TOOLS NEEDED:
  • Measuring tape
  • pencil
  • step ladder
  • chalk line
  • 1/8" drill bit
  • Phillips screwdriver
  • PARTS ENCLOSED:
  • Awning Cover
  • Fasteners
  • Mounting Screws
  • Bungee Cords

  • 1. Locate the supplied fasteners and screws used to secure the protective cover to the soffit.

    Note: We recommend installing the fasteners for the protective cover one at a time, beginning with the one to the far right. Once the first is installed, you will use the actual protective cover as the template for the grommet spacing between all the holes.

    2. Make a mark 1" in front of the bracket -- see figure 1.


    3. On the mark, snap a chalk level line along the entire length of the awning. On the chalk line, mark the location of the right end of the awning. Along the chalk line you just made, measure 1" further to the right of the awning end point and make a mark. This is the location of the first fastener on the right for the protective cover -- see figure 2.


    4. Place one fastener on the mark. Orient the fastener so that the hook opening is facing in towards the house --see figure 2.



    5. Using a 1/8" drill bit, drill a hole approximately 1" deep. Secure the fastener with a #8 x 1-1/2" Phillips screw supplied.

    6. Remove the cover from its packaging. Orient the cover so that the sewn hem is facing the house -- see figure 3. Place the first grommet of the protective cover on the first installed fastener.

    7. Extend the cover to the left and keep it taut. Then mark the center of the next grommet hole on the chalk line.


    8. Repeat the previous steps for the remaining fasteners.

    Note: The ends of the protective cover are designed to extend approximately 1-1/2" beyond the overall width of the awning.
