Ground Peg  (Lie flat safety operation)

(Awning Storm Poles)

AHA LieFlat ground pegging

Selecting this quality stainless steel ensures each A.H.A. will last a lifetime in comparison to all other ground pegging components which constantly break, bend or unsuitable. 

The A.H.A. also limits lifting pressure direct onto its anchor as it is absorbed through the hinge pin. 

Some ground pegs used on a daily basis either have to be protected or removed at night for your and other persons safety. If the latter, fresh undisturbed ground has to be found for re-use the following day.

Unhook your guy, rubber ladder, pole or dog leash in seconds and the A.H.A. lies FLAT and safe at ground level, or just below, or even under your ground sheet or mat. Read the advantages below.....

Another helpful new product from 'Awning Handyman'

Seasonal pitch owner!

* Awning requires removal on each departure!

* Ground pegs removed for safety!

* On return, re-pegging into soft ground!

The A.H.A. can be left in the ground throughout your holiday week/month/season or year. 

They could also be used to maximize Awning entry areas without the need for removing pegs on a daily basis or conning for safety.

Further use as dog ties, clothes line anchor or any game anchor.

Already, customers are sending very positive reviews and cannot believe this simple modification to a solid ground peg has never been designed earlier.

'Awning Handyman Storm, Roof and Multipurpose poles have been withdrawn from sale due to retirement.

Just one set can be used for:-

Storm, Roof, Veranda, Aerial,  Kampa Rear Upright Pole, even to erect your Awning single handed and more...

The 'Awning Handyman' is the strongest and most versatile storm pole in the U.K. as it is unlike basic storm poles with pole spring attachment and small plastic foot for  wire ground peg. It has a solid pole attachment with clamping both top and bottom to secure to poles and strong ground pegs. When in position, it locks poles in their brackets, protects the awning through 360 degrees in gales, strengthens your joints and gives additional support to your roof and legs. There is no other invention that is capable of doing all this in one set-up! 

The stronger your defense is, the safer your expensive caravan and awning will be, plus, it could save your holiday!

It's set-up and removal time is less than two minutes and when attached to my A.H.A. LieFlat ground peg, it can be detached leaving the ground peg in position for further use time and again as it lies flat under your ground sheet, carpet or on decking. 

The 'AWNING HANDYMAN' has a multitude of uses at less than half the cost of all similar individual poles.

*Customers comment

The "Awning Handyman" poles are like fire extinguishes - you should

buy them before you actually need them not after.

**Customer review from North East caravan park!**

Read Steve's impressive results after purchasing my storm poles and 

A.H.A LieFlat ground pegging in my 'Blogs' section. His awning

survived every storm and heavy snow falls in 2017-2018.

Video Clips  See how Hurricane Gonzalo wrecked an awning in 2014 and how our awning survived with the 'Awning Handyman' storm pole.
