CUSTOM ADAPTATION PURPOSE: To provide a means for an individual with limited strength to raise and lower awnings on the windows of a home. The western windows of the home were fitted with two-meter wide canvas awnings with steel fittings. The block-and-tackle system for raising and lowering the awnings was created using three-strand nylon anchor rope and stainless steel pulleys, all purchased from a boat shop. The lower pulley is fastened securely to an eyelet mounted on the brick wall of the house. A cleat is bolted to the wall at shoulder height where the end of the rope can be tied. The system enables the user to pull the awnings up and down. TITLE: Help with Awnings. JOURNAL: TAD Journal. REF: Volume 25, Number 2, Winter 2005: P. 9. PAGES: 2 (including cover).
