Pulley/block for awning?
I have read/heard that it might be useful to have a pulley/block on each end of the awning rail. For one-person placement of the awning into the awning rail, the installer could (1) attach a line to a grommet at the end of the awning that first goes into the mounting rail, (2) run the line through the pulley/block on the far end of the rail, (3) run the line back to the near end of the rail, and (3) feed the awning into the rail while pulling on the line.
Has anyone done this? If so, do you have any photos and recommendations as to the hardware?
Thanks for any assistance.
