A couple of the pet leash anchor screw in's are a good investments. Combined with rope & bungies for some flexability are good, if you can reach some good ground.

Lee Valley Tools has the perfect ground cleat for securing awning feet.Light weight easy to install and release. They can be used for a multitude of applications and if I could figure out how to add a photo I would. You can check the on line Lee Valley Catalogue. Oh yeah very inexpensive!

Do you mean this:
Ground Anchor - Lee Valley Tools
or this:
Multi-Purpose Anchor Stake - Lee Valley Tools

How do you all keep the legs of a canopy in a gallon of sand, water or? without those legs just flying out of the bucket????
I have a free standing ez up that blew over the 1st camp out last spring. Those legs just moved, fell and wripped the entire metal frame. We bought a new one, and do want to put it on the deck overlooking the river where it can get mighty breezy. What would you suggest for this type of set up? I think the ground anchors look great but on a wooden deck that would not work for either the camper or the canopy.

The spikes can go into the ground or wood, the anchor can remain permanent. You just use the screw in eyelet to anchor the awning arm. This allows you to just unscrew it when it's time to pack up. This can be used in both a permanent location or on the road. So, the spikes can go in the ground or wood. I suppose it could also be set I'm concrete but, then the anchor would have to stay behind.

Yes Donna, I am thinking either the quick shade canopy weight set or one of those sand bag velcro sets. I think I would want at least 2 of the quick shade sets making that at least 40 lb - and then maybe some concrete bricks over that to hold down the weights.
I bet if I do all this the canopy will rip or blow away and I will end up with only the legs. That would be about my luck.

If we had to depend on MY luck - the awning would still be there - the trailer would be gone!

Exclamation anchors

OK - now since the original question was how to hold things down when it is sitting on CEMENT - just what is everyone planning to use to drive these stakes, ground anchors, screw-in diddly-doos etc INTO THE CONCRETE?

Just curious.....

My question too,it seems everyone sort of veered off the concrete part of the question?

Has anyone stayed somewhere where there were no picnic tables at the sites?

They are big,heavy,have many spots for attachment and are always there when I am on cement which come to think of it I have never been camping on and used an awning?

Oh and "diddly-doos"?!:
I like that!
