Girard Adjustment


Recommended Posts

The Girard patio awning just 'tips the corner of the door when it retracts with door fully open.  I followed instructions from the manual (Screen shot below) but no change.  I loosened both 3/4" nut& bolt as shown, then tightened the 3/8" adjustment bolt at least two turns but there was no difference.    Then I tried to lower the rear to give more front to back pitch.  Loosened both the 3/4" then backed off on the 3/8" adjustment bolt.  After about a half turn the bolt could be turned by fingers.  Looks like something is stuck. 

Sprayed a little oil in both front and rear assemblies and tried a few minutes later... same thing.

Am I missing something?  Has anyone raised (or lowered) their Girard adjustments?

OOPS!  Wrong bolt.  The 3/8" bolt adjustment is for the awning fitting into the shroud.

It's the 3/4" bolt which adjusts the pitch angle from the 20 degree default.   🙂
