Maybe I'd give it a higher rating, but I'm so irritated right now, I just can't do it....got my cord pulled through all my pole pieces and went to put up tent, only to find, since the other cord broke, I'd lost one of the pole segments! And.....cut my new cord's excess...so now I'm screwed or have to rig it up or buy another and do it all again!.....Arghhhhh! Guess if I'd lined it up with the other pole, I'd have noticed, but whoda thunk of that?
Tip I don't see here, that I found elsewhere, that REALLY helped me get this done fast.....get two sets of locking pliers....channelocks, visegrips, whatever. Pull cord taught after feeding through one segment, lock it tight, then do the same at next, lock that one, and release the first....rinse and repeat, and you will quickly be done in no time! If only I'd had all 9 pieces, instead of 8!!!!:(
It's a much better option than buying a new fiberglass pole. The ferrules aren't really much use unless you have the same thickness poles, and there wasn't an option to get just the size you needed. However, a broken shock cord is the one repair that I've ever really had to make on tent poles, so this set worked well enough.
As far as directions go, there aren't any in the kit, but isn't it kind of obvious? Put line through pole, run line through washer, tie knot in line, let tension pull line back into ferrule, washer prevents cord from slipping back through cord. If you need instructions, you can go to the company's web site to find them.
If you have fiberglass tent poles that have attached external couplings (the aluminum parts that the fiberglass poles slide into), start from the end with the couplings -- that would have been easier in retrospect.
Be patient - in can be frustrating, but the end result works fine.
