Can you guess what these are for.?

I made them out of odds and ends on my work bench.

Yes the saddles are different sizes just because that's what I had.

Hint....The far left is one of my tent legs.

You'll have to wait till next weekend for a demo. Out of time.

This idea is untested. But two bottles of Pepsi thought went in to it. :IBCOOL:

As far as the conduit frame coming apart while setting up by yourself I use duct tape and tape all the joints together so they don't fall out. After the first setup I did this and it works great. Eventually I'll get the snap together frame and not worry about it

Well while the wife was away , I got tent # 1 up today.

I used those two sticks with hoops above.

The idea was ,that setting up by myself ,it was awkward to lift the frame and hold a leg to shove in a angle at the same time.

I slid the two hoops on the frame between the 1&2 legs,and the 3&4 legs than lifted the frame with both hands.
The sticks rotated down as I lifted creating to teporary legs. Than it was easy to walk a long and install the legs.
When all legs were installed the sticks were a inch off the ground and easy to remove.

The smaller hoop worked better than the larger ,so I am going to change the large one for a small one.

Once tent one was up I took advantage of our good weather and used some ISSO on the dirt spots. Hosed it down good.

This nice weather is great for working on the tents.

Has anyone added eve sleeves to their tent? I got a used  tent last year and it has a ridge pole sleeve but no corner sleeves. I'd like to extend the frame with all 3 poles instead of just the ridge pole to make it sturdier. I don't wanna just cut holes and risk having it start splitting. I thought about getting some vinyl like wall tentshop.com does for their tents and glue it in the corners so it doesn't tear when I cut slits. Has anyone done this?

I think you could get the job done by adding loops the size of your frame. That way no harm if you don't like it or don't need them.
Kind of like a exterior frame tent.

If I were doing it, I would have webbing loops sew along the eves evenly spaced and slip the frame through the loops. Have to decide how big the loops should be. If you are cutting frame material where you camp you might need 3-4 inch loops. :dunno:

ummm there might be a way to have a adjustable loop ???

Maybe something like a webbing belt, fold in half and sew to the eve, than adjust size with a buckle??????

Well I ordered a set of nesting pipe from four dog to replace the pipe that came with the cylinder stove I bought on here.
The pipe was ok but Ididnt like that the cylinder stove pipe gets bigger at the top.
Made it tough to push through the jack from inside. So I just bought a new set.

Burned off the coating with the weed burner.

And got the idea to cut small notches in each section to show the order they go together. The four dog pipe comes stamped with a number but over time it's hard to see.

Anyone ever use these sleeves.

Thinking of using them on my #2 tent to conserve space.

Don't own a walltent yet but here's an idea we use in one of our pop up blind locations. Cut out the bottom of a 5 gallon paint bucket. Pick a corner where you can fold back the floor. Dig the bucket into ground so just even with ground level. Place lid over bucket fold floor over top. You now have a boys and girls #1 Place to go at night. Absolutely no #2's in the tent!
