mark0224,the power hook awning tensioner has a part that hooks into the awning tube slot. When positioned correctly, it will turn the awning tube to tighten the fabric.
risibarra2010,I use that with my electric awning with my version of OldCoot's awning poles and it works good. I do not recommend using it on an electric awning without the poles as the arms may bend or the arm lock knobs may not hold. I attach the springs to the ground directly beside the poles(dogs are less likely to get tangled around the strap).
