New Product - Blue Screw

Mentioned this in another post. Saw it on Creek to Coast and have seen them at Anaconda.

Apparently good for sand. You wouldn't replace every peg with them but would be useful on key tie down ropes in windy situations.

Information here.

yeah i used 4 of them on each end of my tent over at Morton. They were insane, very hard to get them out, i would recommend them. Iam thinking of selling mine due to me not going beach camping and iam moving house . If anyones interested in 4 pm me.
Thanks

Saw the add in On The Road. Look interesting. Just wondering about using them in very hard ground (the type where you bend them when trying to bang them in).
Will have a closer look when I get to BCF or Bunnings next time

The "galvanised" version is what you see many of our telegraph poles attached to :grin:

Michael I can't remember but they weren't cheap. I've seen them at anaconda so I might give them a ring.

I made a few up when we were in W.A. although they are more like 'pig tails. As has been said ... hard to get out.

Well I would consider them reasonably priced and definitely comparable price wise with 'normal' pags
