What I have done. Take your awning rod and re-bend the top to to make it about 4"-5" long. Now walk to the rear of your rolled up awning. You should be able to see the hole in the roller tube, this is the same hole that the pull down strap slides in. Put the awning rod into this hole. The rod will now be hanging beside the awning leg. Take a lenght of rope and run it through the bottom loop of the awning rod then run the rope through the hole in the awning foot tie the ends together and your awning is locked.
I put some clear tubing over the rod in a few places to keep it from scratching the arms and hold it it to the arm with small bungee cords.
I now make them out of polished SS for friends and to sell. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>
Let me know how much and how I can get one.

Here are a couple of DIY awning locks.

Bolt on

Chain & hose clamp

I put on two of the chain & hose clamp version and have never had a "unfurl" problem. I have driven in some strong cross winds that could have caused problems.

If nothing else, they give me peace of mind and are inexpensive to build and install yourself.

I am new to MH ownership and was wondering about the Weatherpro electric awning. Do I need to be concerned that this design can open up while traveling like a manual awning can do? Also does the electric motor act as a locking device?

Thanks

The WeatherPro can not come unrolled while under way from the wind.

I just purchased an "Awning Saver" from one of irv2's sponsors, RVupgrades.com. It seem like it will do the job.
