    Don't know what it weighs but it only has 100# breaking strength. It is two thirds the size of a dollar bill. For a $1.50 each when you buy 40? I think I'll pass.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Oh that's a good one!
    Here is there website.
    I like the design of several of the styles. The stake one is cool and so is the tail stake.
    These are probably heavy but I dig the design.
    I think we could easily make one out of aluminum that is a buckle.
    This info needs to make it's way to the Fig 9 thread!!!!
    Great find.

    Actaully I think we came up with something similar but would have to check that thread. It was just using a buckle sideways. Not sure if we used that hitch though.
    They also have some future products that are interesting.

    Yeah after looking at the website, some of the future products look interesting.

    The monster tent stake reminded of some of the stuff grizz was trying to do with a spreaderless bridge.

    I'll bet this stake could hold well.
