This stake is supplied with most all HQ kites. The orange knob on top makes it easy to see in the field or on the beach. The thick 8 1/2 inch long shaft is strong enough to hold down the biggest of kites. Each stake comes with a holster for storage.
What is a kite stake for? It is used to "stake down" the handles of your sport kite while setting up, breaking down, or making adjustments to your multi-line sport or traction kite. It will keep the handles in one spot, making setting up easier, and can keep your kite from self launching and becoming a hazard to you and others around you.
Tip: This stake is great, but I have found this stake is a little short for use in very soft sand. If you fly mostly in soft sand I recommend a longer stake.
