The stake itself seems to be a fine product, but I ordered the "24-ft" version of this stake, thinking that meant it would come with a 24-ft-long cable to attach to the stake. It turns out, what they really meant is a "24-in" model, that is a 24-inch-long stake with no cable. Additionally, one image includes a cable attached to the stake in the matching orange color. The description is VERY misleading.
I ordered the longer model for my 80# dog but I couldn't get it into the ground. I should have known better. But even though it's 3-4 inches above the surface, it holds very well. At least I don't have any trouble finding it.
