To prevent deer and smaller critters from tugging or crawling underneath of your fence, it is important that the bottom edge of your fence be staked firmly to the ground. These 12" kinked ground stakes are suitable for leafy or average soils, and feature a kinked design that will make any attempt to pull it out of the ground difficult. They are made of durable galvanized steel, and have a 1 inch J hook that will hold the bottom edge of your fence. When driven completely into the ground, these stakes will not protrude or pose a hazard to pets or people walking near the fence line. For best results, use 1 12" kinked ground stake every 5 feet. Pack of 30.

I used the steaks to hold down a chain link fence so my dog did not crawl under fence. They did a great job but would like the top to be rough so they are easier to pound into the ground.

I liked the profile and diameter of the kinked stakes, they didn't deform when I pounded them into rocky soil. However, the exterior was so smooth and shiny that they were somewhat slippery and tended to want to pull out of the soil when holding mesh fencing under tension. The surface should have a tooth to it, like cold-dipped galvanized, for better pull resistance under vertical load.
