Broken Tent Pole? Fibreglass tent poles are designed to be repairable - due to the nature of the constructions in extreme weather it's not unusual for one to split. Ideally .... you should carry a spare but if not don't worry replacement poles can be purchased in sections or a whole kit.... Simply measure the dimensions of the split pole - diameter and length. Once you have our section - split the pole into sections by untying the center elastic - retain the tension - replace the broken section and replace in the same order. Replacement fibreglass pole sections can be easily cut to size. Replacement pole kits come with full instructions ... we are able to offer a full repair service email us with your details and we'll get back to you. Unusual size or steel pole .... EMAIL US we have an array of spare poles from previous seasons!

Please remember to always follow the manufacturers instructions both on the equipment you are repairing and the repair product you are using!
