This is now my forth set of tent poles I’ve purchased and I believe the last now that I have tent pole success.
My first set of tent poles were good, but after a few nights near or on the beach they began to get stuck and required force to extend or retract. Here is link to the first set.
My second set were all metal and I purchased from an outdoors store, they looked cheap, the were cheap yet they performed well until I got near the coast. I ended up placing tape on them to that the metal pinch ring wouldn’t slip.
Now I need to check but I also have the Ozark Trail Multi-Purpose Tarp Shelter, 12′ x 12′ with Steel Poles from Walmart, I need to take pictures of them and remember why I bought them…
