We used these to hold our gazebo privacy screens from blowing in the breeze. Just attached one to each screen, then to the wooden frame and now we don't have to worry about things getting blown around. Holds the screens tight and no worry about water entering during a rain storm.

These deflappers are very effective in subduing the effects of a sudden gust of wind or a prolonged windy day. I use two on each end of the awning spaced evenly. They work very well.

After camping without these, and watching the awning billow up, we bought these small ones. What we found is that you need several small ones on both sides in order to control the flapping. They never eliminated the flapping completely. We then bought the larger ones, placing one on each side, this controlled the flapping like the small ones. After buying another set, of the larger ones, and placing two on each side, we had NO flapping - none - nada.

If you don't have De-Flappers on your awning, you won't know what you are missing. These are a tremendous help on windy days. I don't worry near as much. I just wish I would have purchased the larger ones, which are on my wish list. Well worth the money.

Loved these from previous purchase and needed a couple more just to help with the larger awning. Does the job very well! Easy and quick to put on!

We have used these for the past four years on our 20' awning with no noticeable weathering. I feel that if the standard De-Flappers are not sufficient to keep the the awning in control, that the wind is too strong to keep your awning extended. There is larger clamp model now available that seems like overkill since this one works so well.

I too had trouble with the attachment ring breaking. The product has value but is fragile. You can easily break the plastic attachment if you pull it too much. I am going to look at the newer wider version to see if it's attachment point is stronger.

Be Smarter than the clamp

I've got 6 sets of these little guys for 2 campers (3+3) and have found they work great. And yes if your not smart enough to tighten them they will come off. And as for the straps not being long enough I've had them on mine from day one when my campers were new and kept the awinings pulled to the sides. So as far as I see it learn how to use the item before you say its junk. Also to help keep my awning tight I do have rafters 2 for my 25 footer and just 1 in my 20 foot awning. With those and the de-flappers my awnings take most any wind even the strongest ones.

I purchased one set at the last minute shortly before my last camping trip. I used them for 4 days, some VERY windy, and never had to put my awning down. Not once! I am going to buy another set as one set is really not enough and I would feel much better knowing I had more protection. I give these little babies 5 stars. *Kept my awning from flapping in strong wind *Stayed put, never had to re-tighten

We think they're great, we bought 3 pair in Kenora Canada when it was very windy. We were so tired of taking our awning up and down during windy conditions.

They are simple to install and make a HUGE difference - even in a light breeze. I also think somehow they help with faster dry out in the morning! A good value too! We bought 2 pair for our 12' awning. Really helps!

Product works great, but the Velcro straps don't last. After about 2 seasons of use, the weather takes its toll on the straps, and they become brittle and break.

We have been using these for four years and they have never slipped or failed. I would recommend these to anyone that has just purchased a camper or RV with an awning.

Works as advertised, as long as you use them right...

These work great as long as you tighten them down hard enough. -- Make sure the awning is as tight as you can get it with the regular awning tensioners, then hand tighten these as tight as you can. Any kind of looseness by these gadgets or too loose on the awning and these will flap loose. Otherwise, these things work great. I use two on either size. But use more for added strength or larger awnings.

We've used these clamps in 40 mph winds in Phoenix. They hold great and have saved our awning when others have been destroyed. I would hightly recommend these to anyone interested.

We recently purchased a new fifth wheel. Though we have camped for years we did purchase many new items from Camping World. One of my favorite purchases was the Awning De-Flappers. We routinely camp at a windy beach and these were exactly what we needed. They are very easy to use and do the job well. We decided to put two de-flappers on each end because of the constant breeze. I know in the long run they will protect our awning from prematurely falling apart.

I found that you cannot clamp down hard enough on the fabric to hold it, even in a moderate wind. Thus defeating it intended use. I think a softer pad should be installed in the pads.

We used these items in high winds in Colorado. I noticed that one strap was too long....so I centered my awning in the head rail on the camper, and voila! It worked perfectly. These are easy to use, store, and save your awning from noisy flapping--which kept us awake our first night in the mountains. I highly recommend this product for its value and ease of use.
