These little nifty end caps protect us men/women’s from poking you eyes out,impaling yourself etc.When splicing the next rebar cage ,these come of,supposed to save them,nah.Some yes,but for furniture bottoms,stake safety etc.Another choice.

I use irrigation pipe. Comes in a big roll and already curved, Cut the ends at a
point for an easy push into the soil.

Dollar store tennis balls, unless for the sport, but decent pup toys. Good idea for
garden stake toppers. I've got a few on stakes down the driveway to help guide the
way after a light snowfall that is not enough to bother shoveling but covers the path
