    I scored a slimshady awning made by Yakima at the REI garage sale last weekend. The only thing wrong with it is that one of the vertical pole's twist lock mechanism is missing.

    Yakima has the whole pole for $34, which I might buy if I can't replace just the twist lock mechanism. Looks like they're out of stock on this item. If you any ideas, please let me know. I suppose I can take apart a telescopic paint pole and see if that'll work.

    SLIMSHADY LEG, TELESCOPIC

    not sure about the diameter, but maybe a shower curtain rod twist lock might work?

    Oh hey, didn't think about that. Let me go take mine apart right now and study it. The awning pole does hold a bit of vertical weight.
