Cheap 12-in. Pole Barn Nails Keep Tent Secure
I often attend antique tractor shows and stay overnight in a tent at the show site. I donít like using those long plastic spikes to stake the tent down, because they can easily break when pounded into hard ground. So I went to a local hardware store and bought some cheap 12-in. pole barn nails, then welded 3/8-in. dia. fender washers under the heads to keep the rope from sliding off the nail. (Dave Dam, 111 N.
