Does anyone know what kind of bank rod holders these are?

Tried making my own with hose clamps and it sucks. Where do you buy these aluminum ones? They have a screw device on the bottom to lock in the holder.

Looks like an easy DIY project ...

I've seen several made from PVC pipe over the past few years. Often using a straightened paint roller handle to fashion the dirt spike end.

Not sure about the clamp at the bottom; there are pros and cons to a clamp.

Thanks this is what Im looking for because I need to be able to smack the rebar down into the rocky beach vs hitting the pvc holder.

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.

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 like driving steel into rocky places with a 2lb hammer, then attaching the holder as in the picture. But whatever works for you ......

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. Tony

I bank fished for years, and built several different rod holders, but this last rod holder is easy to make and can be stuck into almost any thing or anywhere. Here are the preticulars on the rod holder;

1" angle iron 3' long sharpened on the bottom.

weld 2 1/2" metal rings onto the fishing rod holder.

Paint if you need to then go fishing. This rod holder can be pushed into rocks, sand, and dirt.

I have a few of these that I would be willing to sell if anyone is interested $20.00 each

Drilled a hole in the top of the PVC so I could get a screwdriver in there to tighten the bolt. Ground down the back of the angle slightly to make a flat spot for the nut.

For a lighter, but maybe less rugged holder, I have used an aluminum angle piece
