Sustainability and Product Care

Caring for your tarp pole

After use (especially on muddy or wet terrain), take your pole apart and wipe down each section. Allow to dry completely before reassembly.

Assembly instructions

Undo the Velcro loop and allow the pole to unfold. Pull cord from the top handle until taut and notch the knot into the groove to lock it in place.
