You are here: Pop Up Tent News Latest How to Fold A Pop Up Tent How to Fold A Pop Up TentTaking down a pop up tent is not the easiest thing in the world but once you get the hang of it you will have it back in the bag in minutes. If you have bought a new pop up tent we recommend that you have a test run at home before you leave for the great outdoors. 1) Take everything out of the tent and give it a sweep out. As with any tent be sure to let the tent dry off so it doesn’t get mouldy once back in the bag. Also do not attempt to take a pop up tent down on rough ground as the abrasion could tear the fabric around the poles as it is pulled so tight.2) Take out all the pegs.3) Take hold of the poles at opposing ends of the floor of the tent and bring them together – imagine bending a large fabric taco.4) When the two or three hoops have been brought together turn the tent so that it is stood on its side.5) Once stood on its side whilst still holding the ‘fabric taco’ together with one hand, use your other hand to grab the poles at the top furthest away from you. Pull these poles down towards the ground and towards you at the same time. The tent should fold in on itself and resemble a multilayered disc.6) Once you have this disc shape put the restraining strap around the tent and pop it back in the bag.
Note: With brand new pop up tents the poles are very resistant to folding and will try to re-erect themselves so please be careful.Obviously it is quite hard to explain in words how to take down a pop up tent so we have a video on our home page to help you.
