The Awning Brackets – AX27™ & DX27™ Tents is made from stainless steel and comes in three parts with stainless steel bolts & nyloc nuts for fitment. The two larger pieces that attach to the side of the tent have been designed with a variety of laser cut holes and slots to be able to accommodate most brands of awning. The corner piece is installed on the corner of the tent where the rear hinge of the awning is located to provide additional strength and support for the awning when in use (see image) and is bolted to the rear section of the awning bracket. The bracket can also be use for standard 180 degree awning, in which case the corner section does not need to be fitted.
SPRING ROD ADAPTER – if the side pieces of the awning bracket are mounted pointing downwards, the spring steel pole for the awning still fits in the tents standard receiver point. But if the side pieces are required to be installed pointing upwards due to the configuration of the vehicle, we recommend also purchasing the Spring Rod Adapter bracket which mounts easily to the corner piece of the awning bracket. This additional bracket ensures that the spring steel rod of the tent does not foul on the awning/awning bag and cause any damage. An alternative to the Spring Rod Adapter is to ben a dog’leg’ into the end of the spring steel to clear the awning. You can view the full video of the Spring Rod Adapter below.
