A replacement pole elastic which is 4m long (approx) and will stretch to roughly 7m. This strong purpose made elastic has a thickness of 2.5mm and is best used with between 6mm and 8.5mm diameter fibreglass/durawrap poles.
Usage: To help re-string your damaged tent poles back together. We recommend using a pole threader when using new elastics.
Length: 4m (stretching to 7m)
Quantity: Sold Individually
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.
No problems but it would have been useful to have the information in your ‘description’ herewith, at the time of ordering.
