Thanks for posting such a nice model - it saved me time! The original was a bit snug on my lights - needed a bit of sandpaper - but it was easy to tweak that in OpenSCAD for my second light.

(Also: where do all these stakes go over the winter, I wonder?)

Was about to make a design of my own, and then thought "hey, check thingiverse, first", and I wasn't disappointed. I like that you were able to design it so the layers were perpendicular to the forces that would normally be placed on the stake. Fits my lights perfectly, and appears sturdy. Thanks for the design.

I too have made replacement stakes for my lights. They really did not hold up well in the garden. What did work was 1/2" PVC pipe stakes with an angled cut to be able to get them in the ground easily. I do like your design and I hope they work well for you.
