Are you talking about the gaps around the fly? Or the actual tent? There is a reason the flys do not go all the way to the ground, if they did they could wick moisture off the ground and leave you wet and cold!!

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 tent fabric may render the flame-resis-
tant properties ineffective.

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.

DO...
1. Always extinguish campfire before

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

Tip

HOW DO I PUT UP A TENT


Don't panic if you've never pitched a tent before. It seems scary when you first get started but with a bit of practice you will be doing it within minutes.
The most important thing is to practice putting it up before you go on your camping trip. There's nothing worse than the sun setting and no light left around you as you struggle to pitch your tent.
Here are my tips to help you get started: Make sure the area where you want to put your tent is clear, without any rocks or big bumps underneath, otherwise you won't be comfortable.
Don't pitch your tent on a low lying ground. If it rains - your tent site will be flooded.
To protect your tent you should lay a groundsheet down as tents can be damaged by punctures and moisture. Now take out the poles and insert them into the proper sleeves of the tent. The instruction manuals are usually pretty straight forward and helpful. Place both ends of the pole in the metal rings and the poles with flex as the tent begins to take shape. Straighten the tent by pulling the material straight and making sure the poles are stretched taut to the outer point. Now secure the tent into the stakes at the corners. Make sure they are really firmly in the ground so they can resist wind and being knocked into.

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.

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.

Hillary ten person family tent


Step 1 Choose a spot to set up your tent. Look for level ground that's free of large rocks or other debris. Make sure you're safely away from your campfire. If it's possible, pitch your tent away from your kitchen area as not to bring animals too close should they be attracted by the smell of food. Once you've chosen a spot, clear the ground of small rocks and sticks to give you a comfortable floor to sleep on. Step 2 Unroll your tent. Put the rainfly and poles aside. Open the tent body so it lays flat on the site you chose. Orient the door so it faces in an accessible direction. Step 3 Take out the tent poles. A basic Hillary tent will use two long poles for the tent body and one short pole of the rainfly. Assemble the two long poles and thread them through the pole guides on the tent body, attaching them to the holes in each tent corner to raise the tent. Step 4 Open the rainfly. Assemble the shorter pole and guide it through the top of the rainfly. Place the rainfly on top of the tent and secure it to the bottom of the tent body with the attached hooks. Step 5 Stake down your tent. You don't want to be surprised by a storm in the middle of the night or while you're away from camp. Stake your tent even if the weather is clear when your arrive. Use a stake at least in each corner of the tent. Find a rock to hammer them firmly into the ground.

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

You can do this. Another possibility is to have an upholsterer look at it, or even a sailmaker, if you have one close.
