    This peg extractor lifts them straight up instead of side ways which breaks them. When we pulled them out by hand some side ways force was induced into the plastic pegs. If that was to happen a few times the pegs would break.
    Simple parts and simple fabrication.
    Old school.

    Cool, good idea! It definitely does resemble a T-post puller

    It is just a first class lever.
    Humans have been using them for a long time.
    Similar to a star picket remover except smaller, made from ali and adjustable for when the peg starts up.

    For car camping, I use old railroad spikes. We have some nasty hard clay around here. I did get a good deal on some forged, 4130 tent stakes at a surplus place once. I think they are for pounding through asphalt.

    Wow CrMo tent pegs!
    The round steel 1 foot long tent pegs in our black soil only require 15 kilograms of force to extract but the plastic ones need between 45 & 60 kilograms. I did some wind load calcuations on Friday and applied the force to our tent, then down the guy ropes to the tent pegs.
    With a 50 kilometer an hour wind the up lift on the pegs is 60 kilograms.
    No factor of safety but should hold.
    We were prompted to do all this because our tent was dashed upon our car one windy day. On Friday I check the weather bureau wind history for the day our tent blew away and found that there were gusts to 50 kiometers an hour.
    We did not have it pegged down like we do now.

    I suspect that if you put a series of holes doun the length of that "upright " that you will find more uses for that device. Just sayin.

    I already have height adjustment by moving the carrabina up and down the chain.
    That is how I can extract steel tent pegs that have been driven to the ground and the plastic ones that are a few inches above it.
