I got fed up crawling around the edge of the awning knocking in pegs , and my knees are not getting younger .

saw  these

https://www.towsure.com/kampa-steel-screw-peg-set-20-pegs

And decided to give them a try , FANTASTIC , awning pegged down in half of the time , and knees fine , all you need is a good battery drill ( most of us now have one for corner steadies )If you have access to an impact driver , even better ,

Can not give them a higher reccomendation .

We simply went to Screwfix and bought 50 coach screw pegs for a lot less than £10.  As we shared the cost with a friend I think it worked out at about £2.50 each.  Does the same job for a lot less.

Not sure the maths work , don't you mean 25p each

in defence of the kampa ones, a driving socket is included and the screws have hooks for awning rubbers 

So at £1 each I am happy

I bought a box of Kampa's and a box of 50 'clones' from fleabay.

In practice the clones have stood up to C&MC site hard standings slightly better than the originals.

Actually, normally end up finish putting then in with a club hammer as even a 36V battery hammer drill fails on some hard standings!

 

Cheers
