Sealing minor leaks in the awning

I'm sure there have been some threads on here about sealing/waterproofing these popup awnings. Can someone tell me where to find it? I need to know what to use and how to do it. There are a few pin holes and a little drip at the seam. Nothing major but enough to drip on you. Thanks

I have used a tube of clear tent seam sealer on small pinholes, before. The drips at the seam near the roof are somewhat common, as the rain will seep through the stitching, especially as the awning gets older. I can't give you a solution, if you're wanting to seal the whole surface, but for the pinholes, a tiny dab of seam sealer, let it dry completely.

Gear Aid makes an entire line of canvas repair and seal products. Their Tenacious Tape and Seam Sealer are decent products. They also make a vinyl "glue" that is pretty effective.
