Looks like an awning strap. Tip: if you already have one on your awning some people will install a second one in case the first breaks.

In case of awning motor failure, slide the strap into the awning roller slot, remove the screw from the end of the awning and the inner spring in the roller will allow you to roll up your awning until you can have motor serviced.

This is the correct response for a power awning.
It is used for emergency retraction of a failed motor.

Thanks HERK. I knew you'd have the manual handier than I. I'm not that computer organized.
