They come in all sizes.
Screw these studs into the wood blocks and fasten the legs with wing nuts and washers.
You will simply have to drill your pilot holes all the way through the leg and the block at the same time this way everything will line up.
This way you can take it down and put it away at the end of the season.
If you are doing this by hand it will do you well to number and letter the legs and wood block so they go back to the same spot every year.
Lets say Tepee a leg one.
The block would have a big A on it and 1234 on each side.
The leg would have A 1 though 4 on each leg.
Now both of the studs will have to be parallel as close as you can get so they will slide on and off.
