If you can modify your pole to make it work, you may want to invest in these "ball end mount brackets" for your popup. We installed these on our 2nd pup and they worked great.

Never had a problem with either of our bag awnings. Wall Mounted or ground free-standing. Both worked great! And anchored, of course.
Briorick your right I took off the cap and low and behold there was a ball.
