Orange Screw is the ultimate ground anchor with literally hundreds of uses: Secure your tent, pet, boat, tarp, garden stakes, sunshade, small airplane, and more. This innovative, lightweight, rust proof and easy-to-use ground anchor is made of 100 percent recycled/recyclable materials, and they’re manufactured entirely from U.S.-made materials in Washington state. 

Most stores carry tarps, tarp clips, bungee cords and ropes. Tents and temporary shelters come with flimsy, skinny hooks. Pet ground anchors are heavy, clumsy and prone to rust. But truly high-performance and portable ground anchors have been non-existent...until now. 

Orange Screws are made from 100 percent recycled polycarbonate plastic and made in the U.S.A

Seeing the need for such a product, our family invented the Orange Screw. If you have ever experienced a tent stake or ground anchor fail in the wind or rain, you understand the need for a superior product. Our patented helical shape was refined by years of prototyping in varying soil conditions. The Orange Screw has the smoothest insertion and removal of any ground anchor we have tested and incredible holding power. 

Use the Orange Screw to replace rusty metal dog tie outs; secure your RV awning in the wind; keep a tarp over your boat, ATV or firewood; ensure your tent stays where you place it; secure a temporary greenhouse in your garden; anchor your kayak or paddle board to the shore; and so much more. 

You can even anchor your pet yak with Orange Screw.

Orange Screws are available in two sizes with a protective sleeve which doubles as a hi-torque drive handle. The small ($7) weighs in at only 1.8 ounces yet holds up to 400 pounds. The large ($12) weighs only 3.6 ounces and has a pull-out strength of over 600 pounds. 

We will remain a family-owned business who continues to manufacture our products here in the United States.
