Rated 3 out of 5 by from It holds well but the head deforms easily. It holds well, but the head deforms quite easily if you are banging on in it to place vertically. If you aren't banging hard on it then the snow probably isn't hard enough for the picket to hold a fall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Product, does what it should. This snow picket works as a snow picket should. It's a difficult thing to mess up. After all, it's just a piece of aluminum with holes. That said, it is well made and does it's job.
