The awning itself is not bad but there are unclear parts on the user manual. Some of the procedure description is being too details while some are not details enough, but one with some handy experience should be able to install it. The manual said there are 16 screws but the pack only contained 15 and end up I was just directed to use 14. It didn’t say you may cut the liner when it’s too long. It suggests to use a 19mm drill bit but you may just need a smaller bit with the bolts provided. It asks not to cut the safety sleeves on the arm bars but they may not fit if you don’t cut first. Just be aware to hold the arm bar if you really need to cut the safety sleeves first. They WILL swing outward. Overall, I like the awning.
Only reason I did not rate 5 stars was the slight ambiguity of the instructions: when assembling the end piece( no direction re which wsy to slide awning on the outer bar. Did not come with instruction for particular model purchased, mouninting bracket was not preinstall with no direction when in sequence to install
We are so pleased with this awning. Found out it is waterproof too. Perfect to have because we meet people outside because of covid. The installation was relatively easy. We had to put up 2 by 4’s to attach it to as the studs were not able to be used. The crank for putting up and down is very easy. Love love love it.
Great Awning! Easy to install! Great price!

Just installed today and the awning looks great. Not too sure how well it will stand up in any kind of wind. Metal doesn’t seem very strong. Beware….. the instructions are AWEFUL!!!!
Seems to be made well, looks great and was fairly easy to assemble and hang.
As mentioned in other reviews, the instructions are a joke. Product is good - instructions are horrible! You do need two people to install. I'd buy it again now that I know how to put it together!! :)
The instructions (translation of) are terrible and confusing. It looks great and seems sturdy once installed.
Nice awning but poor instructions. . Once up and installed it's great. Installation took 3 hours.

I assembled and installed the 12' awning with a little help from my wife. Would have been easy and saved a lot of time if (1) the instructions were written by someone who actually knows the English language better and/or (2) the assembly diagrams were clearer (see photo). I had to dissassemble a couple of times due to trial and error because instructions were not clear. Otherwise, I would have given 5 star rating. Installed awning as a patio extension over a bar area. Looks good, easy to operate and seems to be pretty stable.
Instructions were not as bad as others have mentioned, but there are a few parts that are a little tricky. Overall took me about three hours to put together. Great value for the money.
