You can also pop rivet the alum pad to the end cap that comes on the poles.
OC,

Mine will show up tomorrow. Will my order have the pads? I was thinking about this today trying to do some Google searching but have found nothing.

Oh, I suppose I am in the previous sets. How do we get these pads or do you have a suggestion for us early buyers?

Got my kit today. The workmanship is excellent. Thanks OC. Wish I could have gotten the pads but will improvise. If I can find some aluminum plate I will cut a couple of disks.

Lowes has big fender washers in the special hardware section. They might even have stainless steel ones.

Sorry I didn't think of the pads before now. Only takes about a minute to cut them and I have the alum tread plate.

Do you have an internet picture of that? I need to stop at Home Depot and look at the painter poles that have been mentioned.

Ehh. Our poles went thru an 60+ mph storm, while sitting on the north shore of a large lake last memorial day. Tornado warnings sent us away, but all was well upon our return. I've been amazed at what our 21' awning will hold up Through after tying it down. Ooh, the rest of the story was the awning wasn't deployed in the tornadic storm, but it has been out in 30+mph winds with no problem.
Stay safe.

I received the kit yesterday. I cannot state enough good about OldCoot’s product. The brackets are very well made and made of superb material. OldCoot’s work is exemplary of excellent craftsmanship. I don’t think anyone could find a better product.
OldCoot, thank you so much!
