For those with questions about where to keep them when not in use, mine are attached at the top with OC's brackets and then clip into the bottom. The installation was easy and very straight forward. Start to finish (not including the painting) 45 mins.
For me, it's soooo much easier than jumping up everytime the breeze picks up.
I can still deploy the awning without using the poles if I want by leaving them clipped at the bottom.
