Was not sure if augers would hold as advertised but thought they would be worth a try ( I lost a tent blind 4 years ago with just factory stakes and 40 mph wind in sand base ). After setting up tent blind in same sandy soil, used augers to help anchor all 4 corners using tie down rope that came with blind. Three days later came 3 days of winds that averaged 40 mph with gusts of 60 to 70. Just went and checked on blind, you wouldn't know that the wind had even blown. Couldn't be happier.
