- A new idea to separate and connect! One piece has three different lengths. Eliminates the need to align pegs by length
- Next-generation pegs that coexist with nature with a "system that replaces only consumable parts" that changes the common sense of "peg is disposable"
- Multi-functional pegs aimed at camping multi-tools that can also be used as a bonfire or lantern stand
It is very difficult to bring many pegs of different lengths and it will break. We will solve the problems that pegs have with the new idea of "disassembling and connecting". Change the length by dividing and connecting. Multi-functional peg "TSUNAGU" made of stainless steel that firmly supports it. Designed for a multi-tool that can be used in a variety of camping scenes, it is a must-have for next-generation campers.
■ Heavy luggage becomes lighter
By extending one peg, TSUNAGU eliminates the need to prepare pegs of different lengths independently, making the luggage much lighter.
The hard part of pegs is that you have to prepare pegs of different lengths and put them in your backpack. Plastic is easy to break, so you need at least 6 sturdy forged pegs x 3 different lengths and about 18. The pegs occupy more than 3 kg as 180 g / book.
■ High cost performance! Parts replacement system that can be used forever
The peg will be thrown away if it bends or the part hit with the hammer is damaged. By dividing it into three parts, only the worn part can be replaced, and the original peg can be restored. The environmentally friendly design enhances the attachment to the product.
TSUNAGU changes the common sense that "peg = disposable".
■ Can be used for multiple purposes and enhances entertainment
* Sheets and firewood in the image are not included in the delivery contents.
TSUNAGU aims to be a multi-tool for camping and outdoor activities while being a peg. By replacing the head part with an optional part, it will be reborn as a multi-tool that will be a big success in camping.
■ At night, it turns into a lantern stand
A lantern stand is completed by inserting a ready-made hook (sold separately) between the head and shaft. By being able to divide it, there are various possibilities for utilizing ready-made products. In the future, we will develop various optional parts such as heads with hooks according to your request.
Three lengths have been achieved with one peg. The required length of the peg varies depending on the condition of the ground on which it is inserted and the environment such as the weather. TSUNAGU, whose length can be changed, aims to be an all-round peg that can be used in various environments.
By adding a shaft with a length of 12 cm, the total length of the peg can be extended to 20 cm, 32 cm, and 44 cm. You don't have to carry a lot of pegs with you, just put an additional shaft in your bag and you're safe on any ground.
Made of strong stainless steel, we made a sturdy peg that does not bend easily. You can hit it hard with a hammer without worrying about it even on hard ground.
The rust-resistant stainless steel material is ideal for outdoor activities where the weather changes. It provides the same quality even in the rain or wet ground.
Align the screw parts and assemble the three parts into one. Tighten the screw on the head and tip by hand.
* If you hit it with a hammer while it is loose, it may cause the screw to break.
The taut rope will not come off even if it is almost vertical. When using it, please be careful about safety and security, such as devising a way to tighten the rope to prevent it from coming off due to looseness due to strong winds.
If it is a 20 cm peg, you can easily pull it out by twisting the main body to create a gap in the ground. For 32 cm and 44 cm pegs, tap the side lightly with a hammer to make a gap and pull it out from the ground. When pulling out, you can pull it out naturally by applying a force clockwise so that the screw part does not come off.
By dividing TSUNAGU into three parts, it became a peg with expandability. For example, by developing an optional "head part" with a hook for hooking a lantern, it will be a multi-tool that can be used in all scenes of camping.
We are planning to solicit ideas from everyone for development parts, prioritize the development of optional parts that will please those who use them, and release them on Makuake. We are looking for ideas for Makuake messages and comments!
We have prepared a revolver unit to fix 6 pegs. Not only the functionality as a storage, but also the design will tickle your heart.
■ Revolver separately available
■ 6 shafts that change the length
A shaft for adjusting the length of the peg is available for the return. By adding a shaft with a length of 12 cm, the total length of the peg can be extended to 20 cm, 32 cm and 44 cm. If you extend it further, it may be used for purposes other than pegs. I hope you find a fun way to use it while playing around.

The name "TSUNAGU". In addition to the functional meaning of extending the pegs divided into three parts and exchanging parts to connect them, it also has the meaning of wishing for satisfaction and enrichment in the camping scene. We will connect a valuable space where you can talk quietly while watching the bonfire in nature with your casual friends.
It also has the meaning of connecting businesses. A town factory with high technology is an important asset of Japan. We work with design partners on product planning that makes the most of our technology, and we support the distribution and sales network to bring it out to the world. Taking advantage of each other's strengths, we will continue to provide customers with products that are more functional, innovative, and have high added value than existing products.
* The pegs mass-produced in this project are made in China and are not manufactured at the town factory.
The design of TSUNAGU is handled by Mr. Oi, an up-and-coming product designer "Pit-A-Pat". Mr. Oi has an office in Katsushika-ku, Tokyo, and is a comprehensive producer of product development at the town factory. We are a product designer who is active in the town factory, proposing exciting solutions to the problems faced by the town factory.
LEVEL1 is a professional team for crowdfunding. It is composed of members with abundant business experience such as logistics, planning / marketing, and customer support. In addition to the business of introducing attractive overseas products to Japan, we are also working on regional revitalization through "manufacturing x crowdfunding" through a network with domestic town factories. We will contribute to the local community through activities that energize Japanese SMEs.
Q1: Please tell me about the product warranty.
A1: If the product is in a state where it cannot be used normally at the time of delivery, we will replace it free of charge only if you contact us within one month after arrival. Please contact support. The stainless steel used in this product may have fine scratches at the material stage. Although we have carefully treated the surface, we cannot erase all the scratches, so we will ship the scratches to the extent that there is no problem in use as a good product.
Q2: Is there after-sales support?
A2: Yes, our LEVEL 1 will take care of support after sales. Please contact us from the Makuake exclusive message.
Q3: Will replacement parts be sold at Makuake or other online shops?
A3: Yes, we are planning to sell it. We will make preparations so that you can purchase at any time from the Makuake store, Amazon, TSUNAGU dedicated site, etc.
Q4: Isn't the strength weakened by dividing?
A4: The strength of stainless steel itself is determined by the material, and it does not change even if it is divided. There is a possibility that the screw part will bend by concentrating only on the joint part and applying a strong force.
Q5: Is it okay to use it like any other peg?
A5: Basically, there is no problem. When assembling, use it with the screw part firmly tightened. Using a hammer with loosely tightened screws may cause the screws to break.
Q6: Where do you manufacture?
A6: We design in Japan and manufacture in China. Originally, a prototype was manufactured at a domestic town factory, and when we asked a Chinese factory with the same design, a prototype equivalent to domestic production has come up. In addition, during mass production, we will check the quality of products sent from China in Japan in partnership with the factory in Tsubamesanjo, Niigata Prefecture, which is famous for manufacturing. We have a quality check system in which items that do not meet the standards are removed and delivered to our customers.
Q7: What is the money-back guarantee?
A7: If you are not satisfied with the product within 30 days of the arrival of the product, we promise a "Full Money Back Guarantee". If you wish, please contact dedicated support. We will ship the item in advance from the customer, confirm the arrival of the item, and then take the refund procedure.
