What to Look for in an Awning Tie Down Kit

Features of Quality Awning Tie Down Kits

A good tie down kit does more than simply hold your awning down. Quality equipment is designed to evenly distribute tension across your camper awning, holding it in place without causing tears and bends in the mounting brackets. Tie down straps should offer plenty of length so they can work with any size of awning.

Strong winds can quickly and severely damage your awning without the right equipment. Always check the load bearing capacity of your tie down straps to make sure they can handle high winds of speeds up to 40 kmph.

Strength and durability are critical, but the most important factor is ease of use and installation. Make sure that you know how to set up your tie down kit correctly. Practice before you leave for your trip to avoid unwanted surprises out in the wilderness with your family waiting for you to figure it out! Check straps for fraying or tearing and know which loop and knots are the most secure. Check every strap after set up to ensure they have been installed correctly.

Awnings and tie down kits should be a one-time investment. They should always be made with premium materials that are durable and easy to maintain. Awning anchor tie-downs and straps should not attract mildew or rot. Rust and corrosion should never be an issue with quality products. Polypropylene webbing tie down straps and stainless-steel pegs and Springs are a must for any serious camper looking for quality equipment.

This might seem like an obvious one, but tie down kits often have a lot of components. We recommend double checking to make sure your kit includes everything you need. A typical kit will include heavy duty awning tie down straps, camper awning pegs, metal hook pegs, RV awning tie down springs and a metal tension connector.
