which screw peg for which floor... It's not about depth, it's about grip!

extreme

Represents the real hardship cases. Mostly mineral concrete, highly compacted and of course stone on stone. Peggy Peg also offers solutions here. Mandatory condition, however, is pre-drilling. As already described under gravel, such a soil can be cracked. If you do not have a machine on hand, there is a special solution in our range: Our HardCore Peggy. This small part is a Hit-in Screw-out Peg and is, as the name suggests, driven classic by hammer, also has a height adjustment and will later easily screwed back to the surface.

stones

Stones and little stones in the ground, often mixed with heavy clay or sandy soil. Often the ground thickens very quickly, so that the screw does not really want to move forward. Then please stop and work with the height-adjustable hook or lock nut. N, S and Peg & Stop Peggy will work fine here. However, it can happen that the surface is so strong that you have to use a little tricks. Simply pre-drill. In the resulting core hole the Peggy finds very fast hold and I put the leverage back to zero, in which I fasten my guy line at the lowest possible point.

hard

Field, forest, meadow. Even stones and roots cross here and there our way into the ground. You can usually screw directly. Often the ground thickens very quickly, so that the screw does not really want to move forward. Then please stop and work with the height-adjustable hook or lock nut. N, S and Peg & Stop Peggy will work fine here. The big LA only conditionally, depending on the moisture content. Through the way-seeking behavior of the screw rings, it can be time that the screws find a very different hold than you might have thought.

normal

This symbol represents the most common ground, mostly at campsites. Parzelliert, ordered, created. The soil is of course depending on the weather, sometimes wet but also dry. As a rule, you can get by with the Peggys N, S or Peg & Stop in our StartKit. These can usually be completely screwed in, depending on the degree of humidity. For storm tensions also L and LA can be used quite well. Due to their high compression, they often can not sink completely into the ground. Does not matter, there's our height adjustment.

soft

Soft stands here as a generic term for all softer soil types. The definition for "soft" looks like this. If I can still move a vehicle on the ground, you usually get by with the screw ring N, especially if the surface is also criss-crossed with root system. If the vehicle already leaves its mark, one accesses one of the two large screws, L or LA, to be able to penetrate deeper into the ground or to achieve more compaction through the large threaded surface. However, the sand or soft soil must also have a certain degree of compaction. A loose dune sand e.g. would not provide a stop for the screw rings.

As a rule of thumb: the harder the ground, the smaller the screw-in peg can be, because it usually finds a quick grip.

Works it also in the winter?

Yes, that goes in winter too. However, you have to pay attention to a few peculiarities. Basically, the application during the frost period is as described above under ballast. It must be pre-drilled, if necessary With a punch drill. However, since the plastic contains a small amount of water, which freezes at minus temperatures, the Peggy becomes more brittle and therefore more prone to breakage. Therefore, the screws should be placed in hot water before it helps to have the necessary elasticity when screwing. For the same reason it is necessary to pour some hot water over the screws in order to be able to unscrew. However, it may be that one time a tear off.

Can the screws snap off?

Well, of course they can snap off. As you know, after strong it will come soft. Most of the "fragments" that we can look at are 99% overturned because they should be too deep in;-). i.e Each screw (also metal screws) has a certain NM value, if it is exceeded, the screw is torn off. Physically logical. So for the screw peg: always only as long as the screws like the Peggy wants to forward, then check the hold and with the height-adjustable hook, the leverage effect set to zero, so possible close to the ground clip. You can achieve this by putting the screwdriver on the torque and pressing the shutter button at intervals. This makes it very easy to notice when the screws start to spring and you get to the limit of the load. So just a little bit with feeling and everything remains intact.

Are the Peggys also in metal?

No, and yes. A few of our screws are made of aluminum, which is metal. The others are made of plastic. What connects these two materials? Both are extremely light. Most caravans or mobile drivers are fighting for every gram of cargo today. So far the traditional herring equipment of a awning has weighed between 5 to 10 kg. Our starter, which is sufficient for a CA. 5, 5m long awning weighs just 1, 3kg. The screwdriver hardly comes into the weight. Moreover, the many have already been on board to operate the crank supports.
Conclusion: Screws made of steel would be far too heavy, had no elastic properties to find their way into the ground.

What is this material?

Our peggys are made of glass-fibre reinforced polyamide in the injection molding process. This material is also known under the old brand name nylon. It can be found in the cockpit of the motorhome, on the bicycle rack, but also in the household and garden. Actually everywhere in daily life. This is not a cheap plastic, as is commonly used in plastic impact pegs. As is often the case with the high art of processing, as well as the right mix of fiberglass and UV inhibitors from this material to create a high-quality product. It is equally light, elastic, very heat-resistant and highly resilient, but not unbreakable. (see above) The best possible choice of materials for this purpose.
