Hello fella10'
I have a box of those clips, they hold very well, and they will move down your rail with the movement of your clothing and scratch it up. I know that it is your stuff. Enjoy your stuff.

Brother les makes a valid point. Scratching is a function of using a harder surface (spring steel) against a softer painted surface. If, the hanger gets movement from the wind, it will move the clip. So, coat it to cushion the clip and change the harder surface to a surface softer than the painted awning arm. The end.

Powder coating is very hard to scratch....used on lots of high dollar race cars,mine included......but, I suppose there are those that could screw up a --- dream. What kind of idiot would not be careful ....squeeze the handle...that's what it's there for.

On a breezy day I could see the clips moving around with the clothes hanging on them.

Those large ones have a lot of bite.....but, as was noted earlier, there is a coating that can be applied avalible at HD....in different colors also......alot of pliers come with this coating.......sort of rubberizing.

its a clip,
you have to OPEN it to put it on,
you have to OPEN it to take it off,
mine CLIPS onto the metal and don't move,
yes, I can PUSH/FORCE it down the rail,
the wind blowing the clothes will certainly blow the clothes around,
but it won't move MY clips,

But what if a hurricane AND a tornado containing sharks comes through.. It could move!! LOL

Seriously.. Such a simple idea, I like it.
