Google "screw tent pegs" big selection, range of quality and price.

I do not believe a single design peg can perform in sand, wet ground, hard ground and rock. More than happy to look at all alternatives.

I am fortunate to have a set of spring steel pegs with forged and hardened tips. They cost me $2 each about 25 years ago from Industrial Springs in Adelaide, unfortunately the company is no longer in business and I have never seen these pegs anywhere else.

Large galvanised screws (say 6-8" long) and large flat washers from Bunning do the same job with a cheap battery drill.

These screw pegs seem to be good......until you hit hard rock....unless it can split the rock, you're buggered.

I got some high tensile forged steel pegs similar to the snow peaks that drifta sell at an exorbitant cost.

Wow, how good are these. I reckon I could almost drive them into granite. But at aprox $10 a peg, they would want to be good.

6 pegs - 300mm - about $48 delivered. 6 x 300mm Snow peaks will cost you about $85 delivered.

Like OJ said, these coach screw pegs are useless for sand. There are sand variants around and in the vid, patriot say they have sand versions coming soon. The few I've played with were pretty useless in sand. The 500mm sand peg is hard to beat, but happy to be corrected on that.

We camped at Ningaloo Reef last year and the screw pegs were the only type we could get in to the fine gravel they had hard packed at the camp area. Even thick steel pegs bent before going in. But on Dirk Hartog Island, those wide sand pegs were perfect. You need both types, depending on where you are headed of course.

I know what you mean. We were at Osprey Bay camp at Ningaloo and the ground is like rock. I had some heavy duty angle iron pegs like these: https://www.snowys.com.au/angle-iron-tent-pegs and they did the trick - with a hefty club hammer. But the Snow Peak pegs from Drifta look pretty neat.

I have some plastic screw pegs that are ok in soft soil, but I haven't tried them in sand.

I will be looking at the Patriot ones at the show next weekend, but as someone else said, a Long coach bolt and a flat washer will do the same job.

I prefer screw pegs where possible due to my age etc., but I still carry the old tried Steel pegs and a big hammer.

I recall thinking the ground was concrete in disguise. I pre drilled the peg holes with a masonry bit.

It certainly was. We were at Osprey too and I should have parked closer to the timber barrier so I could at least tie some of the ropes off on that. We had the full annex up and I didn't have a battery drill so each screw went in using the wrench from my socket set. No fun in that heat but there was no way those pegs would come out, no matter how hard the wind blew. Unscrewing them wasn't quite so bad.

Check out this video I found yesterday. He bangs one of these metal pegs into jarrah! Obviously no good for sand but for hard ground they would be ideal
