Whether in your Backyard, Camping, or at the Beach we are pleased to offer you a great set of stakes to complete your horseshoe court set up. Our tapered stakes allow you to quickly install your stakes almost anywhere. These are not the skinny flimsy stakes you might find at the big box stores that loosen quickly and fall over after only a few pitches. These stakes are the official NHPA regulation 1" diameter and a full 28" in length. The official above ground stake height is 14-15 inches, so burying the stakes 14" (half way white guideline) gives you the perfect height with amazing long-term stability. After use, repaint only the above ground half of the stake to maintain the guideline. If desired, these stakes can be permanently set in a wood block or bucket of concrete, simply place a small piece of steel at the base of the stake to blunt the tapered end, or remove the tapered end with a metal cutting saw or grinder. A bolt placed through the eyelet at the bottom provides added stability to permanent setups. Remember, stakes should be set up with a 3 inch forward lean as measured from top to bottom (12°).
