Awning Lock

I have an A&E awning and I can't get the lock to budge. Fortunately the awning is in the up position and I'm not sure what I might do to unlock it before I call a tech. Taking a hammer to it seems a bit extreme.

locked

Get up on a ladder and grab the end of the roller where the lock is and turn it by hand a little to release the pressure on the lock. Then flip the lever while up there. It has worked for me a couple of times.

And while you can get to it, lube it up really good - first with WD40, then some 20 or 30 wt lube - also a good time to lube where the shaft enters each end of the roller tube...
