Awning Pole Tie Down Brackets

The subject of tying down an awning to prevent wind damage has been brought up a few times on the forum. I have made a few comments on what I have installed as a permanent fix. Some info is mentioned in these threads:
http://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/f6...e-31224-6.html
http://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/f1...ing-35514.html

I have a few sets of the brackets for sale now. They are designed to install on the Dometic 9100 series awnings. Once installed you can fabricate your own telescoping poles, or utilize multiple brands of painters poles from lowes or Home Depot.

First picture shows the kit that is for sale. This kit includes:
Awning Pole Bracket Kit:
-(2) SS Upper Pole Attaching Brackets
-(2) SS Pole Pivot Bolts & SS Nyloc Nuts
-(2) Hitch Pins
-(2) Lower Stow Brackets
-(4) Pop Rivets (For Lower Brackets)
-(2) 1/4" x 3/4" SS Bolts & SS Nyloc Nuts for Optional Bolts for The Upper Brackets
-Instructions and Pole Dwg Sketch if you decide you want a set like I have.

The brackets are made from 5052 H32 aluminum. The designer / maker of these brackets has them precision plasma cut at Butler Built in North Carolina. For you race fans, this is the same Butler Built that makes a lot of the seats for Nascar. The pilot hole locations are also pierced on the plasma cutter and then the builder drills / chamfers them to the proper size and glass bead blasts the brackets. All nuts and bolts are stainless steel.

Last few pictures are of the brackets and poles installed on my rig. Note: No poles come with this kit. The builder stopped making those, but as mentioned above, you can build your own using the supplied drawing / specs or opt for the painters poles. Paint all to match, and they look as good as they function. The poles can be pinned back to the awning arms and the awning still remains completely functional.

I am selling these few kits I have for $75 each, and that includes shipping.

PM me if anybody is interested.

Did you ever try these out on the carefree? Maybe someone will be more inclined to use them if they saw it on their brand awning. I'm fairly confident they'd work but others may need a bit more proof. Trying to help you move some product

I have one buyer, but that's on a Dometic. I wish I had a carefree to experiment on. I know it would work as I've studied them pretty good. They'd mount fine to that upper bolt that secures the roller assembly. Too bad my father in law didn't have a carefree since he lets me do whatever with his rig. I just put a set on his Dometic, with Turbs poles.

Looking like I'll have to go back to the dark side where these things sell like hot cakes. Had to try. I still have the 2 sets.

I'm waiting to see what brand our awning is, but will definitely want a set of these if there are some available or they can be made, once I know. We pick up next week, if all goes well and our hitch gets installed in the truck in a timely fashion.

Just let me know Vicky / John. I still have a set. I just sold a set recently and hope to see an installed picture in the near future.

I hope to have them installed soon John. I'm just trying to finalize what I want to use as the support pole.

Ok. If it's an A&E / Dometic, it's a direct fit. I still say I could make them work on a carefree, but I don't have one to experiment with and nobody wants to volunteer to try them.
