    Default Anchoring / Securing Blowmolds

    How do you guys secure your blowmolds: one from wind / blow-over, two from theft / vandalism. Last year I only had 4 or 5 so I tied them to a wooden stake and let them be. This year my collection has grown to approx. 30+. Now I'm a little more concerned. Do I just bite the bullet and say it is what it is.

    For the reindeer and Santa, I use camping stakes and green florist wire. It is a pain to do but it stays in place for the wind.

    To keep mold from blowing over I use re-bar, a piece of pipe or even a garden state and drive it into the ground and slip the mold over it. I even used plastic bags filled with rock and placed them in the bottom of some molds.

    As for security, you can tie the light cord and plug together, also run a piece of cable though all the molds.
