The only thing is you need to screw them all the way in.

I'm always looking for better mousetraps for strapping my plane to the ground, and these have caught my eye. Might be good in an array of 2,3 or 4 at each tie down point.

One thing I have learned about devices for tying down a plane, is the best device/system depends on the soil. Augers and screws work well in loam or sand. Spikes work well in rocky soil. One size does not fit all.

Still looking for the ultimate, light solution.
