Repair Marmot shockcord tent poles

How do I replace the internal shock cord in my Marmot Taku tent poles? The cord is knotted just inside the final connecting sleeve rather than at the pole ends, so the connecting sleeve must be pulled out somehow without damaging it or the pole.

SOURCE: Centre pole is failing to hold tent up in any real wind

TRY DRILLING A SMALL HOLE ON THE INNER POLE SLIGHTLY SMALLER THAN THE DIAMETER OF THE SCREW. U WILL WANT TO DRILL SMALL HOELS EVERY FEW INCHES(CM) SO THAT U WILL BE ABLE TO SET THE POLE AT VARIOUS HEIGHTS IN THE FUTURE.

SOURCE: The elastic cord of the tube poles of the rainfly

Those stretchy tent poles are at walmart, real cheap, Buy a couple and you will have a spare. If you want to fix the old one, I would try a couple solvents to loosen the glue, then remove the tip. Goo gone, or one of those to start, then move up to the mineral spirits, then the laquer thinner, If that doesn't do it, Nothing this side of fire will do it. Laq thinner is the strongest solvent available. Be carefull.

SOURCE: square tent with 2 types gazebo poles, varenda, 2 side windows

the 2 longest of the poles go in an x over the center of the tent and the 2 shorter ones go arch to the sides. http://www.wenzelco.com/details.aspx?NavID=412
shows a picture very similar to your tent. If you go to image 2 it shows it with out the fly. now if you got 2 sets of 4 poles, 2 long and 2 short, and one set is all aluminum, then I would go with the aluminum set. It is less likely to collapse in high winds.

Got one pole that the hook on the bottom of the tent won't stick inside the bottom of the pole


Hmmm.. Another photo would've helped. In my experience, though, it has one of three solutions.
  1. There is something (dirt, mud, clay, trash, gum) stuck inside the pole that is preventing the metal hook from going into the bottom of the pole. Try taking a ground stake of a smaller diameter and bottoming it out inside the pole. This will often dislodge FOD.
  2. There's a rubber cap or similar on the end of the pole, or the pole is backwards in the tent. Some of the shock-corded fiberglass poles are not intended to be reversible, and may not have an opening on the problem end. This does not apply to most dome tents, where 2-3 poles in circular arches can be switched, though.
  3. If you simply can't get the hook into place so that the pole can reach it, try to redistribute the tent over that pole. Push more of the end that is the problem through the sleeves on the top of the tent. It'll make the tent look taller, and may seem like it's stretching the tent. What that does is give the pole more wiggle room - on that style pole, sometimes fabric will get hung up on the metal connection sections, preventing an even spread.

Hi I'm ddesperately trying to find instructions for a tent we just bought which is a Cantera 9. Would you be able to provide this for me please?


I have never seen your tent but found these instructions online. Hope they help:

Erection / Pitching

This tent pitches inner first and uses the popular ring and pin method to locate the poles on both the inner and outer and takes two to erect. The poles are all colour coded making it very easy to identify which poles go in which sleeves. The inner uses six poles to hold up, three for the main living area and one each for the bedroom pods. Once all poles are threaded, its advisable that one person gets inside the inner tent and supports the main poles as they are located. Tip here and for most tents of this design, make sure the first pole you locate on the main living area is the pole on the bottom of the crossover at the top of the tent, this then takes the weight of the poles above making it easier to secure. Locate the main poles and then the bedroom pod poles using the ring and pin system. The inner tent will then require pegging down and this takes around twenty pegs to secure. Finally once the inner is secure the outer flysheet is pulled over the inner, tied on the main poles and then finally pegged. The final thing to do is to locate the two porch poles and secure with the ring and pins and then peg out the guy ropes.

Also perhaps this video will give you an idea of what it is supposed to look like when it\'s up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7SyVVIXV7l0

I have a ten year old tent hardly used that has somehow now minus its tent pools can i get replacement ? how ? and How much


Sporting goods stores normally carry generic replacement poles- you want to find pole of the same diameter. These can carefully be cut to size by securing the cord between the first & second pole, cutting the knot at the end of the pole, then sawing off the end of the first pole that does not have the metal coupling. This is easier if you wrap masking tape around the pole at the cut location to help prevent the fiberglass from splitting. Put the cord back through the first pole, tie a couple of figure 8 knots, and you are good to go.

No instructions giving to erect our tent 6 man regatta hyperdome model no 927/5887


I bought one of these yeaterday. The instructions - for what they are worth are sewn inside the carry bag. So I decided to put it up today. Not as easy as i would have thought, but then this is my first tent of this size. ( saw a nice Outwell Montana 4 in Millets for 225.00 which would have been my tent of choice). But at half price in Argos I couldn't argue that one.


So to put it up.....
lay out the fly sheet in the approximate final position. put poles in as per instructions ..blue to back red to middle and blue to front.. across the tent. ( the pole guides are all colour coded.) Make sure poles are in pins at the base of fly sheet (bending gently to attach). these are attached by the black elastic straps.put in porch pole, put in front to back poles left and right.

Anchor back of tent temporarily with pegs. Lift from porch forward to lift tent. Temporarily peg base of poles, straighten out so that the straps inside tent are approximately perpendicular to each other. Move poles to tension flysheet and tighten anchor points on flysheet using straps buckles to pull flysheet down as far as possible ( to help prevent draughts)., anchor guy lines when happy with final position.

Put up inside ground sheet and attach to points on inside of flysheet. put up rooms starting with the rear yellow hook and work around to front red hook.

These instructions were not specifically provided but this was our first try and probably could be improved on. It requires 2 people for speed if nothing else.

Enjoy

Need replacement poles for a Kelty Gunnison 2.1


If you are in Japan it might be a bit more complicated, but your first step is to email Kelty at warranty@kelty.com and explain what happened. They may send you anew pole, or tell you where to get one, or sell you one.

22 knot winds are nothing special, and most camping equipment should be just fine in those conditions.
