Step 1: Making the Tentpegs
I Normally make my own tentpegs due to the fact that I lose them a lot.This can be done by purchasing some roundbar and cutting them into 45cm lengths,sharpening the one end and bending the other around.
Step 2: Making Them More Visible
What I like to do lately is to dip the in enamel and hang them to dry(this should take about 24hrs)I use a bright color which I know will not be found at the campsite,Unlike the rust color of a peg that seems to disappear into the ground as soon as you have to pack up in a hurry during a storm.
1)Get yourself a tin of enamel paint with your color of choice.
2)take your peg and dip it into the paint
3)ensure the paint is covering the entire area you dipped
4)hold it over the tin until all the access has dripped off
5)Hang in a ventilated area for 24 hrs before touching.
