That's correct. Only one hole in the canopy for the latch mechanism to go through. There's no way around that one on a RV side-by-side slider canopy. No other fasteners nor holes in the plastic canopy.

I am reluctant to drill holes in my new canopy,
and am 99% persuaded to only glue it on with 3m 5200.
I looked at an RV4 with a side-hinged canopy.
Screws every 4-5" only is what fastened it to the 1/2" tube frame.
