Caravan Motorhome Awning Tie Down Kit 12.5M Non Bu&hellip by PLS

2.0 out of 5 stars Overall, pretty poor, 12 Sep 2014
I bought this to provide some extra security on a motorhome sun awning. The awning seems so flimsy I daren't leave it out in anything beyond a gentle summer breeze. I have used this strap once so far, and it certainly worked, but I am not very impressed with it.

Firstly, the ground spikes. They are made from fairly soft flat sheet metal bent in to shape, and the hooks on them consist of a bit of vaguely-S-shaped metal threaded through a hole in the spike and held in place with a really pathetically tiny little spot weld which doesn't look much bigger than a solder joint on a circuit board. If the ground is at all firm, you have to use a metal hammer to get the spike in, because a… Read more

Bought this as a gift for someone (a pilot, obviously). It was very well received and gave everyone a good laugh. It's a plain but nice big chunky mug and the design looks very good. Given the price it's a bit of a shame they couldn't stretch to putting it on both sides, one star off for that.

I also can't begin to fathom the thinking behind the taking of the picture, why on earth would you photograph it like that, so that you can't quite see the design properly? Potty.
