Awning fabric retaining screws

I need to get 4 awning fabric retaining screws, the type that slide into the groove where the awning edge slips in on a roll-out awning. I have Googled and Yahooed but can't find a supplier. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

On my 5 RVs and numerous repairs for friends, I've never seen anything that comes close to that particular retainer.

What type of coach and awning brand ; power or manual; are you working on .

Thanks for reply. I need fabric retainer screws or stops for a roll-out awning on a cottage. After extensive Googling, I found more discussions of awnings on RV sites than other sites. Are there other devices that would fit in an awning channel and act as stops?

Most RV awnings I've seen , have a rubber expansion cord through the fabric roll and the installer leaves about 2" of the rubber out past the fabric , then runs a tiny screw through the rubber and channel to stop any movement.
That's on the RV end wall mount , on the roller tube , the fabric and rubber are friction fit, I've had mine move slightly in the wind and had to re-square the fabric to retract the awning.
My guess is they don't want holes allowing water into the tube , rust the spring and add weight.


The part you're after looks like a good idea, sorry I can't help you find any , could you re-post if you do find a supplier. Thanks.

Measure the dia. of that "screw" and match it to an Allen socket screw, which also has no head. It will be hard enough to cut its own threads into the aluminum C channel.(will hold the same as that knurl)
Most RV's though just run a sheet-metal screw through the C-channel and the very end of the awning welt on one end. If both ends are fastened tight, the awning material cannot expand/contract at the welt.
