    Hello, I am seeking a supplier for fiberglass driveway markers. Specifically the kind that is used by large snow companies like Sky High and Worry Free. Thanks.

    I just ordered a small batch from Discount Snow Stakes from right here in Massachusetts. They look like a high quality based in the ones I have seen and at a good price, I can give a better opinion once they arrive.

    I get mine from home depot or lowes they have them in orange and yellow fiber glass, with reflective tape at top of them there about a dollar a piece, very durable and hold up and then every year just replace and add to the amount, they will occasionally break

    Best way iv found is to bring a screw driver and rubber mallet make whole with screw driver first and then put stake in hole and give a light tap on top to set in place security

    I bought these stakes a few years ago because I wanted to save money. They are junk and I will not buy them again. They are super thin, hard to drive into the ground, and the worst part is...You can't effin see them. I dont remember them having any reflective tape on them. Can't even tell you how many I backed over.

    I do not recommend the cheap plow stakes from angelos. I can not comment on their other equipment. If they have other stakes, I'm not talking about those either. just the cheapo 100 stake bundles.

    They are thin, they can be a pita to drive in the ground with a hammer (I put them in a piece of 3/8" NPT steel pipe to eliminate flexing when driving in the ground) and yes there's no reflective tape. I have about 700 of these and they work fine for me. I also have issues with kids/punks taking them and lose about 10-12% a year so cheap to replace is a positive.

    Discount snow stakes. We pay a little over $1 a piece plus shipping but they are a quality 4' stake with a large reflective top. I have bought cheaper ones and they were about a useful as a McDonalds straw. Just ordered another 100 as we ran a little short from our yearly order a couple weeks ago.

    If you go to put them in and the ground is frozen, take a cordless drill with a long drill bit the same diameter as the stake . Piece of cake.

    +1 on the 24" 3/8 pipe with an end cap... makes a great post driver.. I use the side of my foot to control angle of the stake going in the ground.. (just did about 100 of these yesterday in wet ground)
