Shelter System Bundle

From the husband-and-wife team behind Lawson Equipment, this bundle includes everything you need to stake out a tarp or tent—whether you’re completing a new system that came without all the necessary components, or upgrading parts of an existing setup. Along with eight titanium stakes (four measuring 6.5 inches long and four measuring 8.5 inches long), you’ll get eight tension bars and a 50-foot hank of 2-millimeter-thick reflective orange Glowire cord. All gear is designed and manufactured right here in the USA.

Titanium Stakes in 2 Sizes

Recently upgraded with Grade 5 titanium (which boasts the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal on earth), these stakes are stronger and drive straighter than previous versions, with less bounce-back and more holding power. Each has a tighter-diameter top bend and a more defined backbend—two improvements that keep the apex of the stake over the spine while giving the user more striking area.

Tension Bars

Designed to work with Lawson’s 2- and 3-millimeter Glowire (and other cordage in this size range), these tension bars hold tight and weigh next to nothing: 3 grams apiece. To use them, thread the end of the line through one hole and back through the other hole in the opposite direction. Then, tie a knot on the end. To tension, pull and twist the tension bar with one hand to unlock the grip, and with the other hand, pull the line you’re trying to tension.

Reflective Glowire

Finally, a guy-line you won’t trip over. With its bright colors and super-reflective 3M Scotlite tracers, Lawson’s Reflective Glowire is visible in both daylight and low-light conditions. This relatively stiff 50-foot cord—machine-braided in-house using high-quality yarn—is constructed with a UV-resistant polyester jacket and a high-tenacity parallel-fiber polyester core, which makes it both durable and tangle-resistant.
