Spikes aluminium tent pegs
Super strong, long aluminium pegs for hard packed grounds
£11.00 Was: £12.00
If you are off somewhere serious or have a large family tent that you need to pin down, then these pegs are the longest and strongest we sell.
At 33 g each they are not the lightest but even one for each corner of your tent will make a huge difference. They are tough enough to nail into breeze blocks, so most French campsites should be okay.
- Weight per peg: 33 g
- Pack size: 6 pegs
- Aircraft grade 6061 aluminium alloy
- Spikes 22 cm long and 8 mm in diameter
- Red Accessory cord to aid removal from the ground
- Watch out for solid rock though as that can still bend them.

A long time ago we bought a Tentipi. Lovely tent, but the supplied pegs are formed from flat metal sheet. Great when the ground is soft. but not for the average UK campsite. So we got some Spikes. And they're perfect for the job. Easily hammered in, strong and solid in use, and the red cord is usefull for getting 'em out again. Especially when the ground is frozen solid and you need to use your ice axe for peg extraction...
The only downside is that the head is screwed to the main spike, but you do get into the habit of checking that they're tight before use.
Nice red colour as well.
Spikes, great for continental touring
These are amazing. An absolute must if you are touring down the Adriatic coast and for use where the ground contains a lot of stones. The only weak point is the cap is screwed onto the stem and if you hit this obliquely then the thread can snap off. In fairness I have only broken one.
