Steps I Took to set up my Flex-Bow Tent

  • Find a flat area free of sharp objects to layout your tent.
  • I suggest you lay down a tarp under your tent that helps with two things:
    • It can help protect the floor of your tent from sharp objects
    • It makes rolling up your tent at the end of your camping trip much easier.
  • Next, make sure the front of your tent is exactly where you want it, before hammering your stakes in the ground.

Layout your Flex-bow tent correctly

  • Stake down all four corners, then
  • Stake down all the sides
    • recommend you have extra stakes and strong stakes if you may be camping in rocky ground.
    • See some stakes I really like in some product descriptions below.

Stake down your Flex-Bow Tent

  • Connect the end of the ridge-pole to the side flexible rods.

Install flexible rods at end of ridge pole

  • Make sure the face post is oriented down towards the ground, as your supports need to tie-in to this.
