There is more chance of injuring yourself than breaking one of our Pro (Steel) Series products. If you use a good quality cordless drill we suggest you use the torque limiting adjustment and set it midway so you can feel the pressure it will put on your wrist and arm and how well it is screwing the GroundGrabba into the ground. If the mid setting doesn’t allow the peg/stake to drill deep enough then you can increase the settings whilst making sure you grip your drill in a way to help prevent it from twisting and spraining or breaking your wrist. (See our video below)
We suggest you place one leg each side of your drill handle and as the drill may twist in your hand it will swing towards your right leg so that your right leg becomes a guide and helps prevent your wrist being twisted. (See the video below)
The easiest way is with a cordless impact wrench aka rattle gun. (See the video below) These are the variety you’d notice at a tyre workshop making a rattling sound as the wheel nuts of your car are removed. They will twist with great force but put very little twisting force on your wrist. Using the impact wrench rattle gun with our Pro (Steel) Series pegs is certainly the easiest way to go. Don’t fear breaking our Pro series pegs either….. You break it…we replace it! * conditions apply. Do Not use an impact wrench with the GroundGrabba Lite as the glass reinforced nylon will fracture and snap.

Please see What is the difference between the GroundGrabba Pro and Lite? and refer to the instructions of our GroundGrabbass. (see our video)
A bit of common sense also helps. A Lite item will break if you subject it to the extreme forces that the Pro series are designed for.
The Pro (Steel) is for tough ground and the Lite (Nylon/plastic) is for soft ground.
Some grounds may be impenetrable or close to it. In these grounds we recommend trying to pre-drill a 10mm pilot hole (see our video below) using one of our 10mmx300mm masonry drills. Once there is a pilot hole, you may find it easier or perhaps even possible to now screw the GroundGrabba Pro’s into the ground.
Don’t fear snapping them, they’re designed to be very strong so you can give them a heap of punishment and if by chance you do… will replace it we for you free for it’s life time. * conditions apply.
Obviously though if the ground has large rocks or concrete under the surface any peg will find it very difficult or impossible to penetrate.
Yes you can. The shaft of the GroundGrabba Pro series is 10mm so the eyelet must be larger than that. We suggest you hand wind the thread through the eyelet before you use your drill to screw them into the ground. (see our video) This helps prevent the thread grabbing the eyelet and wrapping the tarp/ground sheet around the drill.
The same with removing them….. (see our video) When you have wound the GroundGrabba Pro out of the ground close to where the thread is about to come out of the ground you should stop using the drill and then unwind the rest by hand.
The SandGrabba Lite is not designed to screw through eyelets.
Absolutely yes. The GroundGrabba Lite has it’s own ‘built-in’ hook that you can loop your rope or spring onto. (see our video) The hook is smooth to help the rope slip making it easy to adjust your rope or spring tension. If the load or tension you are going to apply to the GroundGrabba Lite is considerable and you feel it may snap the hook section, then just spin the GroundGrabba lite around 180 degrees so the hook is pointing away from the load and loop your rope under hook closest to the shaft such that the load is against the shaft. (see our video)
The GroundGrabba Pro’s work in conjunction with the HexHook Pro which slots over the hex head and then slide it under the hex head using its key hole design. Once the HexHook is slid in place you can then loop your ropes or springs onto the hook section.
The HexHook Pro as the name implies has an inbuilt Hex tool which you can use to wind in your GroundGrabba’s into the ground and easily unwind your GroundGrabba’s also. We have even found it useful for opening bottle tops!
(see videos below)
We have designed our products for camping and not for emergency use.
However should an emergency situation arise and I needed to use anything at my disposal I would certainly not rule out the use the GroundGrabba Pro’s if need be remembering to take all necessary safety precautions to reduce risk of harm should something break or snap under tension. Camping gear can be replaced, people can’t. Always be safe.
Well yes… we find it really handy for that too! How Good is THAT?!
