I purchased these in April 2020 to stake a small tent. They are too short and are worthless in sandy soil or soil that is not "clayish" enough to hold them in the ground - even with the spiral. The stakes come out at the slightest wind.
However, I found a better use for them and ordered another set together (so now own 8 stakes in total. I have had several home property surveys done over the year to square away where to build a fence, how far over to build a shed etc. Surveyors ALWYAS use cheap wood as stakes which disintegrate or are pulled out by my neighbor on one side. I had some "plastic type' black stakes that do not disintegrate the last time I had a survey (6 years ago) and put a red poly type string on each stake and buried them across from something in my yard so I can find them again if needed. The black stakes are difficult to find after the string which is still on them faded to gray. My neighbor is on vacation so I went out there and found one and tied an orange string to it to find the other 4 in the front yard. (4 in back yard also) 8 on 1 side of my house in total). Anyway, I used these red aluminum stakes in the ground next to the original black stakes and put a small gray rock (painted bright pink underneath) over each red stake. Looking at the yard, no one can tell there is anything out of place and even if the rocks get moved, it is easier to find the stakes because they are red and never fade or disintegrate.
So, while these stink as tent stakes, they are great to use as property stakes.
These are very high quality specialized stakes and recommended for very sandy conditions. I purchased 2 sets of these for a camping trip to White Sands National Monument, where I expected high winds and lots of loose sand (duh). We pitched our tent (Hilleberg Nallo 2) in the slightly packed sand in between the dunes and these stakes performed perfectly.
Pros: - Their long length (9 13/16”) and spiral shape gives them more friction (in all directions) in loose sand compared to standard stakes - Nice red anodized finish makes them easy to clean and see
Cons: - They don’t come with a stuff sack, and due to their length they will not fit nicely in the bag with your old stakes. I’m still looking for a stuff sack that fits them nicely. - They are more than twice the weight of normal Y-stakes (34g vs 13-16g), which means you don’t simply want to bring them for every trip, if not absolutely necessary. - They are a bit pricy.
So overall they are highly recommended for when the conditions are suitable, but they are a bit too bulky and heavy to bring on every camping trip (hence 4/5 stars).
Just what I needed, and worked super well! We got caught in a hurricane during beach camping and had to take shelter in a more heavy duty tent, leaving my tent with just a few light bags inside. I thought all our stuff was done for, but these stakes worked like a charm! They stayed put and the tent was in place and intact by the time the storm stopped.
The only issue is I wish they sold them in packs of different sizes-- my tent takes 5 stakes so I had to order two sets and now I have extras I don't know what to do with.
