This heavy duty hold stake is used to hold 1/2" tubing in place. Tubing snaps in from top and is securely held by the "C" clamp in the stake head. Stake is rigid enough to be pushed into the ground using your foot or small hammer. 8" long and 1.25" wide with a thickness of roughly 1/8". A nice choice if you really want to make sure your tubing stays put.
