The story behind Peggy Peg Australia & Peggy Peg Innovative Systems:
Peggy Peg Australia is an established family-owned business that distributes the entire range of the award-winning Peggy Peg Screw in Tent Pegs and anchor plates across Australia and New Zealand.
We are keen campers and love getting off-road and finding amazing locations Australia wide to set up camp and take in everything this amazing country has to offer. We are NSW based but have camped in every State and Territory and have experienced the different conditions Australian campers, caravan and RV owners and the 4×4 adventurers are faced with every time they set up camp. It was camping in all these different conditions that made us realise that normal metal pegs weren’t versatile enough for all the different conditions. This led us in 2014 to Peggy Pegs.
Tent pegs aren’t the most exciting thing about camping, but they are one of the most important. There is nothing worse than flapping tents and awnings, having to get up in the middle of the night and secure things again. Or watching your pop up gazebo cartwheeling across the campsite in high winds.
It is annoying, stressful, costly, and can put a premature end to a great adventure. We invested in some Peggy Pegs from Europe and haven’t looked back.
It was this investment and the constant enquiries from fellow campers and the interest they showed that gave us the idea of approaching the manufacturer in Germany and asking to be the Australian distributor. Since then, we have gained even more experience, and recently we decided to extend our collaboration with Peggy Peg Germany even more! Therefore, Gerard & Samantha joined our team to try to help and improve our brand, business and customer service! They are passionate travellers who love to go camping and hiking, and especially the idea to find solutions to solve the campers' everyday problems. Travelling around Australia and New Zealand, multiple different soil conditions can be found. Together with Peggy Peg Innovative Systems, we aim to expand the product range and adapt to these varying conditions and needs.
Nice to meet you!
Peggy Pegs are available in 16 countries and growing; with 1.5 Million standard pegs being sold worldwide, they have proven their worth. In the past seven years, we have supplied Peggy Pegs to thousands of happy customers and have received loads of really positive feedback. We have listened to your opinions and thoughts and passed them on to the manufacturer with changes made to improve things to make life even easier. We will continue to listen and improve so we can provide you with the best products.
Peggy Pegs have a long list of features that have great benefits and reasons to use them. Comparing Peggy Pegs to normal pegs is like comparing timber nails and screws. Standard pegs get hammered in like nails, and they can bend and work loose when jerking forces of wind gusts are applied. We have worked up a sweat many times trying to get normal pegs out as well.
Peggy Pegs screw in quickly and easily using a cordless drill or hand tool, and they have fantastic grip because of the screwing movement; if they hit stones, they rotate around them rather than bending. Once screwed in, they won’t work loose, and they are flexible, allowing the peg to absorb the force rather than work them loose (similar to a spring). Once it’s time to move on, the screw comes out in seconds. And just as importantly, they are lightweight and compact, so they pack away using minimal space.
