Coleman Faulkner is long out of business; you'll need to find a bracket secondhand, from a salvage yard or an RV awning installer that has old parts rom units he's replaced.

Try this guy His number is 541 247-8279- very helpful.

We bought replacement fabric for our Faulkner awning from him a few years ago.

Another possible resource is David Jones in Temple Terrace, FL (813) 956-6827. He probably will not have it, but may have suggestions as to who to contact.

If all else fails, a good welding shop can fabricate one out of steel (stainless?).

I believe the advice ahead of me is your best bet.

However, if that fails, I thought of two potential solutions...

If you have the bit that broke, or even if not, you may be able to go to a welder, who may be able to re-attach that bit, or fabricate a new tab. It is kind of a long shot, and most likely not cheap, but it is a possibility.

The other idea I had was that we live in a modern age. Life can really be different than it was. The technology exists in the form of a 3D printer. There are copiers out there that will make an aluminum part that is an exact copy of the one you have. This is done two basic ways, one is using a build up technology and the other is using a cut away technology usually with electrical or laser pulses.

These 3D printers can use aluminum, so that may be a way to go. I have never tried to have a part like this made, so I cannot guess the price. I can guess it will not be cheap.

Good luck.

I have a mill I can make another one if I have to but it will take me at least 8 hours of milling manually. No one wants to do that... also the aluminium would run about 20 bucks plus all the time maybe a bit or two. I also could buy a some 1/4 inch steel plate and cut the shapes the weld them together. But that will cost about the same and I would need to coat it in something like KG to make it rust proof.

The second phone number, for David was a possible resource, he remembered the bracket shape. If he has one I may be in business.

So I am waiting for either them or someone else to find the bracket. if someone has it I am all ears.
