ZipDee pull strap repair
All my previous trailer awnings had a removable pull strap that could be slid to the end and removed. When I saw that my current trailer's pull strap was rotted on the end from the sun, I thought it would be a simple replacement.
Instead, I had to come up with a repair because my strap is sewn into the awning fabric.
First is the photo of the rotten strap, followed by the repaired strap made from 1" webbing and riveted on. The "large side" of the rivets rub on the aluminum cover, not on the awning which would otherwise wear.
