Went through too many 2x2 or 4x4 just pounding the stakes into the ground. Could not even keep them straight to use. Tried several times and locations but in the end not going to use them. Not going to count against product that my ground mixture was not conducive, could only get them in 3/4 deep. So ground may have had rocks or something else blocking it from going all the way in.

Bought three of these locally. Installed completely in ground. Added 8 foot 4 x 4's , then put two sheets of lattice. Oriented north to south as southern winds are common. First gush of about 30 mph ripped these off at the base. I have photos. This was with a month of setup. Ergo these are really weak and will not withstand any stress. Save your money and dig a hold!

These are really heavy duty thick steel and very strong. The flutes are over 2.5 feet long and twice, driving one into the ground, I ran into rock, forcing me to figure out how to pull it back out and cut a foot off of the bottom. After doing this, everything was perfect. Held the 4x4 up easily while finishing the construction (a patio cover off the back of the house). Just beware that you may not be able to drive the full (almost) 3 feet of flute down all the way!

Should have found this years ago...
I wanted to put up a bird feeder near a hedge line, this spike allowed me to install a post in a matter of minutes, without it I would have had to dig and cut out roots, hard work and potential damage overted.

I bought these to install a temporary fence across our back yard they worked great for this 4 ft tall fence and will be easy to remove when we have our pool installed. Will keep my dogs in the yard when we open the driveway gate also. I will use them again if i ever have a need for them. I might suggest that when hammering them in use a water hose and run water next to the post as you install them in the ground makes it easier to hammer them in.
