The straps worked great alone with out poles on my manual awning on our old trailer, just enough tension to pull a bit on spring. Spring acts like shock absorber so tension stays the same because of it. Less pressure than a light wind can put on it.
A lot of ways to "skin a cat". We lazy old folks like stowing them on the arms for 2 reasons, we can find them and we don't go off and leave them.

These are just the start working on the brackets to fasten them to the uprights but weather hasn't been cooperating. Still only in the 20's here. Using these for our first trip since time is running out and cold isn't. Poles themselves will work good and there is always room for improvement.
