The old Carefree awnings lock two ways when stowed.

1. The end cap nubs (1 of 4) rest on the awning rail and prevent the tube from unrolling in transit.

2. The awning arms lock to the side of the trailer using a slider that engages the stay brackets when stowed.

I think I have some photos on here somewhere. I will see if I can locate them.

There is a photo in post 4 that shows the end cap nubs and how they engage the awning rail.

Here is a link to the old Carefree instructions that show the slide lock.
