Usage: Ideal as an emergency repair kit or to build a complete new pole. All replacement poles are supplied at 68.5cm long so you may need to cut them to size with a junior hacksaw. To find the diameter of your pole you will need to measure the diameter of the end of your pole that does not have the ferrule attached.
Material: Fibreglass Pole Sections
Length: Each Pole Section: 68.5cm (including ferrule)
Quantity: 5 Pole Sections, 1 Elastic, 1 Pole Threader
How to 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.
Parcel came on time and in good condition. Took our tent down after our stormy holiday and all are still in good condition
Excellent service...quick delivery and some very helpful advice when I phoned to discuss what I needed. Wil be ordering from Tent Spares again!!!
Worked a treat
This kit was very easy to use. I had to cut the poles to length, easy to do with a junior hacksaw. The kit comes with a new bungee cord and a very useful cord threading wire. A cheaper and more environmental way than throwing your tent away. Just make sure you order the correct diameter pole that you need. This is a good value and well made product.
Product delivered as specified and match poles for Eurohike Buckingham 6 tent
Great repair kit, pole sections easy to cut & the included threader made it easy to extract the old connecting elastic to replace the old split poles. Can be a bit fiddly trying to keep tension of the elastic but once you get the hang of it it's fine. End result is worth the effort & your tent poles are like new again.
I have not yet used or indeed assembled the poles into my existing pole runs however they look and feel identical to the poles to my Eurohike Buckingham Elite 6 except that they are approx 10mm longer. The instuctions advise cutting to length with a junior hacksaw and I'm sure this will be fine. I am confident they will do a good job but if not. as McArthur said , 'I will be back' with an updated review.
