I have been reading other forums and noticed alot of people recommending the rivets below with good reviews. I will order some and find out.

Dometic 3/16" x 1" Awning Oscar Rivet 10 Pack Bagged - Awning Parts & Accessories - Hardware
Look like they should work,,, maybe you could find them @ your local Home Improvement store ???
Planning to check our awning out today,,, last time we used it , it made a loud clunk when we brought it in,,, thinking I may lube it with some White Lithium ???

Hey AGTORG, I haven't had time to repair mine yet...but the rivet idea seems like a perfect way to fix that! That's what I'm going with when I get the time!
