Was wondering in anyone knew where to get replacment stakes (black rubber or plastic) Most of mine have broken off. Can't find them. Does anyone have this problem?

I've had this happen too. Not a fan of the plastic stakes. I have a theory, which I haven't tried yet, but I'd like to. I think something heavier, like a metal pipe, elecrical type pipe, something that you can just hammer down into the ground and the light will fit over, but stand more rigid. Those plastic things seem to move too much in the ground and most of my lights a year later are leaning. Some have broken off. One of my friends said you can have the home stores cut up pipe into desired lengths.

I bought cheapo plastic lights at Lowes ($1 ea at the end of last summer), then whittled down those plastic stakes to fit my Westinghouse lights that I bought from here. LAST time I'll buy solar lights from the Q. HSN's solar lights have metal stakes, they are brighter than the Westinghouse and they stay lit longer.
