As a fail safe, put a Velcro strap (or whatever you have) around the awning arms.
I never understood why Zip Dee put the latch in the back instead of the front. Seems like the front would be attacked by the wind first, peeling the cover back.

The best way is to put Loctite Threadlocker on bolt then put the hook on the bolt. be careful. Mine is still there without any issues and it keeps awning from coming loose. I have two hooks.

Another thing about loctite is use green, just put green on threads, it will wick in to nut, plus if have to remove will be easier than, as red is very hard to take apart

I used Red one. I do not want the hook to come off. It works superbly

Follow up to my post #24 Green locktite is self wicking that means it will creep into nut on bolt when applied after nut is applied, plus nut can be removed easily no strain or heat to loosen. When we raced pro & I used a lot of dif. locktite, red if critical not to come loose green if take apart as stated no heat or strain. Locktite was given to us all colors so no worry of cost had all wanted.
