Awning Pegs

Every year i buy new pegs because the plastic on the ends break off.

Was thinking of using wing nuts but the pegs are 14 mm diameter so what size wing nuts would i need????

Do they make wing nuts big enough?

Or what do you use??

After a recommendation on here from a CT genius I bought 50 x 10mmx160mm coach screws from screwfix, they are about 6 or 7 inches long - amazing holding power, if you need larger heads you can use cheap washers, they go in and out a dream with a cordless drill and no need to worry about a bit of a breeze pulling one out.

I have used these but my hard standing pegs are Blue Diamond £10 for a box of 20.

Tuff Peg Tops from Penrose Touring were good if they still do them or those plastic

blocks they used for connecting chipboard units together

I got some long and thicker ones with 13mm heads,some penne washers and rubber o ring type washers

Off ebay. But you do need a good drill or big lump hammer.

It can be hard work erecting an awning. A small snack as you work is ideal!

Just beginning our adventure. 95% of my time on CT I use my phone. As a result correct spelling and grammer will be used sparingly. This is due to fat fingers. Please don't let it bother you.

A seemingly problem free 2010 model Adria Altea 542dk that has more than its fair share of use.

Nice washers! I've just bought some, they're better than what I was using, thanks for the pointer clairendave

Ever since a very frustrating time in Derbyshire with plastic awning pegs I have used the screw in type where the ground is hard. 18 volt drill has been OK both for those and caravan legs each time so far. They are widely available on Ebay. £16. 95 for a box of 20

Usually there is a need for 2 or 4 heavy duty fastening at each corner of an awning.

For these I use dog anchors like these, which are like 2 foot corkscrews.
