The Tent Pole Elastic is 4m long (approx) which will stretch to fit a 7m (approx) pole. Strong purpose made elastic. The Wire Pole Elastic Threader is a length of steel wire with a sharp hook on one end used to re-thread pole elastic.
Usage: Both items are used to help re-string your damaged tent poles back together. The Pole Elastic Threader is a must for all fibreglass elastic pole re-threading simply put the hook through the elastic and feed into the poles. When the elastic is fully threaded tie a knot on the end. (The threader is ideal for hooking the elastics out from the end of poles).
How do I Assemble the New Pole?
Disassemble the current pole assembly as follows:
• Hook the elastic holding pole sections at the end nearest the broken section and pull out so knot can be undone (or if necessary cut off).
• Release the elastic and pull back through pole sections to the broken section taking care to keep the pole sections in the correct order.
• Remove damaged section.
Cut the new section to same length as damaged section using a hacksaw.
Reassemble poles as follows:
• Replace broken section with new section.
• Using a length of wire fixed to the end of the elastic (e.g. using tape) feed the elastic through all the poles in the correct order and re-knot at end.
