    The Perfect Stake?

    I just got some Dutchware Flea Stakes!
    I have been waiting a while for these to come in stock.
    It is snowy and the ground is frozen, so I couldn't wait and had to play around with them using some Styrofoam.
    The cordage is micro cord from Atwood Rope (love that stuff)

    I made a very poor video using my phone too.

    Can't wait to try them out with the tarp!

    Whoa. I've never seen these before. I'll also be watching to see how well they work and stand up to your abuse.
    Oooh, shiney! What does THIS button do?

    Ahhhhhh ha!

    I was interested in these but passed due to the size. I wasn't sure it would work for me. If it was a Y or V shape, maybe. I just run into loose soil so often. But I could be wrong. I may just try one next time I place an order.

    Wait, did I just stumble upon the origination of these while researching stakes for winter?

    LOL well I'm stumped. I've been mulling over it a couple of days and can't figure out how these are superior to a shepherd hook and MSH.

    Haha I was going to mention you by name, but wanted to wait and see. There were two runner-ups.

    Oh, that's what I figured... it took every bit of willpower I could muster to refrain this long..... But I know, peeps like this stuff.
