Tesco 6 Person Vis-a-Vis Tent Instructions
Whoever they employed to write the instructions should be shot or go back to kindergarten....how difficult can it be?
Anyway, this tent is relatively easy to put up IF you know how to do it...which the instructions are painfully inadequate. It (un)helpfully uses colour coding on black and white print out and not explaining which way around the longer/shorter poles should be. Actually, once the poles are in, the instructions are ok....but it is a major point and wastes a shtload of time.
There are 2 LONG (well, slightly longer) poles, with a yellow sticker on the end (which comes off after 1 use of the tent). Start on one side of the tent with 2 poles (one longer, one shorter). Slide the long pole into the inner rib (ie towards the middle of the tent), then put in the shorter pole on the outside rib (i.e.the furthest away from the middle). You do need some grunt to force these into place, but at least they go (they won't if you put the wrong pole in the wrong slot). Then do the other side of the tent, longer first (inside), shorter second (outside). Then just pin everything else together like the instructions show.
The tent is ok, just ok, not great, not terrible, although it is pretty terrible in the wind, but what do you expect for 60 quid.
