A Conversation for Pins

'Pin' is also used as the name of the large pegs used to hold marquees up. In my experience, these are made of cast iron and are about two-and-a-half feet (75cm) long. They are hammered into the ground for about 2/3 of their length, then the guy ropes holding either king pins (the main poles in the middle of the marquee) or the poles around he edge, holding up the sides, are tied around them.
