Rated 5 out of 5 by from Didn't budge in 30mph winds in the sand. Bought these for a beach camping weekend in S. Texas. When we arrived, we were met with 20-30mph winds, making setup a bit...fun. Once the tent was pitched and stakes set (used these on corners of the rainfly and MSR Ground Hogs for the rest), I was afraid the howling winds would pull everything loose. Needless to say, I woke up the next morning to a few loose Ground Hogs, but the sand stakes hadn't moved even a centimeter. These things work great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holds stuff down in high wind at the beach! I was excited to try these out on my new Big Agnes beach tent after we had some gear get destroyed by the wind on our last beach trip. These stakes were great in high winds and a storm that came through mid-day. The stakes were easy to put in and held really well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for the beach I recently bought these and they are identical to another brand and set that I have been using for two years. Great for the sand and when installed correctly they will not pull up even with wind and rain.

What are the keyholes for?

Asked by: CampMentor
The holes in the stakes are used to link the stainless steel cable when using in the snow or sand to secure your tent even more. There is an image at the top of the stake showing the 90 degree angle of the stake and cable.

The weight specification for the Small size stakes is 1.5 oz - is this number the weight per stake, or the entire package?

Asked by: Kris
​The weights we list in "Specs" are for a single ToughStake in each particular size.
