Aussie Traveller has designed the Anti-Flap Kit (Patented) to help overcome the major problems faced by owners of all brands of roll-out awnings
Our Anti Flap Kits are supplied as a pair and come in 3 sizes (lengths) determined by your awning fabric projection as follows:
Short 2100mm - 2200mm
Medium 2200mm - 2300mm
Long 2300mm - 2400mm
The AFK includes a built-in sail track to accept shade walls and 2 x mounting brackets in each kit.
*For awnings with projections greater than 2400mm, extension brackets are available here.
Took me nearly a month to commission the awning after the fitting done by the friendly people at Clontarf. It simply hasn’t been hot enough.
It’s a bit fussy to assemble the first time but managed to extend the 4.5 x 3 metre awning in the middle of a 15 knot gust with doing any damage. The permanent marker will come out before I put it away. Marking fore and aft as well as inner and outer on all the bits will make it all easier next time.
A word for the unwary. The slider nuts for the extension come apart and it would be dead easy to lose any of the four bits. One we found at the far end of one of the inner struts, and the other was in the bottom of the strut bag. The knurled mobs were east to find. Not so easy was the winding handle which I had filed under the mattress. Lots of bad language followed by apologies to the much maligned techies ensued but all good at the end.
It’s seen one longitudinal 20 knot gust and it certainly works. A light two step ladder is a must for our installation at 3metres. I’ll send a photo under separate cover.
