Oh you funny man, no poles coming (EVER AGAIN), so they will NEVER be ready and NOT going to Goshen. So, my friend you are wrong on all 3 things.

I know from time to time, others have given quick "ideas" on how to improve on the poles or how the classy pole is adorned - cap top and bottom held in place with pop rivets.....

Instead of closing the bottom of the poles, I left mine open but use a lego, with the center drilled down, to serve 2 purposes...
#1 - Allows any water to drain out of the bottom of the pole
#2 - The orange color of the lego shows a person where the pole is located. Kind of a safety feature.





A 1" drill bit worked perfect! Pole sets right in the hole with no wobble.

For our Canadian friends...like myself, I found a manufacturer in Canada.
Try Unicanvas.com , they sell on line and ship via Purolator.
I just bought a kit...best gadget I ever bought.

Very similar to what you're selling from the pictures I see here.
The ones I have don't attach to the awning arms like yours though.
I need to put them up and remove every time, put I'm happy with it.
They slide in the groove on the awning tube.
They call it "electric awning support kit"...poles,tie down straps & screw anchors.
