Right and the dog tie downs get tripped over all day and night. These are bright orange and flush to the ground. The only thing your gonna do with these is stump your pinky toe. You wont have to worry about taking a digger at 1:00 AM over the dog tie down

Not so fast on those dog leash screw ins ... They have "crimped" flat spots that allow the dog chain to rotate. If you use these in hard ground and have to use a "cheater bar" to screw them in, there is a very good chance they will break at these crimped places. I broke 3 this way. I use anchors that have no "weak" spots. These Home Depot ones look substantial.
