Awning Operator

A home owner from arlington heights, il says:
Hello,

Attached in the operator I am looking for. There are no markings on it. It does not seem like there are markings on the actual window either. At least nothing obvious.

Thanks!

I'm afraid we don't have anything with a link arm that short. I would suggest our 39-346 universal type jalousie operator. You will have to either cut down one of the arms that come with the 39-346, or you could drill the arm off of your existing operator and attach it to the new operator. What do you think?

Hello Dave,

Hey! that looks like a terrific idea since this original operator is very hard

Hello Dave,

To follow up, I was able to drill out the rivet that held the old short arm on the old operator. Then attach that short arm to the new operator with the pin and C-clip provided. Works perfectly!!

Thanks for your suggestion and help.
