Screw in Tent Pegs makes camping a lot easier

Screw in Tent Pegs Review:

Screw in tent pegs, Drill in tent pegs, Heavy Duty tent pegs, really show their worth when you hit rock solid ground. This week we pulled up in a gravel pit roadside rest area, and with the sun blazing down we really wanted our awning and shade screen up on our Caravan, but the ground was too tough for our awning pegs to even dint! So, any excuse to get the tools out, Crispy was able to really put our hard ground, drill in awning pegs from Bunnings to the test.

We put together a little “How to…” Video, demonstrating how to get your pegs into even the toughest ground, with the right tools. This is our first attempt with video, so we apologise for the wind noise and the blurry bits – we’re still learning!

This particular set we bought at Bunnings for around $20!

I know there are some very snazzy, Aussie designed versions available that may have more features or warranty than these ones, but these will do the trick. You find them in the tarps section of Bunnings, and make sure you open the box to check the drill bit is included in it. The first one we bought, we had to take back as it was missing the bit, and they told us this can happen occasionally, so it pays to check it before you leave the store.

    Thank great video. What type of drill do you recommend. I went into Bunnings and got overwhelmed not knowing anything about drills and walked out without anything. I’m learning so much from your website thank you.

      Hi Catherine, It can be overwhelming! You definitely don’t need a hardcore tradie drill if you don’t want to use it all the time. One thing to think about, is once you have the battery and charger for any of a particular brand, you can then use those batteries in other things they sell too, so that might help. Ryobi are pretty good and have some other cool things, like a misting fan or a blower that you might want to get down the track. Makita also have a really good range of other tools that can be handy and they are both reliable brands. Some of the cheaper brands may not last the distance. Some drills might have a hammer feature on them as well, but you don’t really need it unless you are planning on drilling your pegs into a concrete slab. Preferably go for an 18 volt one, which refers to the battery size.
