Fabric Replacement Instructions For Model 900 and 1000 Only

* Helper Needed*

 
Parts enclosed:
  • Awning fabric and valance
  • (3) rivets
  • (1) cotter pin
  • (1) Allen wrench for the fabric stops.


  • PLEASE NOTE THAT LEFT AND RIGHT REFERENCES ARE AS YOU ARE FACING THE HOUSE.

    First you must determine which replacement procedure fits your awning. Refer to Figure 1 to determine if you have one single slot or 3 slots on the roller end cap on your left spring assembly. If the roller end cap on the left spring assembly has a single slot, go to the section marked Fabric Replacement Procedure-SINGLE SLOT. If the roller end cap on the left spring assembly has three slots, go to the section marked Fabric Replacement Procedure-THREE SLOTS. We have supplied parts for both procedures, you will only use the ones noted in the instruction steps.



    Fabric Replacement Procedure - SINGLE SLOT

    Tools needed:
  • Vicegrip Pliers
  • Small nail punch
  • Hammer
  • 1/4" nut driver or wrench
  • Flat blade screwdriver
  • Step ladder


  • WARNING: Failure to wear safety glasses or to follow the instructions below can result in PERSONAL INJURY!

    PLEASE NOTE THAT LEFT AND RIGHT REFERENCES ARE AS YOU ARE FACING THE HOUSE.

    Step 1. From a ladder, remove the two #8 x 1/2" hex head screws securing the awning fabric to the rail and put them aside.

    Step 2. Roll the awning out by pulling the pull strap.

    Step 3. Slide the lower end of the rafters up until they are automatically locked at the ends of the arms. Lift the awning roller to leave a little sag in the awning fabric and tighten the rafter lock knobs.

    Step 4. Insert the supplied cotter pin in the small hole in the left roller end cap. You may have to rotate the roller to align the holes. The holes are aligned when the hex head bolt is aligned with the hole in the end cap.

    Step 5. On the right side, with a small nail punch and hammer, tap the center stubs of the three spring assembly rivets into the roller.

    Step 6. Remove the rivets from the holes. You may need to pry them up with a flat-head screwdriver to start them.

    Step 7. CAUTION: DO NOT PULL THE SPRING ASSEMBLY ALL THE WAY OUT OF THE ROLLER. Slowly pull the spring assembly out to separate the end cap and the roller four to six inches.

    Step 8. Remove the rivet stubs from the inside of the roller. If you don’t remove these, the awning will rattle when rolling.

    Step 9. Using a helper, slide the old awning fabric and the valance from the roller and awning rail. Retain the plastic spacers located in the awning fabric and valance grooves of the roller bar, for use in reassembly.

    Step 10. On the new fabric, trim the gray cord to a length of 1-3/8" on the left side. This will assist in centering the fabric on the roller. Insert a plastic spacer over the gray cord that was just cut.

    Step 11. With a helper, ensure that the cut edge of the awning hem is facing the ground and slide the new awning fabric into the groove on the roller and slot in the awning rail at the same time. Be careful not to tear the fabric on the edge of the roller bar or awning rail!

    Step 12. On the new valance, trim the gray cord to a length of 1-3/8" on the left side. Insert a plastic spacer over the gray cord that was just cut. Insert the new valance into its respective groove in the roller bar.

    NOTE: WHEN INSERTING THE AWNING FABRIC AND VALANCE INTO THE ROLLER BAR, BE CAREFUL TO ENSURE THAT THE GRAY CORD REMAINS EXTENDED BEYOND THE FABRIC ON THE RIGHT END. CENTER THE AWNING FABRIC AND VALANCE. DO NOT LET THE CORD PULL ALL THE WAY INTO THE FABRIC.

    Step 13. Insert the right spring assembly back into the roller bar and align the rivet holes on the right spring assembly with the holes in the roller bar.

    Step 14. Reattach the spring assembly to the roller bar by inserting the three new rivets and driving the stubs with a hammer until they are flush.

    Step 15. Remove the cotter pin from the left roller end cap.

    Step 16. Make sure that the awning fabric is rolling up straight. Re-install the #8 x 1/2" hex-head screws used to secure the fabric to the awning rail (removed in step 1). Damage to the awning may occur if these screws are not Re-installed.

    Step 17. Test the awning for proper operation.



    Fabric Replacement Procedure - THREE SLOTS

    Tools needed:
  • 1/4" nut driver or wrench
  • Stepladder


  • WARNING: Failure to wear safety glasses or to follow the instructions below can result in PERSONAL INJURY! PLEASE NOTE THAT LEFT AND RIGHT REFERENCES ARE AS YOU ARE FACING THE HOUSE.

    Step 1. From a ladder, remove the two #8 x 1/2" hex head screws securing the awning fabric to the rail and put them aside.

    Step 2. Roll the awning out by pulling the pull strap.

    Step 3. Slide the lower end of the rafters up until they are automatically locked at the ends of the arms. Lift the awning roller to leave a little sag in the awning fabric and tighten the rafter lock knobs.

    Step 4. Insert the supplied cotter pin in the small hole in the left roller end cap. You may have to rotate the roller to align the holes. The holes are aligned when the hex head bolt is aligned with the hole in the end cap.

    Step 5. Using the supplied Allen wrench, loosen the set-screws in the two fabric stops (one in the groove with the fabric, one in the groove with the valance) and remove them from the grooves in the roller bar (see figure 2). Retain the fabric stops for reuse later.



    Step 6. Using a helper, slide the old awning fabric and valance from the roller and awning rail. Retain the plastic spacers located in the awning fabric and valance grooves of the roller bar, for use in reassembly.

    Step 7. On the new fabric, trim the gray cord to a length of 1-3/8" on the right side. This will assist in centering the fabric on the roller. Insert a plastic spacer over the gray cord that was just cut.

    Step 8. With a helper, ensure that the cut edge of the awning hem is facing the ground. Slide the new awning fabric into the groove on the roller and slot in the awning rail at the same time until about 6 inches of the fabric is still extending out of the roller bar. Be careful not to tear the fabric on the edge of the roller bar or awning rail! On the remaining six inches of fabric extending out of the roller, trim the gray cord flush with the edge of the fabric. Slide the fabric the rest of the way onto the roller bar until it stops on the other end. Insert the fabric stop with the flat end toward the gray cord into the same slot until it rests on the edge of the fabric. Tighten the fabric stop set screw with the supplied Allen wrench.

    Step 9. Trim the gray cord on the right end of the valance to a length of 1-3/8". Insert a plastic spacer over the gray cord that was just trimmed. Slide the new valance into the groove on the roller until about 6 inches of the valance is still extending out of the roller bar. Be careful not to tear the fabric on the edge of the roller bar! On the remaining six inches of valance extending out of the roller, trim the gray cord flush with the edge of the fabric. Slide the valance the rest of the way onto the roller bar until it stops on the other end. Insert the fabric stop with the flat end toward the gray cord into the same slot until it rests on the edge of the fabric. Tighten the fabric stop set screw with the supplied Allen wrench. 

    NOTE: WHEN INSERTING THE AWNING FABRIC AND VALANCE INTO THE ROLLER BAR, BE CAREFUL TO ENSURE THAT THE GRAY CORD REMAINS EXTENDED BEYOND THE FABRIC ON THE RIGHT END. CENTER THE AWNING FABRIC AND VALANCE. DO NOT LET THE CORD PULL ALL THE WAY INTO THE FABRIC.

    Step 10. Remove the cotter pin from the left roller end cap.

    Step 11. Make sure that the awning fabric is rolling up straight. Re-install the #8 x 1/2" hex-head screws used to secure the fabric to the awning rail (removed in step 1). Damage to the awning may occur if these screws are not Re-installed.

    Step 12. Test the awning for proper operation.
