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 Ferrule, 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.
Replaced broken pole on Gelert Brook utility tent. Fiddly to get the elastic through the poles - but did the job well
Exactly as required - easy to repair existing damaged poles.
Superb bit of kit. Effectively made my tent usable for a bargain £10. Easy to do. Loads of poles left for future repairs.
Just the right part , very helpful company , my old tent has a new lease on life
