Thule Awning Empty Thule Awning

Post by RalphHughes Mon Oct 09, 2023 11:06 am

I have seen a few comments re a winding attachment for a battery drill to more easily operate the wind out awning
A replacement winding handle comes in at a silly price and you can't just buy the end T piece
I have found a solution if anyone is interested
Usng a standard brass radiator key and a suitably sized aluninium tube you can easily make one
The ends of the cross bar need filing down by about 0.5mm but other that that it's a perfect fit

I have a photo if someone can enlighten me as to how to upload it
Thanks

Where did you get the aluminium tube Ralph?
Great idea.
