All of us who have ever tried to drive a forked stake into the ground in building a rack, crane or the like, have found it difficult to do without splitting the fork. If instead of a fork a straight piece with a prong on one side is used, it will serve the purpose just as well and be much easier to drive. The sketch will make this clear.
Also if the top of the stake is carved with a jackknife or sharp ax before driving, it is not nearly so apt to split This applies as well to tent stakes or any other stake that is to be driven.
