Tripod Stakes™ are designed to secure Dyacon Tripod-1 to the ground.
Tripod Stakes are sold in sets of six, as this is the number recommended for most soil types. For loose, sandy, or rocky soils, or for permanent installations, additional stakes may be required. (Refer to the Tripod-1 manual for information regarding other anchoring options.)
Because stakes may not be needed for certain installations (e.g., roof-top), they are not included with the Tripod-1. Enterprising users may also prefer to source or manufacture their own stakes in order to save on cost and shipping charges.
Note: Do NOT substitute plastic tent stakes for Tripod Stakes.

These are not fancy and you may certainly fabricate your own. Hopefully, we can save you some time in building your own.
Sorry, a hammer is not included.
