Marking Whiskers are used as an alternative to other outdoor marking devices. They can be used to mark grades on construction sites, athletic fields, property boundaries, forest trees for harvest, cemetery plots, landscaping, irrigation, and underground utility marking.
Marking Whiskers are most commonly 6” in length and come in APWA colors. They are made to be used with a 60-penny nail or wooden stakes.
For use with a 60-penny nail, insert the nail thru the circular opening of the metal clip, then hammer the nail into the ground.
When using the marking whisker with a wooden stake, hammer the wooden stake into the ground. Then hammer the metal clip into the top of the wooden stake, with the whiskers pointing upwards.
