Doesn't matter, the OldCoot ain't making them anymore from what I heard.

He will be selling all the attaching hardware in a few weeks and all you will need to do is go to Lowes/Home Depot and get some painter telescoping poles or something similar and make your own.

They will store just like OldCoot's did.

If you could give me a list of hardware I'm sure I could find everything myself. I just have no idea as where to start.

OldCoot has the corner on the upper attaching brackets for now anyway.

Start at any boat supply outlet. Get yourself a mounting bracket for each pole:

Bimini Top Fittings - Nylon Outside Eye End pair - Overton's

Bimini Top Fittings - Nylon 90 Deck Mounts pair - Overton's

Then get a couple poles that will fit onto the end piece. You'll want poles that are collapsable or adjustable.
On mine, I used a couple pin latches and painter's extension poles.
I left the poles yellow for visibility and because I'm to lazy to paint them. I also prefer not to leave them permanently mounted. When I deploy the awning, I simply extend the poles to the proper length and attach with the pins. Then I hook my tie down straps to the loop of the pin latch.

That is definitely an alternative, but I prefer stowing them on the awning, I have enough extraneous stuff to stow(or leave behind).

Will you be selling the hardware as a kit with unlimited supply or just what you have in your inventory?

I'm hoping to have at least 30-40 sets available. Took a 4'x4' sheet of alum over to have plasma cut yesterday. Won't know exactly how many sets can be "nested" on that size sheet yet. It is 6061 T6 alum that is used to make NASCAR and other race car seats. Definitely not going into business, as I am retired and it's a hobby to help others save their awnings. These are only sold to the members of the FRF group.
