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: I have a coleman Weathermaster

I have the same model number tent and have some broken connectors as well. I could not find any replacement parts any where local or online. I called Coleman's customer service number at 800-835-3278. The tent has been discontined but they had a few of the connectors "in the office" and shipped me three. Give them a call; they were extremely helpful. Coleman customer service is top notch in my book!

Hi Mark

This tent is a nightmare to get up, the poles are constantly splitting and you will need a football team if its windy. That said, the actual quality of the tent is brilliant if you can get it up in one piece. Email me if you pick this up.

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.

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.

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.

    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

    How to put up a coleman tucana tent


    Wow. They put more and more stuff on tents. I'll give it a try based on a photo I found.

    First, peg the four corners down. This will help it from moving around.

    Find the two longest poles. These are your main supports and once you get them in, you can use the tent without the fancy rain cover (if you want to). They should run diagonally from the corner's you pegged. Start at one corner and slide the poles through the sleeves in the top of the tent towards the opposite corner.

    The next two longest go from back to front. They do not cross diagonally. Slide these into their sleeves.

    Now the hardest part. Slide a pole into a peg hole or a pin (if your poles have holes in the bottom), then bend the pole and attach it to it's corresponding corner. Just let the bent poles lay on the ground. Do the same with the others. It shouldn't matter which poles go up first, but I would do the diagonals myself, then the side supports. Once these 4 poles are up, you're in business.

    To attach the monster rain cover flip the whole thing over the top and figure out which side goes to the door. It looks like the lantern is on the right front.

    It looks like you should have two poles left. One may be the same size as the side support poles, or very close to it. This is the front door pole. The smallest pole is the side roof support.

    Slide the front door sleeve through it's sleeve, then attach it to the pins or holes where the diagonally support poles are. They should have two pins in this spot, one for ea pole. Next, slide the side support pole side to side under the roof, but over the tent. It should have little pockets to put the pole into. Last, you'll have to bungie the hooks to the little rings at each corner of the rain cover. Forget all the strings, unless you want to stake them out to stretch your tent a little. Hope this helped.

    No instructions on how to set up 3-bedroom Coleman tent.


    First, I would try Coleman.com and see if they can send you a manual or direct you on their website.

    Assuming the picture is the tent I can help (and even if it isn't, these are basic setup steps). Peg the tent down. Lay it out and pick about six spots to peg it down.

    Next, get the two or three longest poles. These are the support poles. Run them diagonally or maybe side to side through the pole sleeves on the top of the tent. Once all the way through, put one end in the hole (or possibly in the pin) depending on if you poles have points or holes in the end. You'll then bend the pole, raising a portion of the tent to make the other end of the pole fit. Look for hooks to hold the tent poles to the poles. Do the same for the other pole/s. And it doesn't matter which pole goes together first.

    Once you have the two or three longest ones in, the rest is extra. From the looks of it, you may have one pole running from the door area to the rear. If there is one, it's usually slid into a pouch and tied with a plastic string at the top of the tent to the other poles.

    Other poles, if they are there are for side support or rain cover support.

    Figure out which way the rain cover goes, then attach the bungie to the pole at the base of the pole. It should have some type of hook. Once the cover is on, it may take a pole underneath it. If so, there will be a small pocket or pouch for the pole.

    Don't worry about the strings and extra stuff. (Unless you're expecting monster winds). You should have extra pegs, strings and maybe a pole or two. As long as you get the main two or three support poles up, you're solid. Good luck
