With a single pump of the handle, most tent stakes will break loose. The ergonomic design of this tent stake removal tool easily grabs the tent stake for a second pull if needed. STAKE OUT features an extended handle which generates a 16 to 1 mechanical advantage on the stake. A 50 pound down force on the handle generates 1050 pounds of gripping force and 450 pound upward breakout force on the stake. Made from heavy gauge steel plate and tubing to withstand everyday job site use. There is no paint to chip and the clear zinc plating resists corrosion. The patent pending jaw and lever mechanism allows you to pull stakes straight up out of the ground or subgrade without bending them, keeping your stakes straight for hundreds of repeated uses. STAKE OUT is covered by a limited lifetime warranty on materials and workmanship. Use the optional stake adapter when removing tent stakes from stake bars or other ares which cause the stake to be flush with the surface.
