I'm looking for sand stakes to hold down my big duck 1 shelter.
I need 8 total and don't want to break the bank.
Considering a DIY option with angle iron. 12 or 16 inch stakes... Steel (strong enough but heavy) or 1/8 in aluminum (should work but durability?)... I would rather just find the right deal for some and not break the bank though.
Needs: Tough enough to not break when you find that hard Idaho rock dirt mix from time to time at a river camp. Enough surface area to hold well in sand. Needs to have a spot for a cam strap to attach (loop through).
Any ideas on what you guys are running for shelters or boat stakes are welcome.
I think i'm going to try these rock buster stakes... they are pretty cheap and have heard good things from a few buzzards about them.. then i might add in a few tough stakes for my main ridge line poles..
+1 in the Rock Busters. I can pound them in with the dead blow and use the rope loop to retrieve them. I can't remember if I added the rope loop or if it came with it but it is designed for one. The top allows for a few rope wraps if needed. I always pound them in deep and tighten everything with a truckers hitch. I bought a dozen after a gust undid an hours worth of work on a shade tarp.
