Thanks Don
Don't make them anymore, but I think I might get some material in FL this winter to make maybe 5 or 10 sets for folks willing to come pick them up.

I used the Aluminum poles that Lowes sell for swimming pool skimmers
They were pre drilled for the top bracket
They are three piece so there is structural integrity
The "Handle" that you would hold for pool skimming is the finished foot for the ground.
They have the grip screw tension knobs and tighten up nicely.
All in all I'm happy with the set up cause they are light weight and have a finished look.
They are Bright Blue and it works for us cause our rug is the same blue and our chairs are same blue.
I'm sure they could be painted with proper prep.
We will see how they hold up.
However, for future down the road,I'm thinking a more permanent application
So, Neil, I will purchase a set of your aluminum poles in the spring if you decide to manufacture them.
We plan on keeping this unit for years to come and I have to think long term

Got all the holes drilled & chamfered, the upper brackets formed. In process of bead blasting the upper brackets. Still have to form the stow brackets, bead blast them , stamp all the upper and lower brackets, fold the instruction sheets, bag all the parts, go to the PO and get some more boxes and start boxing them.

USPS came thru yesterday with all the boxes, got them all folded and the kits in them. Ready to start shipping.

Better get them while you can, will probably be the last batch this year.

During the five days we stayed at Greenbo Lake SP in Kentucky, we had three moderate to severe storms roll through. OC's awning system performed flawlessly.

Glad to hear they worked for you.
