Question Collapsible Cones?

Has anyone had experience with the lighted collapsible traffic cones? I have been thinking about some as my wife likes to set up cones to mark our entry stairs and keep us from bumping into the slide.

My main concern is: are they heavy enough to be stable in a breeze?

Many thanks for any thoughts you might have.

I had a few, they had rubber feet to help keep them from sliding across pavement but they weren't very stable, a good truck would blow them over - however adding weight shouldn’t be a problem, one could get creative with a pcv coupler - drop it over when extended, any type of ring with weight that wouldn't tear it up. But the winds as of late - mine would have been in texas and I live in tn....

I have a set of three Pack-A-Cone collapsable cones and I'm happy with them. They are weighted enough for a strong wind and even light up and night.

After almost knocking myself out from walking into one of the slides. I decided to use the form type pipe insulator, they are round and pre cut. Bought 2 of them since they are 4 Ft in length.. Cut them down to about 18 inches and slide then on the protruding edge of slide. Works well and definitely inexpensive.

I hung a LIGHT ANGEL above my door, It is in a place where I can remove it (it is screw mounted) for travel from the stairs inside the rig, and hang it easily when parked... Very nice motion detector light, points straight down so the steps are always well lit when I get to the door after dark tonight.
Home is where I park it!
