A long heavy cotter pin, I think 1/8 inch does it. That hole will go all the way through so you may have to unroll the awning a short way to get the hole in the spring shaft lined up. After that, it goes easy.
Hmmm The hole in the end cap seems awfully tiny for a 1/8" cotter pin - I'll take another look tonite but all I could get in there before was a small brad, and then it had to be short as the arm interfered with putting it straight in. The awning is all the way out now..
