Excellent drawing but the last peg seems to have opened up on contact with the ground.

......it's 'cause it's one of those cheap pegs you get bundled with a new tent/awning.  Either that or Rob's been using my lump hammer!

I had noticed but now you have shamed me into going and fixing it

That's more like it.

Where's the 'c' gone from my original spelling of excellent? Somebody's been mucking about.

Don't beat yourself up about it. If you like drawing, Serif are selling off their
DrawPlus X3 for £9.95 I think. Great package. Save yourself £70 because they brought out X4.

Don't care how technical you're drawing is lol, you certainly helped me! Put my pegs in (that came out in high winds) ok according to your diagram. Problem must be the cheapo pegs i was using.
Thanks

I have have found that rock pegs to be one of the best for tents in hard ground.  Also plastic ABS pegs (yellow or red) have strangely been better than metal, but the rock pegs in gard ground.

I have never used delta pegs  - which many rave about - so can't comment
