Aluminum Platform Anchor
From the White Mountains to the Overland Track, these ultralight aluminum tent platform anchors allow you to easily stake out your tent on wooden platforms.
Attach your guyline's stake loop to these with a lark's head knot, wedge the anchor between the platform planks and then tighten down the guyline to hold it tight.
These are bright blue, which makes them hard to lose.

Light weight and gets the job done. On of my favorite sites in Maine uses platforms and now I don't need to bring my heavier free standing tent. Thanks Zpacks!
(quality excellent but have not had a chance to put them to use yet...)
