The Tent Pole Elastic is 4m long (approx) which will stretch to fit a 7m (approx) pole. Strong purpose made elastic.
Usage: To help re-string your damaged tent poles back together. We recommend using a pole threader when using new elastics.
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 junior 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.
This is my second purchase and was bought as a spare to keep in the tent bag so I have it at hand if needed. It is easy to thread the elastic through the pole sections using the pole threading tool (would be tricky without this). The elastic is thicker and looks more robust than the original supplied with the tent that broke. Very pleased to have mended the pole so the tent is usable again.
