I had an old timer rv'r tell me... "in a sudden bad storm, what goes up must come down. QUICKLY"
That was the thinking behind my use of a cloths line to hang the lights on
(Also the high price clips)
1: I use the cloths pins that are attached to the temp cloths line
2: I don't have to take the lights down to roll up the awning
3: I can take 'em down REAL FAST if I want to (like one second) just grab the far end (Far from plug) and pull, or grab the plug end and pull, other than two clips (one at each end) I have to release, it's down, I can even just grab one of the line ends and 'unhook" and take it off the line.... Later
Or I can just retract the awning leaving them on the line
