I don't see well so I have had the difficulty of locating my dropped titanium tarp stakes. I noticed BPL now Coates the end of theirs in orange. My solution was to purchase 11/64" heat shrink tubing located in the electrical department of the hardware store.
I cut a 1" section of the tubing at put in on the hook end of my stake and applied heat. The tubing comes in different colors. I couldn't get the tubing to register on my scale. However lost stakes lighten my pack weight and wallet weight
Hope this cheap and easy solution saves someone else some money in the future.
