If its a Bradcot, there should be some attachments which the hook end of the poles go into. They are like a simple rectangle of plastic with an eye protruding from the front face, they slide on to the awning next to the van, about 2 inches lower than the awning rail, and press up against the van sides, held in place on the awning by a small lock mechanism, and by the tension of the awning.

Rod,

 

As Brecon says Bradcot awnings have pads that the awning poles hook into. These pads slide onto an inner awning tape that is permanently attached to the inside of the awning. Once you have threaded the awning around the channel, go inside and if you have these plastic eyes, slide them onto the inner tape, you'll need one in the middle and one on each end just above the side windows of the canvas. The pads should have two small plastic eyes screwed into the fitting and once the pad is in the correct place, lock them onto the tape by tightening the small eyes, the will help to stop the tensioning poles from slipping.

Am I right in saying that your van has some metal eyes screwed on to the side of the van - these are probably not suitable for the Bradcot, they could be in the righr place but if you can find the proper pads use them.

The Bradcot awning we had, had rubber 'flaps' for the hooks to fit into. These were stuck onto the awning in the correct point. The flaps are readily available at most 'can accessory shops.

Now if anyone wants a full set of Fibreglass poles for a Bradcott awning, contact me. They were not in the van when it was stolen. The awning was!!!!!!

Rod,

 

I'm sure if you wrote to Bradcote they would be able to help. I don't suppose they would bother because it was a 'trade'
