    After 43 years camping, I invented the ‘Awning Handyman’ which is the most secure device to keep awnings and frame tents locked down in wild weather. This not only stabilises it can also carry out emergency repairs to broken poles and brackets. It also strengthens joints whereas storm straps add additional stress and doesn’t stop damages with down wind.
    Insurance companies should allow discount if campers have one of these in each corner.
    My roof poles are proving valuable to stop the heavy downpours pooling the canvas and collapsing the legs.

      Thanks Dave
      Looks a useful device. We would still always advise taking down an awning in between visits if a caravan is to be left on a seasonal pitch.
