Keder size adapter?

Hi all, the awning channel on my Puck L has an internal diameter of around 8-9mm. Itís perfect for my Isabella Shadow canopy which has a Keder strip diameter of 8mm. However, my Kampa Dometic Pop Air awning has a Keder strip diameter of only 6mm. Itís very loose in the awning channel and has the tendency to Ďunzipí itself, even in light winds. I use the Isabella clamps on both ends but it still pops out from the centre towards the ends.
Iíve searched online but canít seems to find any kind of adapter that will convert a 6mm Keder to fit an 8mm rail. Failing that, I may have to buy a suitable length of 8mm Kede strip and get somebody to sew it onto the awning.
I just wonder if anybody has had a similar problem and how you went about solving it?

Hi Mike. I've experienced the same think with my Shadow and my ex Clairval Awning.

What I used to do with the awning is rather than using plugs/clamps on the ends of the awning rail, I used to fit guy ropes at each end of the awning Kedar and peg it to the ground so that the Kedar strip and awning was held in tension which stopped it moving sideways all together.

Don't know if it'd work for you or not.
