Run two galv. steel cables under the slab using a >12' pole/pipe from HD and strap the thing down. Then clean and return the pole.
If you use a pipe you can force water into it so it digs its own path. If you hammer it in you may need a comealong to extract it.
2nd option, anchor a cable with a strong spring to something else with the cable too short to allow the tearing. Bury the cable so it's not ugly.
This is what we do with beach umbrellas and a screw in dog anchor so nobody gets impaled by our umbrella.
BTW, your [SIZE=3] is killing me.
