Peggy Pegs have a long list of features that have great benefits and reasons to use them. Comparing Peggy Pegs to normal pegs is like comparing timber nails and screws. Normal pegs get hammered in like nails, they can bend and can work loose when jerking forces of wind gusts are applied. We have worked up a sweat many times trying to get normal pegs out as well.
Peggy Pegs screw in quickly and easily using a cordless drill or hand tool, and they have fantastic grip because of the screwing movement; if they hit stones, they rotate around them rather than bending. Once screwed in, they won’t work loose, and they are flexible, allowing the peg to absorb the force rather than work them loose (similar to a spring). Once it’s time to move on, the screw comes out in seconds. And just as importantly, they are lightweight and compact, so they pack away using minimal space.
Peggy Pegs are also extremely lightweight compared to regular pegs.
Every camper needs to think about its maximum load nowadays. Our Starter Kit weighs only 1.3KG, a huge difference compared to regular tent pegs sets which often weigh around 5-10kg.
You may notice that only half of the peg is threaded, this is so the blue rope clip can be moved up and down the shaft depending on how far the pegs screws into the ground. The pegs don’t need to go all the way in, as long as the thread is in the ground they are working. It’s important not to over screw or force the peg into the ground, as flexible as they are even the fibre reinforced plastic is not indestructible (keep the torque on your drill low to start with to get a feel for the ground and the peg, this will save any damage from over-tightening). Once your Peggy Peg is in as far as it wants to go, just adjust the rope clip and click it into position close to the ground so the force is coming from as low as possible. Also to save you money grab some extra rope clips and one peg can work in multiple directions.
What torque setting should I use to prevent damaging the pegs?
Peggy Pegs can be divided into the following groups; N, L, LA, HC, S.
N • Normal grounds, from hard to a little soft – with a hook 20 cm long, max torque 25Nm
L • Soft, sandy grounds – Peggy Long with hook 31 cm long torque max. 30 Nm
LA • Soft to dense grounds with stones – Peggy Long Aluminium, with hook 31 cm long torque max. 70 Nm
HC • Most extreme grounds – Hardcore Peggy Hit-in Screw-out Peggy Alu, with hook 15 cm long torque max. 70 Nm
S • For loops and plates – Peggy Small – 12 cm long, torque max. 5 Nm
We use a Ryobi cordless drill, and keep the torque setting at 20 for the standard peg (PP02) and less for the smaller peg (PP05), due to its narrower shank.
Torque settings will be different for different makes of drill.
We recommend that you can work your way up the torque settings, until you find the peg flexing (see photo in ‘how to use’ section). You should then remove the drill, and ‘tweak’ the peg by hand – either with the handle of your PP06 Combo Tool – it has a ring spanner built in, or any other 17mm hex head tool.
WARRANTY & CARE
All Peggy purchases come with a 1-year warranty.
We will continue to do so in the future. Our ‘plastic’ pegs are made from fibreglass-reinforced polyamide, and our Hardcore pegs are made from aluminium.
Our products come with UV protection and can last several years in the sun. The material of our ‘plastic’ pegs is water-based, and to make them last even longer; we recommend laying them into a bucket of water after detaching your camp gear now and then. This ensures the material to stay flexible and enhances their durability.
