Taking off the valance
- Bring the awning out a little way (about 1-2ft) so that the end caps on the front profile are visible (the front profile is the metal curved front bar that the main fabric attaches to, which moves forward as awning comes out)
- On each end of this profile bar, there is a plastic cover (covering the whole end of each bar) This cap must be gently but firmly removed (it has 2x lugs that locate into the main bar- they are just pushed in to place- no fixings- but can be quite tight to remove) If they prove troublesome, our fitter would recommend using a small piece of wood against the inside of the cap and a gentle tap with a hammer on the wood. Do this evenly on top and bottom until the cap is removed. Now repeat on the other cap.
- There is a small transport screw holding the valance in place on either side. These must BOTH be removed before removing valance.
- Now gently slide the valance out from the end (the rubber tube is part of the valance) Roll the valance up and store it somewhere dry for the winter.
- Replace both end caps on to awning. When correctly in place, move the awning back in again. Make sure caps are firmly in place as far as they can go on to the bar- as there is not much room between the caps and the awning body when closed. If caps are not pushed on correctly the awning may not close completely or may cause damage to the caps.
We hope you have many enjoyable years under your new awning, but should you have any questions please give the office a call on 01202 741671.
