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.
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.
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 :)
Tough durable and good price.
Good product, good service & fast delivery.
Worked a treat in bad weather. Tarp stayed tight. Ground got soft but pegs stayed in. Good investment. Thanks Snowys.
Very happy with these pegs, especially for using in sand.
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?
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.
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?
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.
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?
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?
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.
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
We would actually recommend going for some steel pegs for your Black Woolf Tanami as they are the most durable.
