Wow, more than $10 each with postage, they need to be very good. Maybe coach screws from Bunnings etc would do the job cheaper.

BTW a link would be helpful.

Mate what are you pegging down ? I can tell you from experience that old style pegs designed for where your going are fine.Big sand pegs for beach or steel pegs elsewhere. We have been in big blows a fair few times and the pegs if big enough have been the last thing to let go, Lost a tent once, pegs fine poles let go.

Those would add another half hour to your set up time and with no true attachment point for your spring/guy rope will probably end up dropping off in the gusts.

These just look like expensive coach screws. I wonder how much 4 150 or 200 mm coach screws cost from your local hardware store.?

Was going to say the same about Broome's soil 865. I had to use a water jet to get my tent pegs in but the caravanners used their cordless drills to get their pegs in.

BTW you can now buy coach screws/bolts up to 1m long these days they are used to join beams together.

Another vote for Large coach screws.
I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

Cheers Dodg.

A Lightning Ridge park loans you a drill with a masonry drill bit to make a hole for your pegs. I wonder if coach screws would work there??

To quote from the web page -
One of the features of the pegs is that they do not need to be driven all the way into the ground, if they won’t go any further, it means they are well anchored, and ready to do their work.
Something sticking up like that is a tripping hazard. I always hammer my pegs down to ground level.

Aldi had a box of about 20 for $15.00 with the driver bit included. I bought a box to try them and they work great.

I was seriously looking at these but on some more research I tried a 200mm coach screw with a mudguard washer and a S hook to attach the rope to all up a lot cheaper and use a drill to drive it in once in it isn't coming out.

What do you mean by "once in it isn't coming out?" Do you mean it holds well or couldn't you remove the screw with your drill?

Hey Peter D

No it comes out if you screw it out but it wont come out if you don't, it wont rip out of the ground.
I now don't use tent pegs. I have 200mm 150mm and 100mm coach screws to meet all my needs.
