    The splined ends have broken away from the end caps on our retractable cover. Does anyone have a fix for this as I have already tried unsuccessfully to repair by melting the broken bits to the caps using a soldering iron. There's one on Ebay but it's collection only.

    Epoxy resin (slow set) and strips of packing tape or wire embedded in it are my usual way of strapping split plastic back together. Would that work?
