I have some inexpensive nylon tarps that I use over my hammock and for other camping shelters. I have replaced the wire shepherd hook stakes with these aluminum V-stakes. The V-stakes weigh less, do not turn in the ground and are easy to get out when moving camp. They normally do not bend, except in very rocky ground they might bend when pounded in with a rock. I have four tarp sets and each one now has V-stakes.

Fairly decent stakes, but a bit light and may not hold up as well as sturdier stakes. They could use holes with strings in them so they can be pulled out easier too. But, for the price how could you go wrong.

This is my second set of these V-stakes as I just ordered another tent from STP. These stakes bend fairly easy and can be a bit sharp. Just make sure you do not cut your ropes and pound these all the way into the ground if you have anyone walking barefoot in the vicinity. Otherwise, they are extremely lightweight and great for the STP discounted price. You can never have too many stakes for car camping!
