Awning Restraint for Recreational Vehicles Invented by InventHelp Client (PTL-619)

Share Article

Based in Pittsburgh, InventHelp is attempting to submit the Clamp It to appropriate companies for their consideration and possible feedback.

Have you ever had a problem securing the awning arm on a recreational vehicle (RV) in place? If so, you can now benefit from the creativity of two inventors from Camas, Wash., who have found a solution to that problem.

They developed a prototype for Clamp It to keep a stowed RV awning securely locked in place. As such, it eliminates the possibility that the awning arm on the RV would unlock while the vehicle is in motion. It, therefore, preserves and protects the RV awning against damage in transit. Besides that, it is cost effective since it eliminates the need to repair or replace a damaged or lost RV awning. At the same time it prevents an opened awning from posing a serious safety hazard to other motorists sharing the highway. It does so by fitting snugly around the outside of the awning arm to avert having the arm break loose and unexpectedly release the awning. It is also convenient, lightweight yet sturdy, affordable and easy to install and operate.

The inventors' personal experience inspired the idea. "We invented this device because we own a recreational vehicle," one of them said, "and wanted to ensure that the awning arm would remain securely in place while we were traveling."

The original design was submitted to the Portland office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
