Make a retractable patio canopy

This retractable patio canopy is fairly easy to make and materials and equipment can be sourced locally.


The video below provides step-by-step instructions for installing a retractable patio canopy on a pergola (or carport) to provide your outdoor area with essential shade. While the measurements shown are Imperial, you can easily convert to metric, and although not all the components are available locally, you can substitute with alternatives.







GOOD TO KNOW: For the clips shown in the above video substitute with carabiner clips (buy at Builders).
