Scienic Porch Awning

On my scienic awning one of the section in the pole has broken.

 

They supply you with some spare sections.

 

Is it a question of just undoing (or cutting, as the knot is very tight)the knot at the end, unthreading it until I get to the broken section, then replace it and re-thread the string and tie another knot in it?

 

Or has someone got an easy method of doing it.

 

Many thanks

Hi,

I had the same problem; it was one of the small sections of which there is no spare.

I took off the glue, untied the knot and took off the section.

I repaired it with araldite and elephant tape. I put the other sections on the elastic by stretching the elastic in the remaining sections each time putting the elastic near the end of the section in a vice, this gave a longer piece of elastic that was not in tension to thread the next section on. A bit fiddly but does work. I put the broken section at the end where there curve is not as sharp.

Hope this make sense and helps.
