OWNER'S MANUAL WARNING: KEEP ALL FLAME AND HEAT
SOURCES AWAY FROM THIS TENT FABRIC.
This tent meets the flammability require-
ments of CPAI-84. The fabric may burn if left
in continuous contact with any flame source.
The application of any foreign substance to
the tent fabric may render the flame-resis-
tant properties ineffective.
DO NOT...
1. Do not pitch tent near an open flame.
2. Do not leave campfires unattended.
3. Do not allow CHILDREN or ADULTS
to use lighted candles, matches or
other flame sources in or near tents.
4. Do not use heating, lighting or
cooking equipment with open
flames in or near tents.
5. Do not use fuel burning/oxygen

DO...
1. Always extinguish campfire before

4. Always use a hammer/mallet when
driving stakes into the ground. CARE This recreational item is not intended for
use as a permanent structure, as fabric
will quickly degrade if exposed to UV
light. No (sun shelter, screenhouse, tent)
can withstand prolonged exposure to
sunlight. UV damage is not covered under
the limited 90 day warranty.
Structural Integrity
Although our tents and screenhouses are
constructed to rigid specifications, periods
of wind or rain soaking the ground may
loosen the stakes and cause the uprights to
sink into the ground. This will weaken the
rigidity of the overall structure. Water pock-
ets may also form in the roof if the unit is
not assembled taut, the weight of which
may cause broken frames and torn fabric
Storage
Tents/screenhouses must never be rolled
up or packed while damp, as mildew will
form within a few days. Allow tent to dry
completely before rolling and storing.
REPLACEMENT PARTS Always mention the Model number in all correspondence regarding your tent and when ordering
replacement parts. ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS Lay Out the Screenhouse and Poles

I need pitching instructions for a Great Outdoors Apollo 4 man tent


Take out all poles and stakes and tend and seperate.. First lay tent on ground and streatch out where you wish to pitch the tent. Then take stakes and place them in the four corners of tent through the loops so ththat when you hammer in the stakes the tent is nice and stretched out tightly. There should be two more loops on each side int the middle. When the tent is secure to the ground, take the poles that should have been put together and feed them through the hoops of the tent on the sides and top. Leave the top center parts of poles apart until you have poles through rest of loops and attatch them at the top of tent. front, back and center usually work pretty good for order. Doint middle last because it is the highest point. Hope not too confuseing. I camped a month every year for many years. You never forget.

I need assembly instruction for 8 person cabin dome tent with screen house


Clean the ground of any rocks, logs or big sticks. Open the stuff sack and pull out all of the contents. Pull the poles out of their pole bag and set them aside. Remove the tent stakes and set them next to the tent.

  • 2 Lay out the tent poles and assemble them. Push the rod blanks together to make the tent poles that will support the mesh tent body.
  • 3 Unroll the mesh tent over the cleared ground. Take care not to step on or walk on the mesh panels. Avoid sticks and snags, as the mesh rips easier than nylon tent fabric.
  • 4 Clip the Timbertop tent pole clips to the poles. There are no tent pole sleeves because Timbertop uses external pole clips for its mesh tents. Criss-cross the tent poles and push the tent pole tips into the metal holes at the end of the pole clip lines. The mesh tent will now be standing upright.
  • 5 Place one tent stake into the ground and through a pole strap stake hole. Pull the tent out as you insert the stake to keep the mesh panels tight. Stake down each pole strap around the perimeter of the tent. Unzip the doors to enter the tent. Zip up the doors quickly after entry to keep bugs and insects out of the tent.
