Y Beamstent pegs

Y-shaped, strong, lightweight aluminium tent peg

Y Beams tent pegs

  • Google+



Y-Beams offer better holding power, are lighter and an awful lot stronger than many standard hook style tent pegs. This is our all rounder and the cheapest way to upgrade any tent from cheap skinny pegs.

The Y cross section adds strength without the weight penalty. They can be a little uncomfortable to place in hard ground but they are strong enough to take the hits from a camping mallet or random stone!!

Best pegs I've ever used!!

I picked up a set of these Y beams in January 2015 on the advice of a friend as my previous pegs were coming loose in windy conditions. My tent is not free standing and relies on the guy lines and pegs to stay standing. After using these pegs a number of times I can honestly say they are the best pegs I've ever used. My last trip to the Scottish highlands we had 2 particularly windy nights and the tent was stood just as taut as when it was set up the night before. They are very easy to get into the ground and none of them have bent since purchasing them in January 2015. Even after being pushed extremely tough frozen ground.

The only problem I did have was getting them back out of the ground but I ended up using a spare peg through the string loop for leverage and they came out easy enough. In hindsight this isn't actually a problem but them doing their job - extremely well!

In my experience you can pay a small fortune for a set of good tent pegs but thanks to these Alpkit Y-beams I've realised you really don't need to.

Lightweight, sturdy, useful

OK, I don't use these as tent pegs, but I use 4 of them hammered in at angles as a dog tether with the dog's lead threaded through the top loops. The standard screw dog stakes are too heavy. He's a fairly hefty hound but hasn't broken free despite provocation from rabbits and squirrels.

Great Value

Excellent pegs!! Although not the lightest pegs out there, I think they provide the perfect balance of weight, strength, and holding power. I always carry 4 Y beams for my hammock tarp corners, and titanium pins for everything else. Compared to other Y pegs I've seen or used these are stronger than most and just about the least expensive I've seen.

Another Alpkit Bargain

These are cheaper than popular and very similar MSR groundhog stakes but every bit as good. Alpkit wins yet again! I did bend one of mine quite badly out of shape so I would advise being careful with them when pushing them in but this is probably the case with any lightweight pegs. This is the only reason I have deducted a star.
