Texsport Tent Pole Replacement Kit
Waste of time and money
I am pretty handy and can fix just about anything short of a nuclear reactor. I must me missing something. The instructions state to tape the cord to the supplied wire. The cord and the wire alone are just about the same diameter as the hole. If I use a small piece of tape it is not strong enough to hold to the wire. If I use a bigger piece of tape it is too big to fit through the hole. I tried a piece of shrink wrap and it pulled out too and now stuck in the middle of one of the poles.
I can't return because I cut one of the pole sections.What a waste of time and money. I guess I am going to throw away my tent and new poles and just go buy a new tent. I guess I am a victim of our disposable society. $15 and an afternoon wasted.

replacement tent poles
Worked fine, was able to repair two of my broken poles with the kit. Just remember to score the fiberglass poles before trying to cut and either an extra pair of hands or a good clamp is necessary to string the elastic line.

Pop-Up Blind Repair
I have a doghouse deer blind that last years blizzards busted the poles up. The replacement ones Ameristep sells are actually 4 inches shorter then what comes with blind. These make the roof loose and baggy. I bought these and cut and measured to fit and now my blind is back in shape. My godson just shot his 3rd buck out of it just this past weekend. Worth the money to get a custom fit.
