Awning Poles

I just finish my awning poles. I used 2 Aluminum painter poles, fabricated the bracket from some scrap steel and painted black to match awning hardware. The 2 1/2" "foot" is non-slip rubber from Ace Hardware.

On these cheap electric awnings that they put on them, there is no support on them. They provide support and you can tie them down, that way your awning does not go flipping up if it gets windy. Here are some photos of mine, also one with them in the stowed position.

Sye gives good Info,also the Poles Support the Awning in the Deployed position so you can place straps to secure the awning without "Bending" the alum arms! Without the poles using "Sun Screens" and other "Hanging Things" is asking for Bent/Damaged awning support arms! Youroo!! PS on "Rainy Days" you will Really find them Beneficial also!
