate or angle iron with an appropriate size hole
to the rod. Or, make a right angle attachment using boom to
element style construction with 4 U bolts and a flat plate.
A technique I use is to make a strap with small loops in each
end, looped through the anchor eye, using 1/8 inch 7 strand
galvanized steel wire (the old 6/18 guy wire). A nylon harness
could also be used.
