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.
This tent pole section arrived promptly. The instructions online were easy to follow. All we had to do was cut it to size and replace the cracked pole, rethreading the elastic with a length of thin wire. Well worth the effort for peace of mind next time we use the tent.
Arrived really quickly, and seems of good quality. It was easy to replace the broken section following youtube videos. Havnt used the repaired pole insitu yet though to check its durability, but it feels sturdy enough so far!
Perfect fit, easy to cut. Tent now functional again
