10′ X 10′ Sundome Tent 9160K101

Hi Guys, I have a tent pole which goes through the centre of my tent. A
tough outback tent from Australia. Imagine if you will a t-**** shaped
tent. The centre pole needs to be strong and when pushed up through the
centre holds up the tent.
The existing pole is telescopic. A pole
fits inside the other and when the pole is lengthen to raise the tent
to required height you have to turn the screw at the side of the pole
TIGHT to prevent the pole from closing together the two pieces.
PROBLEM
is that in a good wind the pole does work itself free and start closing
dropping the tent. How c
Experienced athletes share their insights in answering this question:

How to Identify and Resolve Common Issues ?

We offer a diverse range of insights on identifying and resolving common problems in sports. Our sources encompass academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays shared by seasoned athletes. :

Most tents are designed to withstand a certain amount of wind, however speeds over 30 mph can cause damage.
Set pegs at a 45 degree into the ground and adjust guy rope to keep the fly taut. Loose, flapping parts are more likely to tear. Avoid leaving the door or flaps open that might catch in the wind. Do what you can and accept the weather – try to get some sleep.
If you`re looking for a wind-resistant tent, look for double-walled tents. A good rain fly that`s tied down with guy lines has much more resistance to stop strong wind than one layer of fabric. Also, pay attention to the quality of the zippers because you don`t want to let the wind inside the tent.
In addition to using tent stakes, try attaching sandbags or weights to the legs of your canopy. Canopy sandbags can be filled with a material like sand or pebbles and provide additional weight to help your canopy resist the wind.
Most tents, when not using stakes, are made to withstand winds up to 20 miles per hour. If stakes are used, then this capability increases to 40 miles per hour. The majority of tents manufactured are not meant to withstand wind gusts over 50 miles per hour.
Mountaineering tents/expedition tents withstand strong wind as well as snow; many are also designed to be left set up for long periods of time.
Though many campers will orient a tent with the smaller side facing the wind for reduced resistance, it`s more important to place the side that has the strongest pole structure facing the wind.
One way a tent frame collapses is when water pools on the canopy top and adds more weight than the frame can handle. This typically happens because the canopy isn`t cut to fit tightly on the frame, so when there`s heavy rain, it`s easy for puddles of water to form.
The most important thing to keep your tent dry in the rain is waterproofing it. While most tents are water-resistant, they probably aren`t waterproof. So, you should prepare for heavy downpours by preparing your tent with a waterproof spray like Nikwax`s Tent & Gear spray.
They also usually come with strong, thick poles and will hold up much better against the wind. Again, a clear win for canvas. Canvas tents are often more expensive than nylon tents! – However, when considering value for money durability also needs to be taken into account.
There are many benefits of sidewalls for your tent. They keep out inclement weather and wind, keep the air still underneath, allow for climate-controlled tents, and protect your event from outdoor variables.
If you are planning on locking your tent, a small cable lock or padlock will do the job. These make it easy to loop together and lock the two tent zippers on any tent door, preventing unwanted intruders. There will be holes in the zippers for the padlock or cable to pass through.
A downside of dome tents is that they tend to catch in the wind and be flattened or blown away.

I have faced many similar things and I find remembering the wise old saying “in order to get the right answer it is important to first ask the right question”…

I suggest you ask around those who should know such things – the coach at the local schools, local teams. If you don’t get satisfaction then why not ask your local repair shop or fabricator if they can make what you need at a reasonable cost.
