Tripod Stakes are neither elegant nor sophisticated, all they do is hold the tripod to the ground. Six stakes are recommended for most soil types. For loose, sandy, or rocky soils, or for permanent installations additional stakes may be required. (Refer to Tripod-1 manual for information regarding other anchoring options.)
Stakes are sold in sets of six.
Since the stakes may not be needed in roof-top installations, they are not included with the tripod. Enterprising users may also prefer to source or manufacture their own stakes in order to save cost and shipping charges. Please do NOT use plastic tent stakes.
