Yes its meldrum my pvc took a beating which is why Im changing my designherrliechne said:The picture at the start looks like Meldrum Bar. Nothing but rock to drive into. I question whether PVC will take the beating driving it in at places like at Meldrum. PVC into Sand, ok. Dirt with some stone, maybe ok.

I think this is the best one K.I.S.S. Before locking down wingnut turn PVC perpendicular to angle iron drive as deep as needed into ground, turn PVC parallel to angle iron, and lock it down. Cut pcs. to length. Tonypcstock said:I used a piece of steel angle, cut the tip to a point and screwed it to a PVC pipe. Cheap and easy. Just need access to an angle grinder.
