I have this aluminum patio roof and need help with a fastener for one of the posts. During last night the heavy wind broke one of the fasteners and I canít seem to find one anywhere. If anyone knows of something I could reattach it with I would greatly appreciate it.

You could try an awning company. If they have been around awhile they have parts for old alum. window awnings.

Sorry to hear of the wind damage, it was fierce over the weekend here as well.


I believe the top part is called a camelback hinge and the lower part is a post socket.  There are new ones for sale out there but of course finding the right size could be a problem.

Thank you for the leads, I will do some investigating. I know it was installed in 1969 along with storm windows and doors from a long closed company.
