Awning Tapes I found

I bought these on eBay

eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

The Velcro will allow a fast lighting "tear down" in an emergency and the strips just roll right up with the awning.

Additionally, since I don't have an emergency (no motor) roll up tool, I can attach a mating strip of Velcro to a nylon strap and use one of the tapes as the fixed part of the roll up tool.

You could also use the mod my DH came up with last night to easily remove your light string from your awning in a matter of seconds by unclipping it at both ends. Under mods "New awning mod".

I saw that! Very cool!

I still would need to order that emergency roll up tool from Dometic through. This was 2 birds with one stone.

You didn't get that flimsy piece of strap with your awning?

Sure did!
