How to Assemble the New Pole?
Disassemble the current pole assembly as follows:

• 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.

    Great replacement product

    Posted by Jane Kingston on 31st Jul 2020

    Purchased these to replace 7 split poles on an old Gelert Rocky 2 Tent. Was easy to repair despite having to cut the sections to fit. The pack had everything I needed to do the job. Instruction page was very well written and helpful. Tent is now good as new and I still have spares. Price was reasonable too. Very happy customer. Now to see how long they last.....

    Far better quality than the ones that actually came with my tent. Easy to cut and very easy to thread with the wire thingy.
