Replace your scoop-shaped stakes with the Y-beam-shaped stakes in the MSR Groundhog Tent Stake Kit. Rugged 7000-series aluminum makes these stakes strong without adding unnecessary weight, and a small loop of nylon cord makes it easy to pull these stakes out of heavily compacted ground once it's time to pack up camp.

- Q & A
strong, top could be designed better
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This stake is very strong, but the top isn't designed well.
The stock stakes with my tent bend, these do not. They're really strong. My complaint is that the top isn't designed to catch the corner of the tent webbing very well. I can rig a cord to make it work or drive it at an angle and it works okay but it would be better if the stake had a disc shape on the top that extended out about a quarter inch around the shaft. A disc shape like this would also protect feet that step on the top of the tent stake. My daughter hurt her foot when she stepped on a stake in flip-flops and the stake struck her arch just to the side of the flip-flop's sole.
Get 8 packs instead, same price
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I wish I looked up the product details closely when I did my purchase. They also come in 8 pack instead of 6, and it is the same price. And unfortunately, my tent takes 8 of them to tie it down. Sigh...
But qualitywise, this is my second time buying them. They should be standard ground stakes for any tents, period.
