Awning Hooks

I have another thread going on the forum about awning hooks. There isn't a place on our Bambi awning to clip anything and I don't want to damage the awning material itself.

Anybody else around here figured out a way to put up hooks for hanging lights without damaging the awning?

Sorry, Kathleen - I imagined you had a hanging flap like the one on my ZipDee. Do you have any pictures of your awning? Perhaps that would lend a clue.

Good luck. Pat

Somebody, please, point me to the road.

We have seen expensive awning hooks, but we chose to use inexpensive metal binder clips. You can buy the medium sized ones at any office supply or at Walmart.

Thanks, my friends. I sent away for some clips from a place called "Vintage Trailer Supplies" which was suggested by another poster. They had what looked to be a perfect solution. I can't wait to get them so the world can celebrate my pink flamingo lights with me. Nothing says 'class' like pink flamingo lights, wouldn't you agree?
