Suggest using dog stake out screws and put 2 or 3 twists in the ratchet straps to eliminate the noise from the straps.

Just a few more top brackets to bead blast and TOWTA will be ready to start packaging the 26 kits. All the hardware came today, so we'll be ready to take orders tomorrow and start shipping Monday.

+1 on the dog stake out screws. Those have worked well in most places. I have had a few sites where the ground was just too hard or rocky to get them in the ground, so I just picked up a pair of these "claws" things. Saw a guy with them at camp recently and they seemed to work very well.

If that (Claw) is that good maybe they should use them on those (Kids Bounce Houses) that blow around all the Time! Youroo!!

When you start shipping those kits, will they include poles?

They are rated for 1200lbs each, and they show it being used for a variety of situations including tie downs for small aircraft. So... my camper may get blown away in a storm but my awning isn't going anywhere!
