I meant to call Zip Dee today but let time get away from me.
I will call them next week. In the meantime I am hoping one of you all might have an idea.

There are 2 snaps on each side of the awning equally spaced top to bottom. Female snaps. I do not think there are any male snaps for them to mate with.Could be but I cannot go look til next week. I don't recall seeing any.

Now why would a tensioned pull down window awning need such snaps?
I am not sure that snaps would hold against the strong pull of the spring tension anyway. The awning when extended attaches to a hook below the window with a loop made of the blue-fancy awning material.

This does not seem to be the same as the snap on awning fabric window covers that are mentioned above and elsewhere in these forums.
