Awning Pics

The rope is a 3/8" nylon rope encased in the awning fabric. The rope extends a couple of feet beyond each end of the fabric with a large knot at each end. To install, a small section of the rope is compressed to slide into the channel with the knot lying outside the channel serving as a handle of sorts. With on person aligning the canopy cord with the channel and the other pulling it along a foot or so at a time it took just a minute to install.
