We are so very pleased with these awning de-flappers...better than any others we've seen. Does a wonderful job and I don't know how we got along without them before! Definitely worth the money if you want to put your awning down and not worry about it in a breeze.

The de-flapper worked well until I over tighten them one day and the big rubber hand nuts came off the medal bolts. Once that happened they can not be used anymore. So be careful not to over tighten.

Excellent Way to Save Your Awning!

February 06, 2013
We bought these because the RV we bought was older as was the awning, and the first season, there was a wind storm that just about ripped the awning off. Now, we never worry about rolling the awning back up at all. When we open up for the season, we put on the De Flapper Max's on each side - 1 pair per side, and never roll up the awning until the end of the season, and we haven't had any problems since. We've survived two tornado warnings with 50 mph winds going through the area and some severe thunderstorms with no problems. We do usually drop the awning, when possible, but we NEVER roll it up anymore. No flapping of the awning at all. We do also use a bungie cord and a tent stake to hold the awning down at all times as well.

Not What I Expected

October 30, 2012
Looking at a picture of these de-flappers, they LOOK like they would hold way better than anything on the market. Turns out, that isn't true. I already had four of the smaller/narrower types and added a pair of these as we were going to be in a higher average wind area for several months. The first time I tightened them down, one of the knobs split where it is molded around the bolt head. I took it back apart and poured epoxy into the split area. I also epoxied around the non-broken one as well. So far, that repair has held pretty well so far. Another issue with these units is that after a while, they don't close as tight at each end as they do in the middle. After only a couple of months of use, they are showing a lot more wear & tear than I would have hoped. the last item I need to mention is the bleaching that happens to the straps. After only a few days in direct sunlight, the black straps or more of a tan now, nearly beige. Sun bleaching happened quickly. I don't think that has caused the straps to decrease in strength but it does add to eclectic look of a blue & white awning with black de-flappers and beige straps.

What a difference these have made with our awning. We recently were out and had them on and when a storm came with low winds we did not even take the awning down and we could not feel the awning flapping any more. Have purchased a small set to add to them up higher to help out.

Bought the De-Flapper Max for use with my older awning and they worked great. On our last camping trip went through a heavy rain storm with high winds and the de-flappers performed beyound expectations. I recommend these to protect you awning and keep the fabric taunt in windy conditions.

First time attaching took a couple of minutes to figure out how the velcro strap worked, then attached it and it worked great. Awning was very sequre. Just don't unscrew the handle too far or the nut falls off, I will add a second nut to eliminate this happening. In conclusion I am very pleased with it.

These are priced reasonably and shipping was fast. They are easily installed and appear to hold well. The only negative point I can find is the black straps. They faded to a fairly light brown in about 5 days in the sun. They sort of stand out with a black clamp and dark blue awning.. Colorful I guess.

We gave these De-Flappers a good test on our latest trip. Our campground was near a lake and if you have been around lakes or any large bodies of water, there is always wind. The De-Flappers worked like a charm. Very easy to attach to the edge of the awning. I would recommend these to all RVers who want the flapping to stop!

For protection from high wind this product is well thought-out, well constructed, sturdy, and simple to use. It has a screw-down hard plastic clamp with an inner rubberized grip that firmly holds the awning in place. The clamp is attached to a wide Velcro strap that adjusts to anchor to the awning frame to reduce damaging wind stress and noise from flapping.

These are excellent de-flappers. Better than most that you find in Canada. However when you order them you will be charged an exorbitant fee by the delivering company. For this reason alone I will not and I would you also not to order on line because the items will cost you almost double for what you thought you would pay. These prices are not up front. Bee Careful when you order

I have used three of these deflappers on each side of my 16 foot awning. In three years I had one come loose in strong winds. Just reinstalled and tightened more. We have been in 35+ MPH winds with nary a problem. Would buy again if one broke, but so far, so good. I am a fulltimer and have been on the road since May '07. I use my awning extensively. BTW we left Alaska in May '07...

We have used them for years and they are great. We love camping at the beach and there is always wind at the beach. Don't pull them to tight because we stretched our awning. We have a 21 ft awning use the De-Flapper MAX and secure our awning in the center and we are good.

We have had a set of these de-flappers for a couple of years and love them. They are easy to attach (with velcro straps), stay in place, and hold up well with regular use. We have a 16 foot awning on our trailer and use them all the time. On only one occasion when it was extremely windy did I wish I had a second set to use. Very happy with the purchase.

as a whole they do hold the awning better then nothing , but they only catch is had one of the nylon straps that hold the flapper to the awning brace tare right at the velcro area all the way across! This made the flapper unusable, did try and contact the company which made the De-Flapper never got an answer back!! Did use a standard small tie down strap with a clip to take the place of the standard strap , which it now works Ok , but for only 12 times of use think it should have lasted longer then that!

The two I have work well, but I had to add two to three inches to each strap, because it will not reach from the awning frame to the awning. Also, two to three sets are needed for my 20 foot awning.

We bought these and found out quickly that we needed three per each side of awning.So far we haven't had any problems like the rest of the reviews are saying ,but I am not saying we won't. Great item to buy to help hold awning,just make sure you purchase enough for THREE PER SIDE,and hope you or don't have the problems in the other reviews.With what there saying in the other reviews I would say purchase these when they go on sale

As with the other reviews, I found that the life of the flapper was about 2 years. The velcro straps only lasted a year. There is no way only 1 could work per side. We have to use 3 per side for it work. The Max is the best.

Good idea, but needs better design


391 out of 756 people found this review helpful.
September 21, 2007
These worked pretty good for about 6 months, then I noticed that I had to tighten more and more to keep the awning from slipping out. It seeemed than maybe the sun or tension started warping up the outer ends of the clamp, leaving just the center section to really grab hold of the awning. After having to tighten harder, eventually one of the knobs came off the tightening bolt making the clamp unuseable. I sent a email to Camco to see if they will send a replacement. Will add additional comment when I get their response. Currently, I believe that it would take two sets of these clamps of the current design to work for the long term. That would reduce the clamping force neccessary for each clamp to be more in its real life design limits. I like the product, but if they expect a single clamp on each side to do the job, it should probably have a larger clamping surface and more reliable tightening knob.

I was camping in the desert and fond that I need then De-Flappers. I could watch the awning blow away in a large gust, roll it up or add the flappers. I decided to use the flappers and was VERY pleased. They are not going to prevent the awning being removed from the side of the RV so you MUST use common sense. My only issue is that I am short and needed a step. They are very easy to put on and I suggest that if you use your awning that you have 4 of these to use

I bought my De-Flapper about a year ago and had used it twice. The third time I was using it, the sewn thread came apart. The sewn thread holds the strap together. I had to improvise to use the one that came apart. When installed, they do work great. Just need a little more attention to detail when the parts are sewn together.

Bought these off the shelf in a small camp store while at the CG...heavy gusts of wind kept us from using the awning most of the first part of the week long trip but after we installed the Awning De-Flapper Max they saved the trip and allowed us to use the awning in conjunction with awning tie-downs. These worked great, very little movement of the awning fabric, great hold, no fuss! Well worth the money!!

I purchased and installed two of these for my RV awning. I have not experienced any problems with the knob that has been mentioned here. They seem to be well built and durable. In any case, the afternoon after I installed them we were hit by a thunderstorm accompanied by strong winds. Absolutely no flapping of the awning. Installation couldn't be easier. Less than 5 minutes total. I highly recommend this product.

I really was suprised in the performance of the De-Flapper Max. The only problem I have with it is that the wrap does not allow me to draw it tight enough for my paticular awning so I have to wrap it around the arm twice. I enjoy it very much and it most deffinately was money well $pent! I will be buying more of these for the rest of my awnings as well as all my friends are now going to purchase them. Held up very well in a very strong wind situatuion. Thanks!!
