Gear Review: Coghlan’s LED Nail Pegs
Today, I am reviewing Coghlan’s LED nail pegs. WooHoo! Why all the excitement? These LED nail pegs solve a problem that camping families have been dealing with for years. Before we get into all that, let’s take an obligatory look at the features (insert ooooohhhhs and aaaahhhhs ).
Features of Coghlan’s LED Nail Pegs
- 9 lumen LED light which lasts up to 30 hours
- Steel tent stakes
- 10″ heavy duty tent pegs
- LED light features a positive twist ON-OFF dial
- Light can be angled over 45°
Why Coghlan’s LED Nail Pegs are the Best Thing That Has Happened to Camping Since Matches
If you don’t camp with children, you may think that’s an overstatement. However, camping parents will understand. You see, I stay on high alert at night at the campsite trying to keep my kids from getting clotheslined by the tent guylines. Young children are just the right height to make this a real problem.
We’ve tried different methods to alleviate this problem. We’ve tied ribbons to the tent lines but they don’t show up very well at night and they look a little tacky. If the weather is good, we sometimes go topless (take off the rainfly) so we don’t have to deal with the hassle.
Now we have Coghlan’s LED nail pegs. These heavy duty steel tent stakes illuminate the tent guylines so you can see them at night. The LED lights can be angled to 45° (now someone’s thinking). My husband and I have discussed many times that the tent manufacturers should make tent guylines that you can see. LED tent stakes? Even better. Now we don’t have to buy a new tent. Isn’t it amazing that such a small product can make such a large impact on your camping experience?
Obviously, I am a big fan of Coghlan’s® LED nail pegs. Before I received the pegs, I did wonder about the durability of these tent stakes. Now that I have used them, I feel that they are very durable. In fact, they are as tough as nails.
The Bottom Line
We love Coghlan's LED nail pegs. Now we don't have to worry about tripping over the tent guylines, stumping our toes on the stakes or about our kids getting clotheslined. We can spend our camping nights stress-free. Pass the marshmallows, would ya?
I'll see ya by the campfire.

Just so ya know- I was given the Coghlan's LED Nail Pegs for free from the manufacturer (but to be fair, I did request them because they looked so awesome). Opinions are honest and my own.
