Coghlan's Expander Pegs

Founded in 1959 by Norm Coghlan, Coghlan’s has become the world’s largest brand of outdoor camping accessories. With everything from tent pegs and camp lights to fire starters, the company is truly a one stop shop for the outdoor accessories you’ll need to stock up on before your next trip. At this year’s Outdoor Retailer Summer Market, Coghlan’s is debuting nine new products for 2015.

“The new products provide campers convenience and safety,” said Product Manager Justin Vandenberg. “Being outdoors with electronics is trending huge, having a power source for these devices is a must, and there is no shortage of it with our new Power Pack. We have a great range of new items that will help make being outdoors more enjoyable, at home or in the backwoods.”

Check out the nine new products below. Product information provided by Brittani Hensel from BLASTmedia.

Expander Pegs

The humble tent peg has been around for quite some time, subjected to fierce winds and loads in all types of terrain while trying to hold down the fort. Not much has changed over the years, until now. Coghlan’s Expander Peg is a doubled legged peg made of spring steel metal with super strong holding power—closing the legs and then hammering it into the ground will create tension on the legs, securing the peg in place. The patented design resists twisting, turning, and pulling out better than all the rest. Best for small- to medium-sized tents, tarps and shelters in loose or firm ground.


Headlamp or Flashlight? Can’t decide? No problem with the Coghlan’s Multi-Light. This bright headlamp features a comfortable head band with a pivoting chassis for light in any direction. Plus, the Mulit-Light can be removed transforming it into a handheld flashlight. The Multi-Light features a simple On/Off button for bright reliable light in any form. It features 20 lumens with a run-time of 12 hours.

120 Lumen LED Tent Light

This bright 120 Lumen LED provides 360-degree light diffused through a soft silicone lantern shell. With up to 40 hours of run time and four brightness levels, the Tent Light will cast a
comfortable glow inside a tent or around the picnic table. The handle features a split hoop so that it can be hung from anywhere. Made from a durable silicone material so that it can
survive bumps and falls.

6′ Gear Lock

The Coghlan’s 6’ Gear Lock is designed to protect a variety of items around the house, wilderness or out at the campsite. A sturdy 12-milimeter steel cable with a vinyl cover protects your gear from scratches and deters would be thieves. The resettable four-digit combination can be set to one of 10,000 possibilities, plus it has an LED illuminated dial to see your code at night. Available in two high-visibility colors: Red and Yellow.

Fiberglass Tent Pole Replacement Kit

The Coghlan’s Fiberglass Tent Pole Replacement Kit replaces broken or damaged tent poles.

Durable materials make this Coghlan’s Tent Pole Replacement Kit a long-lasting choice for outdoor use. This kit can save you the expense of buying a brand new tent and is easy to set up and use.

Fire Discs

Coghlan’s Fire Discs are an ideal fuel source starting campfires or wood stoves. Made of cedar and highly-refined wax, they are designed to light easily and to burn hot. Since most meals take less than 30 minutes to cook, they are a perfect solution as an emergency source of heat for cooking. Breaks apart in quarter sections extending its usage for multiple fires.
