Method and apparatus for staking articles to a ground surface

Image Number 2 for United States Patent #4953576.

A method is disclosed for securing an article to a ground surface using an elongated stake having a sharp first end of a body portion for driving into a ground surface and a blunt second end for receiving a driving force and transferring it to the body portion. A rope extends from the article and forms a loop at its free end. The loop is drawn through a ring-shaped outrigger pivotably mounted to the body portion of the stake. After passing through the ring-shaped outrigger, the eye of the loop is passed over the blunt second end of the body portion of the stake. The rope is made taut by pulling the free end of the rope so as to enlarge the loop, thereby taking up slack in the portion of the rope spanning the article and stake.
