Don't worry, the clips won't hurt the fabric.

We usually don't hang lights from the awning simply because we don't leave the awning deployed while we are away or over night (due to unexpected gusts, etc...it only takes once)...and lights make it slower to retract....

BUT when we do, we use some clear plastic clips we got at Vintage Trailer Supplies Awning Clips They do a nice job, they are inobtrusive and you can leave them on the lights...they alsio can be use to clip light to other places on your trailer, like on the edge of the rock guard panels (which is where us usually hang our flamingos)... I htink yo might be able to get these at Camping World or other RV supply houses. have fun with your lights!

I did read somewhere here on the Forums that people have actually put grommets into their awnings so they could hang their lights that way using a hook. But that would entail actually making a hole in your awning and applying a grommet. I imagine it would look nice but a lot of work I am guessing.

We just use "binder" clips from Office Depot. They're quite tacky and ugly but work very well and we have been in some windy locations and they did not damage our awning. It may just be my next project to "fancy" them up, lol.

TB, you da man. I went to that website and ordered up a set or two of those clips. They look perfect. My pink flamingo lights thank you!
