Carefree Awning straps

The canvas straps on two of my pulldown awnings have broken. They fit in a slot on the spring loaded pulldown bar. The ends are rivetted on to the bar.

Has anyone changed their straps. Any helpfull hints?

Yup ... there are a few postings (some may have pictures) but, basically, you drill a hole in the slot near the end cap. The hole should be the diameter of the rod that's in the end of the strap. You then angle the drill so that you create a slight groove. Then you can slide the old strap out in your new hole/groove. The hole is at the end of the awning so once the new strap is in it will stay in place.
