I now live in an apartment with small garden. I got permission to setup 1 satellite dish with the maximum size of 90 cm. I am not allowed to put it on the outside wall of the house where I live. As an temporary setup I am using tri-foot that I did buy for satellite dishes. But it does not hold up in strong wind and it is unable to carry dish with the size of 85 cm properly in my opinion.

Here are the pictures of the setup as it is today.

Yes, a picture of the installation site would be helpful. What kind of pictures are you trying to upload? Try a smaller size. Failing that, post a non-active link to a picture and an admin will be able to reattach it for you.

Anyway... You can get a ground mount to bolt into the paving slabs or concrete a pole into the ground (if you are allowed). There are also non-penetrating mounts which simply sit on the ground with paving slabs on top.

I did scale down the images. Where too big it seems. This is my setup as it is today.

OK - yeah, my advise from post #2 still stands. You could get something like eBay item number 271051016403 and put paving slabs or sand bags on top to hold it all down.

I have a different type of Patio Mount which is extremely robust and can be obtained for around £25.

Below are two pics showing it with its customary TD110 demounted.

I can confirm that failing to weigh down the slab with two 25kG bags of sand is foolhardy (It fell over once and broke the LNB arm)

I found the same type of mount on Amazon. But this are bit expensive and I am broke. So this might have to wait a little if there are not any easier solutions to this issue.

Thanks for the help.

Thanks for this. This is actually better solution for me. As it is cheaper and more easy to setup for me. But I can get an sidewalk slap anywhere cheap I think. I can just dig them down into the ground to make them more stable. Rather then using sandbags or solutions like that.

Now I just need to find an store in Denmark that sell those things.
