Texsport Replacement Tent Pole Kit - Model 14105
This product is horrible!
The instructions on this product tell you to feed the shock cord through the eye of the needle on the metal stick used to thread the cord through the tent pole. The stick doesn't have an eye -- and you can't make one because then the stick is too thick to fit through the middle of the tent pole. My husband and I spent over an hour trying to rig up a way to get the stupid cord through tent pole. This kit is worthless. If you need to fix your tent pole -- take my advice -- go buy a new tent!!!

After reading one negative review I was a bit concerned about the ease of this kit/project but my concerns were quickly cast away as texsport has included EVERYTHING for a perfect replacment of the 2 poles I had to replace (2 kits). Instructions are clear although melting end of shock cord, rolling to a point and making a VERY flat hook in wire is needed for a easy pull. I would use this kit again and again if needed.

Just what I needed
Fixed my greenhouse pole that broke over our extreme cold winter. It was nice to be able to cut the poles to the length needed. Fair price and nice to know you have decent shipping even to Alaska!

Texsport® Replacement Tent Pole Kit - Model 14105
I ordered two sets to make a 5 rod pole. Was so easy to put together and it works great. I read the previous posts prior to purchasing and assembling. Would highly recommend it and already have.
