Cable Guide

Another version of the Gearbox Straight Drop, this awning is fundamentally identical except for Stainless steel wires down each side and using 316 marine grade stainless steel brackets. The wires are used to keep the bottom rail in a safe, stable position when winding the awning up and down and the system can be used just as is. Strapping the system down is however recommended as strong winds can still blow the awning up and down with or without these wires.
