ZipDee Relax and a maintenance tip

I went to Alumapolosa and met up with one of the reps from ZipDee awnings. I ask if there is any maintenance on the motorized awning. Other than keeping it wiped clean he said there is a small hole on the square main support about in the middle of its length. He said to buy an aerosol can of lithium grease with the "straw" and spray some in the hole from time to time. It lubricates the Acme gear that drives the awning.

I wonder how you get at the gear for cleaning?
