Slide Toppers keeping me awake!

Does anyone have a fix for my slide toppers flapping in the wind and keeping me awake? I have seen the deflapper and it would be great but nothing to secure them to other than the awning fabric. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance?

Beach balls.

Some folks will shove beach balls under their toppers when a storm comes in order to improve drainage. Might help with flapping as well. They are cheap and store easily when deflated.

Slide Topper

I can't claim this one, but I have used this.
Run a rope through pool noodles an put it on top of the slides an tie off on each end. It keeps it from flapping in the wind.

This is interesting though I just can't picture it. Do they just lay on top? More detail please.

Shove the small beach ball between the topper cover and the slide top. Don't forget it's there.

I got this one... Thanks though. It is the foam tube suggestion that I am having a problem with.

Run a rope thru a foam tube. Throw it over the topper. Let the foam ride on the edge of the topper so as not to cut it. Tie it down to something.

I made some pvc pipe supports which slide under the topper.....stops the wind and makes the water run off better when it rains.
