Hope this helps!
In some cases (like my older awnings) the ends of the roller cover the slot for the straps. The easiest thing is to drill a hole, at an angle toward the center of the awning, and near either end. The hole should be the size of the slot. This will allow a slight "tunnel" into the slot so you can slide the new strap in.
