You're never going to find it because there are so many variables in anchoring that nobody can make that kind of guarantee.
We feel that we chose the best all-around anchor design available today but we're not so naive to think that it will never drag or never fail to reset if it's pulled out of the bottom.
We feel its deisgn and operating principle minimizes the chances of these things happening, but there is no way in hell we would bet on it never happening.
When we anchor, unless the conditions are so calm that a soup can full of rocks would hold the boat, we assume the anchor will drag or come out and not reset. So we plan accordingly. We use an anchor alarm and we have at least one written our plan for every bad occurance we can think of so we don't have to try to figure out what to do at zero-dark-thirty when we're tired.
There is, however, one anchor type that will do exactly what you want every time. It's called a Dock.
