Collect a layer of gravel over the plate to a depth of 4 inches. Rake to keep the pad level. Install the storage sheds over the gravel. Install a shed anchor in each corner of the shed. The anchor should lean slightly away from the shed. Fishing wire rope included with tie kit over rails under shed to the opposite corner. Attach the cable to the anchor with the hardware provided.
