Any chance you could post a couple pics of your tie-down system? I also have the batwing and spend an inordinate amount of time securing it so I can sleep at night. I have been looking for a better, quicker way to deploy and not spend an hour making it bomber.
No photos, but, with the legs extended to the gound, what I use are 3 "S" hooks which I have from old rubber bungees. I hook them over the rivets that go through the ends of each of the 3 rafters, then I put in 3 14" steel stakes directly out from each rafter and then I use a cord that has a 3 or 4 inch loop to hook on each of the 3 "S" hooks. I run the cord down through the stake which is in the ground and then tie a cinch knot (trucker's hitch)to cinch the awning down, pulling it tight against the extended leg.
