A 2 1/2" TapCon in each leg into the asphalt is a good solution.(you will need a hammer drill for the holes). If on concrete, a minimum of 40 pounds on each leg is a beginning rule of thumb and required at some comps. A five gallon bucket of water achieves this goal, if the bucket has a lid on it. Bungee cords or ratchet straps are best. If I know it's going to be windy, I use the TapCons and the 5 gallon buckets. If on grass a tent stake at an angle in all four legs and then the corner guy ropes to another tent stake usually keeps them from becoming kites.
Don't use the 8" plastic tent stakes...waste of time and effort...get some real tent stakes. I have some 3/8" rebar stakes that are 18"s long if I need to get serious about it.
