Step 1: Materials

The only materials you will need for this great simple hack is 3 tent pegs. You should have at least some spare tent pegs in you peg bag for your wild expeditions to the great outdoors.

Step 2: How to Make It

To make this super simple hack which makes cooking on unstable and wobbly stoves 100% more stable and hassle free. All you have to do is place 3 tent pegsover your stove or directly on thefoldaway pot supports which i think is the most strong and stable option, so there is no chance of you tipping your put over which is all ways anoying.

You don't have to push the tent pegs all the way to the pot suports, you can just push them in the ground evenly, but i do it the other way because it is easier to make it level and i find it make the pegs less wobbley.

Step 3: How to Adjust It

Also if your stove has foldaway pot stands like mine (most do) you can adjust the height by pushing the tent pegs up or down the pot stand. This is very useful if you are on uneven ground.

Step 4: Now Your Done

And now you are done. This all you need to do for this simple yet effective hack which really works and helps you cook when camping. Yum Yum.
