The Dometic Limpet Suction Awning Drive-Away Kit is a heavy-duty sucker connection system designed for attaching a drive-away awning to the roof of a van. This drive away kit can be used with VW T4, T5 or T6 vans without an awning rail fitted... however, for a 100% secure connection we would always recommend fitting a rail.
To Connect: 1. Attach the Limpets through the pre-cut holes of the Kador Connecting Strip and fasten to a flat surface on the van roof by turning clockwise while applying downward pressure. 2. Join the Kador Connecting Strip to the Awning Kador by sliding the 3 x lengths of Figure of 8 Awning Channel between.
To Detach: Loosen off front webbing straps/guylines of the awning, slide out the Figure of 8 joining strips, turn the Limpets a few turns anticlockwise and remove.
The Kador Connection Strip and one length of Figure of 8 Awning Channel can be easily cut to the exact length of your awning if required.
- Basic awning connection method
- Can be used to connect a drive-away awning without fitting an awning rail
Pack Size: 104cm x 5cm x 5cm
Contents: 1 x 3m length of 15cm wide Kador Connection Strip, 6 x Limpet Suction Pads and 3 x 1m lengths of Figure of 8 Awning Channel
*Please note: each Limpet Suction Pad needs at least 5cm of flat roof surface to attach properly – although they will secure tightly to the main roof area (between the gully's) of a VW T4, T5 or T6 there is not enough flat surface on the curved outer edge of the roof (the corner part after the roof gully) to secure the pads. We do not recommend using this kit for vans with elevating roofs or roof bars.
** We do not recommend using this kit with a sun canopy type awning as there is too much tension on the fabric to stay attached.
