I’m sure it’s happened to everyone. You’re playing ultimate on a beautiful, windy day and the cones keep blowing over, making it impossible to tell where the sideline and endzones are, so you keep picking them up and putting the cones back in place.
Well, no more.
I was fortunate enough to receive a package last week with it comes an entirely new way to set up a field – whether it’s for ultimate, soccer, football, DDC, or training.
The clip cones are so simple you’ll say “Why didn’t I think of that?”
You can use them like regular cones, or on windy days, you can clip them into the ground to prevent them from blowing away.

Note: I’ve had a few people ask about the hook from the stakes sticking up out of the ground, so you could use these stakes instead with the Clip Cones: https://www.mec.ca/en/product/1399-013/Aluminum-Wire-Tent-Peg, or if you already have a tent, just borrow those pegs!

About Clip Cones
At Mountain Shadows park on the west side of Colorado Springs, you’ll find a group of hooligans playing ultimate frisbee at noon every Monday and Thursday. For years we’ve chased cones around in the wind, laid them sideways and held them down with rocks or sticks or even snowballs in the wintertime to keep them in place. As they say, necessity leads to invention. By the summer of 2018, supplies were purchased, a patent was filed, and Clip Cones was born.
