We at ivalueSafety.com want to share a quick safety tip for your outdoor fun this summer. Place a rebar cap on horseshoe stakes to eliminate an impalement hazard. Rebar caps are utilized in the construction industry to eliminate impalement hazards on vertical rebar.
The rebar caps are inexpensive and can be purchased at home improvement box stores. Just confirm that the cap is properly sized for the diameter of stake being utilized. We have addressed this issue in one of our local parks that was utilizing rebar for stakes and without caps.
