Simple and light!

I bought these to use hammock camping for setting up my tarp in "porch-mode". They work well for this- the little rubber ends have grippers on them, so the d-rings on the tarp stay over them solidly and I don't have to worry about slipping. They are nice and solid- don't bow under pressure and grip the ground well in a variety of conditions and surfaces. Fold down small enough they don't stick out the sides of my backpack when horizontal on the outside, and I can put them inside vertically if I want. Aren't especially long when assembled, but I generally set up my tarp fairly low and close to the hammock. I think someone that likes their tarp high may be better off using trekking poles
