1. Using a utility knife, cut
all rope of the double laces around the
2. Cut all lacing rope around
the sides that tie to the edge of the
frame. It is very important that the canvas
be protected at all times while cutting the
lacing rope to avoid damage to the fabric.
Once the cord is all loose, follow
instructions depending on the type of
awnings you have.
Most covers are attached with
aluminum railing at the top and or sides.
The cover needs to be slid out slowly off
the tracks by one side. Canvas track may be
bent on the ends or have screws to prevent
canvas from sliding out.
For carport and freestanding
awnings. Lift up the 4 corners of the cover
over the body of the awning and slowly pull
the cord out of the frame.
5. Once cover is on the floor,
fold and store in a dry place to avoid
mildew from forming (if cover is wet, dry it
before folding to prevent mildew). Also,
make sure the covers are not cut, ripped or
that sharp objects go through the fabric
while folding or while in storage. Always
store on top shelf.
6. Remember, that if in the
removal process high winds are encountered,
the cover may flap and rip away form the
frame as you cut the rope. The amount of
people needed for this job will vary
according to weather and jobsite conditions.
