The double security lock ensures extra safety when the vehicle is moving. Once the awning is closed, the front frame is bolted by the patented locks at both ends of the awning. The locks are automatically unbolted when the awning is opened using the telescopic handle. The Thule|Omnistor 5003, 8000, 6002, and 6900 have this double security lock, whilst the Thule|Omnistor 2000 is fitted with manual locks.

The combination of the utmost sturdy spring arms and the monoblock makes the Thule|Omnistor awnings extremely stable. Normal upward and downward movements are absorbed to protect the vehicle panel (no extra pressure). The double steel cables in the retractable arms ensure that the Thule|Omnistor awning is resistant to wind and also guarantee maximum fabric tension.

The telescopic support legs are very easy to unfold. They are lowered vertically from the front frame and stand automatically in the correct position to be set at the right height using the Quick Lock system. This means that the support legs never come too close to the vehicle panel. The dual-purpose facility ensures that the awning can be set up on any base. This is done either by securing it with ground pegs in a natural base or using the special holders which can be assembled on the panel.

Absolutely simple! You open or close your awning in no time at all using the telescopic handle. The handle is standard for all awnings with spring arms and is available in two different lengths, 102 to 155cm or 130 to 190cm (depending on the type of awning)

The height of the support legs can easily be set or adjusted using the patented Quick Lock system. All Thule|Omnistor awnings have this innovative and extremely user-friendly system
