All the manual awnings I had, had the pull strap at the middle of the awning. Once you release the turn nobs on each side of awning arms then go to the right side of awning as facing it. Use the awning rod to move the lever at the top down ward. Now you should be able to hook the strap with rod and pull down. Once down you can now extend the awning arms one each side and slide till they lock in place. From there its just a matter of adjusting for height and locking in place with turn nobs. Later RJD
