Soria awning hold down

I need to know if there is any way to tie down a Solara awning. Old coots said his brackets won't work and I would like to have a way of securing this thing so I can sit under it in a storm and not have to worry about it turning into a parachute.

Can you post a picture of it and a second picture showing the awning rolled out displaying the very end?

Took mine apart so you can see how to mount it. The OC backets work perfect. Do not use the cheapo ratchet straps, spend a few more dollars.

Soria awning hold down

I've been using the OC brackets on my Solera awning for two years. Mounted just like above. Work great.

I needed support for my patio room on my new trailer which has a Solaria electric awning and could not find any available on line.
So I made my own supports out of the an old pair of manual awning rafters ( from a storm damaged awning), a pair of large foam padded d-rings and ratchet straps.
I squared the ends of the rafters and installed plastic plugs for the poles with a small ss screw in the top plug.
The poles are inserted in to the accessory grove of the awning and the d-rings are clipped on the shafts at each end with the ratchet straps to ground anchors.
They work great and are easy to put up, take down, are adjustable and light weight.
