Broken tent pole

I am looking for a tent pole for the 360 degrees 2 man lightweight hiking tent (the longer of the two) as mine broke while assembling the tent. Does anyone know who the suppliers are or how I could obtain a new pole without having to replace the whole tent? Thanks!

perhaps ask the store where you purchased?

if not getting a new pole out of them, you can buy a repair kit:

I'd give a call to a few outdoors stores, especially smaller ones. I cannot place where exactly, but i remember a few stores having a pot full of mismatched poles in a corner...

you won't get an exact original that way, but maybe something cheap to help out.
Plus it probably is the Nr1 tent accident overall, so im sure some can propose solutions.

Hi There,

Come pop into CityROCK (Cape Town) and lets see if we can make a plan for you!

We have some spare poles that might do the trick.

Kind Regards,

Not sure if they have on hand, but we can always send them up to our JHB branch once we have identified the length and diameter needed.
