Chinese manufactured Awnings (Darche Eclipse, 30 Second awn) have fixed mount positions on rear back plate - As a result - they are more difficult to fit and require precise marking and measuring. We would suggest purchasing our removable 'slide' in mounting system for these awning types -
The Slide in System allows the awning to be set up on the bench - Then 'Slid' into position and 4 bolts tightened to secure it. - Essentially the awning is easily removable and is a far safer/simpler install.
SLIDE IN KIT - $60 -
Our Trade Rack kit

All parts on hand can be replaced individually to minimise holding large quantities of variations of our kits on the shelf. Just keep this kit full and you can fit pretty much any pole less awning to any rack!
