Bought these canopy stakes on Amazon for a last minute wedding reception. Most other canopy's at the wedding had cement gallon cans with cord attaching to the canopy legs, which works great for payment, however these are designed to anchor into dirt, grass, sand etc... and present little trip hazards as my canopy had holes in the feet that the stakes went through and into the ground. Highly recommend for anchoring canopies on soil, sand, ect. There was a steady breeze at the reception and the stakes held fast. They shipped fast and worked great.
