Blue Diamond Screw Tent Pegs - 20 pack, Purple, One Size
About this deal
from the drill, which is battery powered. I do have an air powered one which needs the compressor, but hat maybe is slightly over the top. Ryobi pulled a fast one with their one+ range. Once you buy into the system with a couple of tools and a battery it makes no sense to stray unless their tools are not up to the job in hand. As it is, their tools are of ample quality for all but the most dedicated DIYer.

The Hook Collar is used with a Ground Dog screw in peg, when using the high viz straps and safety spring.The Aldi pegs are very good but you do need to remove the plastic T and open up the holes so the T spins freely. I use 8mm long coach screws and penny washers now. I’ve found the best technique to driving pegs into hard standings if they won’t screw in is to strike them firmly but not too hard and ease them into the substrate rather than trying to get them in with one Thor-like blow. At last you can securely anchor an awning leg vertically when detached from the side of a Caravan/Motorhome, with a Caravan Rollout Awning Anchor Kit.

I bought some screw in pegs from Aldi, last year. Tried them once - absolutely useless. Even starting them with a lump hammer (defeating the object of them, IMO) they wouldn't go in. Just spun around and I agree that there is a danger of catching fingers / awning ladders as the top spins round. I hate putting the awning up on a hardstanding - which is why we invariably go to places where we can have a nice grass pitch! http://www. caravantalk. co. uk/community/topic/119191-pegging-down-the-awning/?hl=%2Bscrew+%2Bpegs&do=findComment&comment=1400706
It takes longer to screw in as it must go through more revolutions when screwing in and out (this will be time consuming if doing by hand) Ryobi, as you say are OK especially for occasional use by old gimmers like me but not good for heavy regular use. DeWalt are very good but expensive and I think much loved by joiners and plumbers. when I worked in power generation we favoured Makita which we found fine for mechanical work. The Awning Anchor plates allow the awning legs to be detached from the side of the van or motorhome, to stand vertically, they are then securely anchored by screwing in a Ground Dog screw in peg on either side of the awning leg. (No more awning leg to walk into!)
