Does anyone know where I can buy pot irons (1/2 or 3/8) on or relatively close to the outer banks? I need about 150 or 160 of them.

Irons or Frames are re-bar that is secured to the base of a MD style crab pot to act as a anchor... Cool

$12.95 if you buy 100 Grin

Mayos (252)926-8601 should have 3/8 irons for around $3.50 each.

I might have some larger than 3/8's if interested. Not sure how many, we tied them in groups of 10 but hidden in the weeds and behind stuff at moment.  Also I would say Mayo's prolly has the cheapest ones around other than doing it yourself. Could check Eddy Heath in Crisfield, Md if willing to travel.

The one reason I use irons (we call them frames here on the Shore), especially on peeler pots is to provide strength.  They keep the pots square and help with stacking them.  Two bottom side of the pots don't have bracing wire the way I do them so the "frame" ties the bottom/bracing wire of the pot together.  That way I save on 2 26" pieces of bracing wire.  Of course anchoring the pots is the first reason.  Without irons, the pots are everywhere after a storm....
