With winds and gusts up to 60mph around here, you can see the only way to protect your blind is to use some real stakes. Rebar for the four outside lines, 4 orange tip ones for inside the blind. The ones laying across the two mentioned above are what comes with the blind. Junk tie-downs. After losing one blind to high winds, never again. This blind is the best blind I have ever purchased. Summit Blinds are the best in my opinion. So glad I saw them at the SHOT Show in 2019. One other thing, the setup was 30 seconds with two of us, take down was 15 seconds with 3 of us. Thank goodness for a tall grandson, he can reach the center to pull it up when setting up. I highly recommend this blind to everyone.
