Most ppl I see have ratchet straps from the awning tube to hooks in the ground? I usually just bring my awning in if there is going to be wind, but OC's brackets are nice I have seen them on an RV

This may be the best idea I have seen yet! I just bought a pair and they are well built. It will take very little work to make a connection to the awning. You have to be careful buying from Harbor freight but these poles and their adjustment clamp work very well and I think they will last. They even have a decent foot. If they don't last, you are out $25.81.

Make sure you get a bracket kit.

Old Coot owns the right side of the Twix bar and Turbs owns the left side.

Been going to make mine permanent for a while thanks for getting me thinking about this again. This is what I came up with to attach it to the awning support. A PVC plug cut a 1/4 inch slot on one side drill a 1/16 inch hole through the the end of the rod end of the original pole and through the PVC so it will rotate into the slot. Drill a hole in top of the PVC and through the awning arm to attach it.

Only thing I've found is that they are not sealed so water does get in only thing I've found to do is drill a small drain hole at lowest point. Trying to figure out how to seal them.

I built metal brackets for mine today. I will rivet them to the awning tomorrow. I wouldn't worry about sealing them if you have found a way to drain any water that gets in since they are powder coated. I'm very glad I found your post. Many guys have used painters poles, but these poles from Harbor Freight are much stronger and much cheaper and come with a foot.
