    Would you mind posting the details like dimension and material used? I'll come up with my own design pattern, but knowing how heavy material to use would be a great help!
    The center and both outside verticle pieces are 5/8" rebar, the horizontal pieces are 3/4" rebar and the diagonal pieces are 1/4" rebar. The center is 5'6" tall the width is 2 1/2' and the feet are 6"x6"

    So the flat is beside the main foot of the hook?? Like a fence post?

    When i designed my hooks 8 years ago i did something different than everyone else. They all use a seperate rod bent 90* and now you have to pound 2 pcs of rod into the ground. I can pound my hook thru blacktop and i have done it at craft shows. I cut the bottom of the shepherd hook at a 45 with my bandsaw then i cut a piece of 1/4x2" flat 7 inches long and its also cut on a 45 to cut the soil. Then i weld it on the hook so there is 10"-12" of hook at the bottom of the flatbar. So they are pounded in the ground 18-19 inches and they will not tip. Thats what is nice about the flatbar because you can use a big hammer to drive them in if needed. I leave a small gap between the hook and flatbar one for weld penetration and the other to get paint in the crack. That flatbar needs welded on good and i have never had one break off. Those other guys hooks i fix at least a dozen a year with the China one tack on each side....Bob

    When i used to go to the craft shows i hung cement blocks on my hooks to show how good they stayed up.

    Bob, do you do anthing different on your "feet" to support the weight on the hooks?

    I keep having mine fall over (especially just a one sided hook)....course my feeder hold too much food !!!

    I just saw a square design I though about trying, with four pieces sticking into the ground.

    Thanks
    Ed

    Like the back feet. I had been thinking about doing that myself.

    Nice job.
