We have a nifty frame that we use for shade in front of our RV; it's a car-port style frame without the heavy tarp covering. Last year we used camo netting, this year I would like to buy a length of Aluminet (or regular shade cloth) to cover it. The cloth would be 20x20 or smaller.
The customer service guy at Outdoor Canopies advised taping the edges and putting brass grommets every foot. This really inflates the price, but if it's necessary I'll do it. It would be faster and much cheaper to buy a raw length of cloth and use clip-on fasteners like these:

But these are plastic! Will they hold up in the wind? Will they rip the cloth? Are they even big enough to use bungee ball-ties on? Should we use something other than bungee ball-ties? Would it be safe to use zip ties?
I have no idea how much abuse this cloth can take or how strong it is. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
