I just bought some deflappers after having our awning half-tearing off during a recent windstorm. I'd be interested in what the exact products I would ask for would be for the ratchet straps. Where do they attach to the awning?

I tried to explain it in another thread, but thought it simpler to take a picture of it. This is how I do it.

When I had my popup, I had two options, connect the awning poles to the camper, or stake them to the ground. I found staking to the ground always worked best, along with the deflappers. I left that awning up in all kinds of weather and never had an issue. I wonder, do the awning channels and brackets that mount to the bottom of the camper come off? I see what looks like two holes for stakes in the end of those channels where it attaches to the bottom of the camper. Has anyone staked them to the ground?
I just find it a pain to pull out the awning, put in the awning, pull out the awning, etc. I did get those straps with the coil springs, and the stakes that thread into the ground, and they seem to offer good stability.
