Been looking at getting some decent pegs for our porch awning.
Delta Ground Anchors keep appearing.
Are they worth the money............or just a gimmick?.
Any other suggestions / ideas please?

Thx. Simon

The advert seems to major on their use when camping. So I guess green pitches. I’ve used the normal grp/ plastic pegs on grass and they grip well. But overall I’ve now tended to use the hardened rock pegs that have a coarse screw thread for half their length. They grip well on hard standing and grass. The Kampa Grippa ones look like those I use. They hammer in and aren’t the pegs that require screwing as they don’t do so well if they hit a hard stone whereas the hardened rock pegs will normally break the hardcore and continue to drive in.

Blue Diamond Heavy Duty Pile Driver were the last set that I bought. Similar to the Kampa Grippa.

I concur with otherclive, they seem suitable for grass pitches and nothing else. I would also say that they appear quite expensive in comparision to other plastic pegs, and I would say that if ordinary plastic pegs are used correctly, i.e. a 45 degree angle, they are more than up to the job.

I do find plastic pegs hold the ground far better than rock pegs but I dont go on grass pitches very often.
