I took a dremel and cut the rivet on one end. After replacing the strap I put a sheet metal screw back in place of the rivet

My 3 A & E window awnings have one end cap with a slit the strap just slides out.

Or you can use a conical shaped Dremel High Speed router bit and routed out or a drill the slot for a distance of about 2 1/2 inches near one end. Routed it out to a width just wide enough that you are able to coax the old straps out and the new ones in.
