So what is your preference when selling up your larger fireworks. Bury them to the marketr or stake them in. What do you use? I generally stake and I use grow poles from homebase. They are strong and spiked for easy insertion.

Staking every time, burying takes far to long and makes a mess of the firing site unless using buckets/boxes. I use thin metal poles from an old tent lol.

I usually just put a few big bricks around a cake. smaller tubes i just put in a bucket of sand or small stones.

:) A pallet actually is a great idea :) if im firing on hard ground, normally use chipboard 8x4 is only £12.99 from B&Q with some no more nails to stick the cakes down. Cheap but gets the job done.
