I wouldnít waste time or money
trying to repair a possible knockoff CQR
because you can buy a genuine used one for next to nothing, plus they donít perform even close to what many newer anchors do. Iím sold on my SPADE but as the anchoring
threads that Ann mentions show, there are several other good options as well. Your CQR
will make a good conversation starter as a sculpture if carefully and thoughtfully placed in your flower garden.
