Changing Motion Sensor Batteries

If you hear the device beeping intermittently, it indicates that the batteries need replacement.

  1. Find the arrow indicator that points to where the device slides off the base plate.
  2. Using a small FLAT HEAD screwdriver, gently pry open the device to remove the electronics from the housing.
  3. Replace the old batteries with two new AAA batteries.
  4. Put the electronics back into the housing until you hear it click.
  5. Carefully slide the device back into the base plate.

Awning Maintenance & Cleaning


Used for retractable awnings, this high-grade fabric is engineered to combine the highest level of design and performance. Sunbrella fabrics are easy to clean, mildew and fade resistant.

When your Awnings become stained, dirty, or dusty, it is definitely due for a clean up. Using 303 Fabric Guard every 3-5 years gives a longer life span for your awnings so you don’t have to replace fabric. We recommend 303 Fabric Guard.

Why We Use 303 Fabric Guard

Personally Recomended by Sunbrella

The shades that we use are made with Sunbrella fabrics. Sunbrella is known for fabrics that are stain, water, dust, and weather resistant.

Enhances Awnings Performance

303 Fabric guard will get rid of dirt, water and other elements that can destroy the fabric of the awning bringing back water and stain resiliency.

Does Not Change Color

Gives the protection and cleaning you need without altering the color of the fabric.
