I have always been a bit wary of the compression dubiculous on mine, and I leave a tent peg in the holes to provide some security if it drops.
The jack method used on the stock stands is notorious for failure as the notches get worn and that's likely why they don't use that method on automobile jacks any more.
For those who may not know it, the correct way to use them safely and make them last is to get the egg slightly nose down, drop the stands and lock them, then raise the nose to level. Reverse the procedure when leaving. By not actually using the jack under weight
, the lip and notch edges don't wear out.
Gina, if your tent peg is aluminum, it might bend and be hard to remove, but if it's steel, it should be good. I use my large Phillips screwdriver as the lever for snugging the fit on setup.
