Sometime the surrounding ground does not lend itself for secure installs of canopies and tents. The stakes just will not hold. When this is the case you might consider using auger anchors. These 30 inch auger anchors are made by Shelter Logic, the experts in portable shelters. With these anchors you can rest assured that your canopy or tent is secure. These augers will corkscrew into the surface you choose. Then you will attach the tie down ropes to keep you canopy in position.
