Okay I did a big oops today I think I was washing and wiping down the awning and pole supports The black know with the screw on the underside that tightens the top awning bar came out. I tried to screw it back in. There was nothing there to screw it into to what am I missing ?

If I remember correctly, there is a track that a nut fits into. It probably just slid out of sight. Go fishing for it.

You may be able to get a finger on it where it probably slid to the bottom. Mine has a slot and I was able to slide it back up with a finger and hold it in place until you can get the screw started. A little bit of a pain, but certainly doable. Good luck!

Yes, there is a floating nut in there. You just need to figure out where it went. This happens all the time so don't worry.

Ive done the same the nut is at the bottom, most likely, once found I used a screw driver to hold it in place while tightening on the outside.

Find the nut and use needle nose pliers. Mine had pain old steel nuts on it and it was a real pain so I bought the normal plastic knobs and what fun it was to find the nut and get the knob started.good luck
