Actually, just googled it. It appears that this is what you're referring to:

The Claw - C-200 Awning Anchoring System - The Advanced Aircraft Anchoring System - The Claw Tiedowns

Started out for tie-down for small aircraft.... the more you/awning pull on it, the more it bites into ground....takes a hammer to un-set.

that's it, I got two of the C101's for the awning post hold-downs,.... I emailed them and was told that the C101 and C102 are the same item, actually all the "Claws" are the same item, they just offer different packages,

I got a set also, but don't think they will work in the FL sand, but I'll try them out this winter.

I like them. There have been a couple of times where the ground was too hard packed for a dog tie out (for me, at least). These seem like they may be easier to install.

What is removal like? Just using a BAH to take the "nails" out?

Until you get hit with one or it hits the side of the camper when the wind catches the awning just right!

OC, they might not work as well in Florida beach sand(even though I do think there would be some holding power even there),
but I wouldn't think any campground would be built on beach sand,

The 3 campgrounds we've stayed at in FL are all sand and are not close to the beach. One in Kissimmee, one in Davenport and one in Wachula. We have to run the dog screws all the way down to the handle to get them to hold and they are 16"+ long.
