Spiral tie out stake modification

These spiral tie out stakes are good for tethering goats.

It only took a few minutes to temporarily mount our drill press vise to the chopping block so I could bang the top open part closed.

Yes....Abigail figured out how to move her leash so it was slipping out at the open part of the spiral tie out stake.

My neighbor had two goats that he tethered... Well, sort of tethered because the blasted goats managed to pull those stakes (like what you have) out of the ground so often that he finally gave up and tied a chain from one tree to the other and attached the goat's leash onto the chain, otherwise he'd find the goats over across the road at the dairy farm, who's owner was usually pissed as hell that the goats were over there.
