SunSetter Side Weather Breaker Panel

Posted on April 26, 2015 at 11:20 PM

At Shade One Awnings we install a side panel with a pulley system to raise and lower the side panel at its highest mounting point on the house. The awning is then set low enough at the front bar so the homeowner can reach up and simply loop the side panel over the supplied hook. The connection on the house deviates from the SunSetter instruction manual and makes removing and adding the side panel much easier. The SunSetter instruction manual requires a ladder to hook the panel at the house connection and at its highest point. A video showing the process and hardware we use can be found on the home page of this website or here... This post is in response to an email I received today. Here is the letter and my response which may answer some of your questions...

I just received my side weather panels and was confounded by the
directions.  My husband said go look it up on the internet.  I found your
video!  WOW! So much easier than the directions. And so much easier to
install the panel when needed!!!! Considering my husband is legally blind,
he would even be able to put up or take down the panels with ease, if I
was not around.  I would like to install my side panels the way you did on
the video.  What kind/size of pulley did you use? The video did note a 4"
anchor tie was used.  Is this a kit that can be purchased through you?  Or
are the parts readily available at the local hardware or box store?



Patricia, Thank you for the feedback on the video I posted for the SunSetter side weather breaker panel.:) We do not sell this in a kit but everything we use is available at any hardware store, big box or mom and pop. The pulley is called a single sheave awning pulley. It comes in rigid or swivel top. This refers to the hole the screw goes through. That screw hole can swivel on top the pully or remain in place. Either will work very well. Any size cleat can be used to tie it off but we think 4" fits the scale of the project well. The carabiner spring clip shown on the video is a 3" but again, any size will work. To tie it all together we use 1/8" awning lacing cord purchased from an awning supplier but any rope or cord will work as long as it goes through the pulley. Figure for 16' of cord. If you have any questions please write back, Thanks, Don

What type of fastener do you use between the pulley and the side of the house (at its highest mounting point on the house) ?

I was surprised you are not more popular because you definitely possess the gift.
