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.

I need instructions for 89034 17x15 moab


Instructions
  1. Select a flat camping area and clean the area of sticks and rocks. Remove the tent from the bag and spread out the tent body with the floor on the ground. Assemble the tent poles by connecting the attached sections at the ferrules. Set the poles on the ground and separate by size.
  2. Locate the three long sleeves on the tent body. One sleeve is horizontal over the screen room and the other two cross the main tent body to create an "X". Locate the three long poles and slide one through each sleeve. Place the corresponding pins in the end of the poles. The poles will flex and erect the tent body. This step is best attempted with two or more people.
  3. Attach the clips to the exposed sections of the tent poles. The clips are attached to the ten fabric and will add rigidity to the tent. Locate the next largest pole and insert it through the sleeve on the screen house. Locate the metal grommets where the screen room meets the main tent and place each end of the pole in a grommet.
  4. Locate the two smallest poles. These are for the side rooms. Insert one pole through each of the side room sleeves. Attach the ferrule of one steel pole to each end of the side room pole. Insert the corresponding pins in the end of the upright poles to support the side rooms.
  5. Pull on each end of the tent to ensure the floor is tight. Use a rock to pound stakes through the ground loops on the tent. Place the floor mat in front of the screen room door and use stakes to secure the mat to the ground.
  6. Place the fly on the tent and make adjustments until the shape of the fly matches the tent. The fly will only cover the top of the screen room and the entire body of the main tent. Locate the D-rings on the base of the tent and attach the fly hooks to the closest rings. This will tighten the fly to the tent body.
  7. Locate the guy ropes on the fly. Pull the ropes to the ground at an angle and pound stakes through the loops to anchor the tent to the ground.

How do I assembly the tent


Step 1 Remove the tent, poles, stakes and tent rope of the dome tent from the Northwest Territory sack. Locate a large flat area and remove any sticks and rocks from the ground. Step 2 Lay the tent fabric on the ground with the bathtub style floor face down. Pull the corners of the fabric tight and rotate the tent so the door is facing in the direction you want. Use a hammer to stake the corners in the ground. Step 3 Assemble the two long poles to their full length. The pole segments are connected by chords and will easily snap into place. Slide one pole through the diagonal sleeve on the top of the tent. Slide the other pole through the other diagonal sleeve to form an "X" with the poles. Step 4 Place the end of each pole in the corresponding grommet. The poles will bend and the shelter will be erected. Step 5 Assemble the two small poles. Slide one pole in the doorway sleeve and the other in the back window sleeve. The poles will bend slightly to create a rain peak on the door and window. Step 6 Pull the doormat tight and pound stakes through the loops on each corner. Pull the tent rope tight on the back of the tent and pound a stake through the rope loop to anchor the tent to the ground.

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.

What is the stretchy cord holding your tent poles together called, and where can you purchase some?


Slang term is bungie cords, but its just better and cheaper to buy new poles than deal with a pain in the @#$!

Assemble all the poles, thread poles through sleeves, connect one end of the poles to the tent, stand up one by one! North face and sierra design tents are tricky at first but get easier the more times you do it!

Can I download a user manual for Tadpole 23 tent?


I wasn't able to find a manual, but after looking at the website, the tent looks fairly easy to set up.

Lay the tent out flat and peg down four corners. Then take the longest two poles and put them diagonally through the tent sleeves. Then, put the third pole (for the doorway) through it's sleeves.

Next, you'll have to put the pole point into the hole at either end. Then, go to the other end and bend the pole until you can get the other end in the corresponding hole. Do this for the other diagonal and the tent should be standing. The last one is the door pole

Last, lay the rain cover over the tent. There should be some hooks to strap the hood down near the poles. Don't worry about any strings, etc. Those are for high winds and almost never needed. Good luck

Instruction to put up a Coleman Rock Springs 4 Tent please?


Wow, thats a monster tent. I'll get you most of the way there, but I may miss a thing or two

Lay it down, stretch it out and peg it. That will save you a ton of time.

Next, find the four longest poles. These are the supports. Two on each side of the door, crossing diagonally to the rear. Put one end of the poles in the holes and bend until you can get the other end in. These poles should slide through sleeves in the tent. Once these are up, the rest are "extras." The tent has hooks to hold the poles to the tent.

You have two poles of equal lengths for the side windows. Again, route them thru a sleeve, bending them into the holes on either side of the windows. I can't tell, but it looks like you have a pole system for the front door too. Somehow these poles go next to the main support poles and meet up under the rain cover.

Next, lay the rain cover on top of the tent. It should connect by bungies to the bottom of the pole support holes. There might be a pole or two under the rain cover, but above the tent for support. If so. look for a small pouch that a pole could slide into on the bottom side of the rain cover. You'll run the pole from the pouch to another pouch (all under the rain cover).

Don't worry about strings or extra poles. These are for high wind. Pegging the tent down is good enough.

Good luck
