Awning Spring

My awning spring trigger is broke! Will roll up and stay up but when I unlock it and let it come down it will not lock? Do I have to get a new assembly or can I fix the trigger?

So you're having problems with the wind out side of the ratchet mechanism.

Have you tried spraying WD-40 in to lube the mechanism. I've had to lube mine twice in the past seven years.

Looks like the ratchet mechanism only comes with the front torsion spring assembly .
But I'll keep looking .
Also there are U Tube videos on the replacement.

I tried posting a link to the u tube video , but couldn't get it to work.

Yes, only comes as an assembly. If yours is older, and Im guessing it is, the new one will be a revised design that wont wear out like yours did.
