I have hit the skid blocks being 60, i can not pick my hands up above my head for long periods of time, (SWAMBO ) and I use a 3m by 3m by 3m hight bow tent.

Found the best to erect

1) Normal lay out and erect spring steel frame

2) tie the clips from bottom up to how far you can go

3) Now the secret , tip tent on side and clip in rest of clips, and reveres order when breaking down , can some one tells me of the danger of doing it this way ?

4) Above ensure no, walking with sand feet inside during erection, and the tent is made from rip stop and spring steel so it jumps back into orginal position, the outside is wipe with a damp rag to remove any dirt

Ang comment on above method welcomed

Enige dome tent is eintlik maklik.

  1. Maak tent oop op die plek waar hy gaan staan
  2. Druk die kruis pale in mekaar en druk die punte daarvan in op hul plekke by die hoeke van die tent.  (So staan die pale geboog bo oor die tent wat plat le)
  3. Draai nou die pale en trek die middel punt so dat die pale effe buig soos die van 'n waaier.
  4. Staan op die tent lig middel punt op en haak die middel van tent aan die kruis punt.
  5. Begin nou die haakies in haak op al die pale van bo na onder.
  6. Zip die tent deur oop en die lug wat kan ingaan sal help as jy die pale weer regop trek.
  7. Kap hoeke van tent met penne vas.

In wind toestande slaan die tent op met deur in die rigting van die wind.

With a 3x3meter dome you have to be quite tall do achieve this.

No need Errol. After the 4 tips of the poles are placed in position, the 4x poles stand in a bow shape over the flat laying tent.  All you do is push the poles to a side in other words twist the poles to a side and the center cross will automatically come down.  Hook the middle top point to it and start from top down with the smaller  hooks a long each pole. Hook them up all the way the the last one.

Now unzip the tent door and then pull the poles upright in the opposite direction they are laying flat. Lastly pull the tent on each corner to flatten and straighten the inside floor.

Leon I think I've got the idea now. Thanks.

 

So here we are sitting at home because due to extremely cold and wet weather we had to cancel our reservation for this long weekend. I was really looking forward to it because I wanted to try out Leon's 'Easy Method' for small and or old guys of pitching a canvas dome tent. So in order to get rid of the frustration and camp fever I decided to pitch the tent on the patio by trying to follow Leon's instructions and guess what guys it flippen works like a bloody bomb! I am so chuffed that I could actually managed to pitch the tent by myself. smile

Thanks Leon
