|The bestselling yard sign stake is the 8-gauge spring steel Stout Stake. Individual wires, two per sign, with a slight bend for positioning, offer a broader base of support. They are made of higher carbon, stiffer spring steel for keeping your message standing strong. Don’t let the low price fool you. Stout Stakes stand up to the elements better than the imitations. Made of clean Galvanized Spring Steel, you’ll no longer have to deal with an oily mess. On larger signs, use four per sign for best support.
