Good and sturdy. While I was gone one day my neighbours decided to play badminton I’ve our adjoining 4 ft fence, the husband hopes over our fence ( I have cameras ;) ) and proceeds to move all the items in my garden out of his way and trips on this ground spike in the process, at this point the husband (quite a large fellow) begins to tug, pull, and dead lift this spike out of my garden (I assume he had no idea it was a screw 😂 ) to no avail. After a good two minutes he declares the ground spike the victor and now knackered and sweating continues to loss the game of badminton to his wife spactacularly.
Summary: if it can stop that fat man it can stop your dog 👍🏻 🇬🇧
I have always doubted these but finally decided to use one to take my dog away camping for the first time. My Dog is a strong 33kg chocolate lab and there is no way he was going to get this out the ground. The plastic cap is a great feature that stops the screw from being pulled side to side and loosening. The only way a dog will pull this out is if the ground is too soft.
It’s more expensive than some others in the market but you pay for what you get. It feels very secure and robust. On the one occasion my dog made a dash for it when camping, her harness broke (not ideal) whilst the stake remained securely in the ground. An excellent product which was perfect for our camping trip.
We’ve only used it once but it went into the clay at the edge of the stream easily (see pic) and removed easily but still held his pulling well!
Our dog doesn’t like other dogs and the picnic site/stream borders a public footpath. Usually this means one of us has to hold him on lead the whole time the kids are swimming, which isn’t exactly relaxing.
This product was great as we could tie him on a shortened leash to keep him off the footpath and next to our picnic while we all paddled. We still had to fend off a few unleashed dogs from approaching him - he lunged a couple of times when they got too close and the tie down held firm.
He is an 8 year old rottie and weighs about 40kg (he’s lost a bit of weight recently).
Bought this to clip my Beagle and Husky onto as we own a motorhome so when were on site they can be outside. Worked brillant they both were pulling on it at times when dogs came past, that's about 50kg weight. It did not move the tie from the ground at all. Would definetly recommend
There are a number of tie outs on the market but this caught my eye as it looked stronger and less of a stake in the ground. The device corkscrews into the ground and leaves a colourful collar and chrome ring to attach my 35kg friend to when we are out and about and conditions dictate dogs need to be tethered. It is very firm once fitted (but may need a lever to get the last few cms into the ground). It’s also easy to remove when done. Being bright red plastic fittings also means I don’t trip over it especially as I have coupled it with a bright red Halti fabric lead. Good value and built to last.
Despite the picture showing it is unlike other brands and unbreakable this product broke exactly where the diagram showed other ground stakes breaking! Oops not very good marketing there! The product design is good and the plastic cover does stop tangling. But to have the handle sheer off in your hand is dangerous. Like another reviewer said there seems to be a weak point just below the handle and its just not strong enough to take being taken in and out of the ground. the metal needs to be thicker. The product then left a dangerous metal spike sticking out of the lawn which needed to be dug out. What a mess! I'd avoid buying this especially as it directly goes against its own product claims.
Product works great, recently took on camping trip where the dog had to be secured on a lead at all times. This worked very well, and out strong Labrador could not pull it out the ground, despite numerous attempts. Gives the dog wide freedom, obviously depending on the tie off used. We had a long 10+ m cable. No issues recommending this product.
Solid leash holding hook. Quite long and heavy, but comes at a price as difficult to get into the ground due to lack of handle and if there is hard soil you will need to wet it first. But once in (after a struggle) it is solid and strong. Keeps my pup in place when we go for a picnic and cannot supervise him.
This is working fabulously. I have just rescued an extremely anxious/scared dog -this gives her freedom to run round the garden - me piece of mind because I know she’s safe. Would work just as well on the beach, if you were having a picnic etc. So glad I didn’t send this back.
