Lightweight pegs that give you confidence when pitching a tent or shelter on soft or sandy ground.

The shaft consists of four spines that create strength, and deliver holding power while a flat round head makes pushing the peg in with your hand easy, and gives a large surface to strike with a mallet.

Two attachment options are offered on the top, a hook for holding down tarp eyelets, and a loop for securely tieing a rope through.

  • Lightweight
  • Two attachment options on the head
  • Wide, strong shaft for use in soft ground

Without a Doubt

I have to re review these pegs after a few uses.
Ok without a doubt these sand pegs are a must for any"Pole guy ropes" and in many situations! they just do not move in sandy soils or even clay soils.
Not much use for pegging out a tent but they have been consistent in holding up awning guys without the need for re adjust.
I am sold on them. :)

Great pegs

My awning pole guy pegs kept pulling out during a windy setup then I remembered I bought these a few months ago from snowys and they were perfect! didnt budge at all in strong winds and heavy rain.
They dont need to be too long on sandy grass as the shorter ones grip fine,

Did not budge!

Worked a treat! Tried the steel pegs with no success in the sand but these worked perfectly.

We used these pegs 500mm for the corners of our tent and awning in soft sand. I had other sand pegs as well 500mm, the problem we had with these was that the heads a very small to hit and some even broke they are very flimsy and easily brake when removing. I think I will stick to the ones with a bigger hitting surface. But they where cheaper to buy than the other ones I have so I gave them a go.

G'day Corey,

You're right, you need to have pretty good aim with these pegs. Being a sand peg though, you can usually push them deep enough and they'll stand on their own while you knock them in deeper. Means you can have poor aim and not worry about snagging a finger - just might need to be a bit careful not to go too hard too early. I hope this helps, Laine :)

Worked a treat in bad weather. Tarp stayed tight. Ground got soft but pegs stayed in. Good investment. Thanks Snowys.

Great pegs!

Very happy with these pegs, especially for using in sand.


Fraser Island1 answer

I'm doing the great sandy walk on Fraser Island with a MSR Hubba Hubba NX. Will I need sand pegs or will the ground hogs supplied with the tent do the trick? If I need to upgrade how many pegs and which size do I need?

- Surry Hills(9 months ago)

G'day Jason,

I'd recommend that you purchase the Outdoor Agencies Aluminium Angle Peg which you can find here. These will still offer you traction in the sand, but will also pack up much smaller (as they are stackable) and lighter than the plastic pegs.

The MSR Hubba Hubba NX comes with 6x MiniGroundhog™ stakes, so I would recommend getting 6x Angle Pegs to replace these.

How many pegs?1 answer

Further to my last, Do I need to use the sand pegs on all the anchor points on the tent and fly or just some key points?

- ACT(10 months ago)

G'day Ryan, 

If you're camping directly on the beach then you'll need one for each corner guy rope, plus around the base so that would be 12, and if then if you're setting up the awning, you'll need a further 3. 

In total to cover yourself, go for 15 sand pegs for the Instant Up 10.

Suitable for a Coleman instant up 10P?1 answer

We are taking our Coleman instant up 10p tent to Fraser Island later in the year and am wondering if these pegs would be suitable to use with the tent up there?

- ACT(12 months ago)

G'day Ryan, 

None of us have specifically been to Fraser Island (we wish though - looks incredible!) but in general we find that the 300mm size Plastic Sand Pegs from Poles Apart are a good size for the Instant Up 10P tent.

Which sized sand pegs would work best for Caribee Guardian UV beach tent on a windy day?1 answer

Which sized sand pegs would work best for Caribee Guardian UV beach tent on a windy day?

- Docklands(1 year ago)

G'day Simone,

The sand pegs that come with the UV Guardian are going to do a good job when the wind picks up, as this shelter isn't very big or heavy. 

If you want to be extra careful though, the 300mm size Sand Pegs would be the next step up that will give you a little bit more stability.

Tent pegs1 answer

Hi I bought a Black Wolf Tanami Delta from you guys a while back and I need to replace the tent pegs. I was wondering if you could advise which pegs are best for the tent? Thanks

- Ferndale/WA(1 year ago)

G'day Mark,

We would actually recommend going for some steel pegs for your Black Woolf Tanami as they are the most durable. 

For the guy ropes, the Poles Apart Galvanised Steel Tent Pegs in the 225 x 6.3mm size would be best, and for the corners the Poles Apart Steel Tent Pegs in the 300 x 8mm size would be a great option.
