These are a great bargain for car camping, pretty sure they're galvanized and either 7 or 8mm diameter.

No more trying to get those feeble roundwire pegs in using a rubber mallet, only to hit a rock and end up bending them all whilst you try to find some soft ground.

With these (and a steel hammer) you can just smash them in and not have to worry about bending them or your guy ropes coming loose when it gets windy.

Swear I’ve seen this deal a million times before
Pointless being galvanised if they are being hammered into rocky hard ground. Any coating will be scraped off.
needed more, thanks
Decent pegs, but I find the plastic isn't strong enough, some of mine have broken on removal.

It's a zinc coating, so it's another layer of metal, not paint.

I've had some similar to this for about 8 years used every year. Not scraped off yet.

We used a set of these a couple of weekends ago - very solid pegs, but the plastic broke on every single one of them on removal - extremely brittle so personally i'd treat them as single use items if you're going to buy them

Or just put stainless penny washers on instead.

Used a set on some rock hard baked ground in East Anglia, none broke but a few of the harder to extract ones have fatigue type marks on them. Definitely not brittle though, probably you got a duff batch.

Quite possibly - the suggestion above of using a washer is a good one to be fair - that plus a claw hammer would be the perfect combo i suspect
Useful pegs for holding down a full sized football net into the ground
I got some from Aldi which had threaded shafts and 13mm nut heads, so you could screw them into the ground.

Nothing like using cordless power tools to set up your campsite.

Ah, here we go: still available

I switched over to Tarzan rock pegs. They are similar but indestructible, not having any plastic bits to break.
