Pitch Perfect

Hammering pins into the ground for pitching the tent is a big hassle during camping. It can be difficult and dangerous. ’45 degree PIN-DOWN’ allows you to drive tent pins into the ground without the needing hammer. It uses a foot pedal and one’s whole body weight to make the task easier, safer, and more efficient. The pedal, which doubles up as the pin case, drives the light weight Titanium pins downward at a 45-degree angle.

45 degree PIN-DOWN is a 2013 Red Dot Award: Design Concept winning project.

Designers: Jeon Youngwon & Jeong Eunji

    not a bad idea…

    how do you deal with dirt when extracting the pins?

    One point though: seeing the pins go through that hole and them having this hook… I suggest a slot rather than an all around hole in which the pin can get caught.

    Other than that: pure genious
