mod for using de-flappers on elect. awning

after installing awning posts using OC's brackets, I wanted to use the Camco De-flapper to add some strength to the fabric but on the elect. awnings there's no rail to use the DE-flapper correctly, the photos below will show the mod that I've come up with,

I left the parts unpainted for the photos so they will show up better, now I will paint them black and they will blend in with the other hardware,

1/2" emt, 1/4" bolts/screws, I opened the eye screw up enough to allow the tubing to slide thru

it'll take two post to add the eight photos, so here goes............

A very clever and good idea. Glenn Jurczyk will like yours better than mine.

thanks OC,...... I was working with scrap items I had in my garage and I'm very pleased with how it turned out,
I did find that a 5/16" eye bolt is large enough to fit the 1/2" EMT perfectly and would not require prying open the eye like the 1/4" did,
but the 1/4" is more than strong enough so I won't be changing it,
