This gaurd looks stronger than the one we purchased a couple years ago. I took the thing out on the first job and bent feet trying to set it up. This thing was something like $270 or something, we tried to get new parts from the manufacturer but they were a little dodgie. We ended up pitching it and making up our own systems. The plywood leaned against a pointed shovel works great, we even carry a fence post when we know we will need it. I like a 4' - 6' metal bar (rebar even) with a hook on top, and a mesh tarp. Much lighter than the plywood and sets up fast. Just gotta put the gromits over the hook and instant wall. Cheap too, wish I had a picture of it set up.
