Default Have you seen this thing

Anybody see this before. Bored at work, cruising ebay. It def looks sturdier than a dog stake. I thought the idea of using two, one for the CL and one for a leash attached to the flagging line was smart.

In theary a great idea for sure. However, some beach umbrellas have this same corkscrew add=on. I for one have had some difficulty getting it secured in the sand if even in the sand at all.

Its sometimes the hard sand. With all the dredging they do around here, I have had trouble just getting the damn thing in. Call me weak.

Default Kite anchor

For about $7, a 4lb fluke anchor (Danforth style), with a short chunk of chain and a short piece of nylon line can be set and will hold in virtually any ground in this area short of poured concrete. Cheap, reliable and versatile. B
