Since 1981, we have produced a range of superior plastic tent pegs, rope slides and keyhole tensioners for camping under the "Crown" brand. The Tent pegs were designed specifically with New Zealand conditions in mind and are moulded in High Impact Co-polymer Polypropylene. This is an engineering plastic and is very resilient. It can be used in all different soil types, will not shatter in stoney soil and will retain its integrity.
NZ Heavy Duty Tent Pegs

Made in New Zealand, "Crown" plastic tent pegs are designed for New Zealand conditions. Manufactured from High Impact Polypropylene, they have a higher mass, are lightweight, non-corrosive and are technically superior to ABS pegs. They are strong and resilient with large non-slip strong hooks to make sure everything is held in place.
Tent Pegs For Tough Terrain

Crown tent pegs can be used in all different soil types, will not shatter in stony soil and retain their integrity. If removed from the stony soil, the pegs may have a slight bend in them but the careful choice of the molding material allows for straightening of the peg, so they’ll be as good as new!
Tent Pegs For Hard NZ Ground

High Impact Polypropylene is superior to ABS which is used in cheaper, imported products and creates a superior product that anchors well in the ground and should not shatter. These pegs also flex around obstacles, work well in all extremes of temperature and have been specially designed to be resilient, so they have some "give" to them.

Hi Allan,
Our football club installs 22 goal nets each weekend & ever since the local council has band the use of metal net (tent) pegs, we have had a problem finding a reliable peg at a reasonable price. We have tried cheap ones, some only lasting a week or so & now the expensive  pegs we paid $4 each for, from a nation wide sports shop, are snapping. Of the 100 pegs we ordered last season from "Rolux Fishing Rods"  NOT  a single one has broken. Your service was quick & reliable and the pegs are very reasonably priced & also reliable.
I would have no problem with recommending your service & tent pegs to anybody.
Cam MacMillan,

I bought the last 2 lots for the nets at our football club ...the junior club asked could i get some for them ,they are best for both hard and soft ground and are very durable thanks, Chris Pike.

Plastic Tent Pegs

15 cm Peg

The smaller peg is 15cm long and unique in design. It is made with double hooks on the top and is ideal for light duty anchoring. The double taper makes for easy insertion and removal with the main holding power being obtained by the angle of insertion.

The 15cm plastic tent peg has been designed with a double hook system so that it can easily be used to either anchor down a tent floor or ground sheet with the straight hook or act as a strainer for guy ropes with the curved hook side.

Right: 15cm peg & guy rope using curved hook.     Far right: pegged down groundsheet with 15cm peg using straight hook.

If you do not have a hook removal tool, it is easy to remove these pegs by using the attached guy rope to pull the peg straight out of the ground. See the pictures:

23 cm Peg

The middle size peg is 23cm long and is the most popular one that we sell. Used for all tent sizes, it is a very versatile peg with superb strength and holding power. The 3 sided shape allows easy insertion with the maximum surface area in contact with the ground, providing great holding ability.

Both the 23cm & 30cm pegs have a non slip single hook on top and also a hole for inserting a hook tool to ease removal from the ground without damaging the peg.
30 cm Peg

The largest peg we supply is 30cm long and of the same design as the 23cm version. Once this peg is anchored in the ground, it can easily resist the tension applied by even the largest of family tents. It is often used for securing large wind breaks and for tensioning ropes for many different purposes. As far as recreational camping goes, you will never be let down by our largest peg.

Rope Slides

To compliment the range of pegs, we also have "Crown" moulded rope slides in two sizes which are easy and economical to use.  These are 6.5 cm and 10 cm long with holes in both ends for attaching the guy ropes:

6.5cm slide has holes of 4.5mm diameter.
10cm slide has holes of 9.6mm diameter.

Keyhole Tensioners

"Crown" moulded plastic keyhole tensioners provide another option when erecting tents, shades or fly's etc. They are 18cm long, made out of thermo-plastic rubber and easily stretch and have an excellent memory. Standard colour is black.
The tensioners are placed between the peg and the guy rope to act as a shock absorber to prevent damage to the tent material if it is over strained as in a heavy wind or even someone tripping over your guy rope.

Crown Keyhole tensioners are ideal as winch hook tensioners on 4WD vehicles to prevent the hook from bouncing around when tackling the rough stuff.

My Personal Experience Using "Crown" Camping Products

Falstone camping closeup(copy)
My favourite camping spot is Falstone camp ground on the shores of Lake Benmore. Accessed from the Twizel end of the lake, Falstone was a newly developed site when we first started visiting. The seedlings were only 30cm high but grew quickly to give good shade which was a blessing when the temperatures soared after Christmas.
We spent many weeks at a time there for over 20 years and used and developed the "Crown" Tent pegs Slides & Tensioners to secure our camping site. I utilised these experiences to refine the pegs, mainly with subtle material changes to achieve the results we have today.

Even though the strong Northwesters came across the lake nearly every day at 4:30, (if you have camped there, you will know what I'm talking about), the pegs held fast and combined with the judicious use of slides and tensioners, never let us down.

"Crown" pegs come in 3 different sizes, covering all camping requirements from anchoring light Tent fly's and Tent floors to tensioning large multi-room family Tents, Awnings, Sports nets and Wind breaks.
