What Ian is refering to there are 4 of and his very good explanation
should suffice without a diagram, sounds like you have one missing.
Or are you refering to the rubber straps with D loops, 3 on each side?
The rubber hooks pass through slots in the over door channels and hook
onto nylon hooks on the inside of the channel thus holding the canvas
against the frame over the door. These nylon hooks are guite often
broken off but are easily replaced.
