Difficulty: 0

standard features on all of our wall

tents include a zipper door a sod cloth

ridge pole sleeves the stove Jack ropes

with metal tensioners and steel stakes

our stove jacks come in your choice

four inch 5 inch or six inch diameter

opening keep in mind when you order your

stove jack you want to have a little bit

of gap around your stove pipe and your

stove jack so if the wind is blowing

your stove jack is free to move up and

down around your stove pipes without

lifting it up off of the stove this is a

standard Eve on all of our tents we

reinforce the corners with the

reinforced patching and we reinforce

each grommet individually down the side

we supply two ropes for the corners and

one for each grommet down the side of

the tent we like our number four grommet

er set with our kick press it does a

superior job of making sure all of them

are tight and that's when a grommet

performs the best for you is when it is

set tight and it's not allowed to spin

the reason we do not sew webbing or a

rope in our eves is we want this grommet

to fell whenever we lose a grommet

something really bad has happened a ATV

got caught in the rope a bear a horse a

mule and it tore the grommet out if we

have that webbing or ropes sewn in there

instead of that grommet failing it tears

the whole side of the tent out so our

grommets are actually designed to tear

out by design doesn't happen all that

often but when it does you'll be glad

you just lost one grommet instead of the

whole side of your tent an area of

confusion on our tents we provide ropes

they're loosely folded up inside the

tent when you purchase a tent you'll

have to unfold the tent to find them the

ropes will look like this you'll tie one

end, the loose end to the grommet and the

other end has our tensioner on it the

way the tensioners work if you grab the

Rope between the two holes and pull that

knot slides up against the hole and it's

just a plug and you just keep pulling

and you make this loop this loop is what

wraps around the stake at the bottom and

the more tension you have on the rope

the better the tensioner holds so you

wrapped a loop around the stake and you

just slide this tension or up until it

gets tight once it gets tight you let go

the stakes that we provide come in a bag

there's 44 stakes in a bag there's two

different sizes of stakes we have 10

inch stakes and 12 inch stakes the tens

the shorter ones are designed to go

through the grommets around the bottom

of the tent and the 12s are designed to

go out for your ropes you want to drive

your steak straight up and down a stake

driven straight up and down in the

ground has more holding power than one

driven at an angle it's counterintuitive

but it's a fact it has more ground in

the way if you drive it straight up and

down some people don't like staking

through the grommet at the bottom you

can simply turn a grommet into a becket

into a loop by a short piece of rope

with two knots on it what you do is you

fold this rope feed it through the

grommet and you have a loop so you can

use that if you prefer a bit bigger

stake at the bottom you certainly can do

that with our grommet stakes is probably

the hardest thing to provide for all of

our customers there's just so many

different terrains out there I'd

recommend for the four corners at least

getting some longer rebar if you happen

to set up in a soft marshy area you'd

want a longer steak with more holding

power a standard feature on our tent is

the ridgepole sleeves what these are for

is if you want to just pack the canvas

into the wilderness and set the tent up

with Timbers you run a log a ridge pole

through the tent and support it with two


this drawstring on here is designed you

can seal this up and tie it if you don't

want them exposed a lot of people will

leave it open for ventilation we have

this tent set up with our internal frame

our internal frame comes with a four-way

angle at this location that angles

designed to receive a short pole if you

want to hang a lantern or you can stick

a longer ridge pole in it for a tarp for

a vestibule or an awning you should take

care and make sure the pin on that

four-way angle is to the back of the

tent I'll put the very top of the tent

there's a grommet that will go over this

pin we put that grommet on there because

it keeps the tent tight in the end keeps

the canvas from wanting to crawl up over

the top of the frame make sure the pins

to the back you can turn this angle

around the wrong way you might be able

to stretch your tent that five inches

that you don't want to and if you are

setting up a rain fly you definitely

will not be able to stretch the rain fly

that far soap into the back the

ridgepole sleeve if you have that pull

in there can be sealed up around that as

well we also have a small version of

these we call eastleigh that would be

located on each side at the corners this

is an advantage with the internal frame

you can run another column out in front

of your tent having the frame all

interconnected is absolutely the best

way to accomplish an awning a porch a

cooking area whatever you want to call

it out here in the front so if you want

to have an awning the best way to do it

is Eve sleeves at the side and order an

extra set of angles for the front

standard feature on our wall tents as

the stove jack it comes in 4 inch 5 inch

or 6 inch diameter opening it's designed

to run single wall pipe

you want to have a little bit of gap

around the stove pipe in the stove Jack

this is to allow the tent to move freely

up and down around the pipe if the wind

is blowing without lifting the pipe up

off of the stove any moisture rain snow

whatever comes in it just sizzles on the

hot stove and dissipates there's a flap

on the outside that's designed to roll

down and tie over the hole if you're not

using the stove be sure to tie it well

so it doesn't unroll when you are using

the stove our tents come standard with

A sod cloth the sod cloth is a band of

material 12 inches wide sewn in around

the bottom of the 10th the idea behind

the sod cloth is after you have your

tent set up its turn to the inside or

you can place sod or dirt on it this

seals the tenth of the ground keeps the

wind and rain and snow from coming in

around the bottom of the tent ours is

designed to come to the inside where the

heat is so when it's time to go home

your tent is not frozen solid to the

ground if you're really expecting some

adverse conditions it's a good idea to

bury the sod cloth that will make a more

secure tent for you it's made out of a

vinyl so it does not rot as quickly as

one made out of canvas and it's easier

to clean if you get it muddy and dirty

one of the options on our wall tent is

the Colorado door also known as a storm

flap the idea behind the Colorado door

is to protect your zipper it keeps the

rain and snow and sleet from piling up

on your zipper and potentially freezing

it also saves wear and tear on your

zipper as you won't use the zipper every

time because the flap just kind of

covers the hole it keeps dirt debris

snow and ice from plugging up your

zipper and causing damage to the slider

the way you work the Colorado door from

the inside you simply buckle the buckles

before you zip the door shut so you can

use it from either side in the event of

a zipper failure it's a secondary way of

sealing the tent door

one of our most popular options on our

wall tents a screen door is another

popular option on our wall tents a

screen door is a great way to get

ventilation inside the tent and keep the

bugs outside if you're debating whether

to get a screen door or not it's a lot

easier which means cheaper to add it

before we sew the whole tent together we

when we normally make a screen

door we sew the screen door in it when

we're just working with these two panel

the screen door will unzip with the

number 10 YKK zipper just like our tents

and will tie up out of the way when not

in use it'll be like it's not there but

it'll be great to have when the bugs are

flying and you'll want to get inside and

away from them the screen door works

best if you have a second opening inside

your tent having one opening inside your

tent and dead air inside if you get a

little smoke from the wood stove or some

smell in there you're trying to get out

the tent it's very hard to get that air

moving having a second opening the cross

ventilation is worth every penny so I

would say if you're debating on option

get the window get the screen door now

you'll be glad you did one of the best

things we've added to our camp in recent

years are these hanging organizers we

make them out of velcro that velcro is

around the internal frame they easily

attach at any location you like we have

two sizes the large one we call the

kitchen and the smaller one goes up

above the cop it's perfect for all your

personal items your flashlight your

wallet your pistol your keys having all

that stuff readily available easy to see

with our see-through pocket design

ensures you can find it readily I like

to have one above every cot in our camp

so everybody has a place for their stuff
