Awning Push Bolt

We have a Dometic awning and I’m trying to locate a push bolt for it. No luck at the local hardware stores, any suggestions.

Sorry to ask , but I've never heard the term " push bolt " any chance you could post a picture ?

And your awning model # might help too.

It is a Dometic, model number 914HX15.001U. Never posted a pic, hope this works.

If you are in a bind, how about a carriage bolt and a nylock nut, using washers / spacers as appropriate to ensure the non threaded part of the bolt stays in place through the end of the awning frame.

Bigger ACE hardware stores, Lowes, HD usually have a section with "odd" fasteners that may have something as well.

Just a thought.

It acts like a nut and secures a bolt holding the awning in place.

tried searching the Dometic site for you, but NO LUCK. Amazon.com has many Doemtis parts, try there.

Those push on washers are common in automotive , take the picture and a measurement of the pin it fits on, to a body shop .
I'll dig around and see if I can come up with the proper name.

Try these. These can be removed without damage. You’ll need the bolt size.

Referred to on the net as an " Internal tooth retainer " .
Having that name may help you in your search.

Wow! Looks like what I need. Don't know how you found it but I appreciate it since my awning is useless at the moment.


I'll update when I receive them, thanks again to all.
