Shade Sail Awning Extension

Using an eight-foot shade sail from Amazon, some spring clamps, some cord, and a couple of tent stakes, I made an extension to our side awning. The shade sail clips to the end of the awning. I stake the other end to the ground.

As you can see in the pictures, we went from no shade to a little shade. It has worked well. It didn’t cost much and it’s great to have a little more shade when we need it.
