unscrewed awning gas strut on Salem 36bhbs

Hi folks:
I was trying to find a way to hold down the awning in a bit of wind when in a moment of brilliance I unscrewed the gas strut all the way and it popped off the screw into the awning arm. Does anyone know of an easy way to get the gas strut back on to its screw. I tried pulling it in by myself with no luck.

I can't help with the strut but you need a set of awning hold down poles and brackets

It's raining here, or I'd go look at the ends of mine to know if they have eyelets for a pass-through bolt.... If they do, and your tuff, you can compress it, after removing complete strut, and tie it in the short position..install the rod end first, then the housing...always easier to push upward.
