Sunsetter Awning Discontinued parts

I apologize if this is not the place to post this. Mods, feel free to move it if that's the case.

I bought a house with a Sunsetter 1000 Awning installed in 2002. The rafter lock knob is missing and I called them to replace it. However, they stopped making parts for this model in 2009. My guess is forced obsolescence.

I've tried to find a source for discontinued parts online, but am coming up short. Does anyone know where I can find parts?

Here's a picture of the knob.

McMaster-Carr, Small parts, Reid supply.

Maybe even MSC (Manhattan Supply Corporation)

It is is most likely just a standard knob with a host of vendors.

If you have another get shaft length and thread type from that, otherwise hit up a hardware store and purchase some bolts to check for length & thread size/pitch.
