Is your awning encased by a metal cover when it is closed? If so they do not unfurl in heavy wind. For extra piece of mind the awning lock is a good idea. Mine is covered by a metal tube when closed and does not buffet in any type wind.

Drill a hole right through it, inner & outter bars. Shove a bolt through or a pin of some type. There is one used in marine applications for shackles that need to be quickly moved without tools. Can't think of the name of it but it is more a sailing bit of hardware.

See post 3 above. It does happen, even to awnings with the metal weather shield.
