    I know it is a strange heading but does anyone know where I can buy such things. I have a windbreak with the thin metal spikes which are supposed to hold the poles firmly.
    In Spain last year (can be very windy) I saw that many of the Spanish windbreaks had "feet" or brackets which held the spike and could be anchored by pegs. A lot of them also had 45º aluminium rods which anchored the top of the poles and these also could be pegged to the ground.
    If anyone has any suggestions please help.

    Got loads of pole kits but no feet, you could easily tie guy lines to the top of the poles and peg the lines.
