Sun blocker addition to awning

I hope this is the right place to post - I can't find another one on point....

I want to add a "sunblocker" to the awning - you know, the sun shade that attaches to the roller and hangs down near to the ground - but its not simple!

Every supplier I have contacted says that the blocker just gets threaded into the vacant slot on the awning roller. I have a 2010 International and there is no "empty" slot. It looks like the only way will be to somehow put snaps/grommets or some kind of fastener on the awning.

Does anyone know when they empty slot has gone?

This was my solution,

I installed my ZipDee sunblocker as directed by attaching snaps with rivets to the awning roller, through the awning. No big deal, very easy installation.

If you get the sun blocker from Zip-Dee it will come with snaps / rivets. It's an easy installation. In fact I think it also comes with the proper size drill bit. I was afraid that the snaps on the roller would interefere with the awning rolling up into it's cover but there is no problem there. I got a few extra snaps so I could go the whole length of the roller to give me a little flexibility in positioning the screen. Not sure that was necessary since I've only used it two times. A worthwhile addition for use when it's needed.
