my coleman ridgeview tent had two broken/split poles. the coleman site was out of stock on replacement poles but they had them here on Amazon. two days later I have my new poles. first you need to take apart your old poles, do this by putting all the poles in line, then stretch the cord out one end until you can cut or untie the knot at the end. remove the damaged poles and put aside. match up your new pole to an existing pole that is in good shape. hold them along side each other with the metal ends at one end.... wrap tape at the top of the new pole about where the old pole meets. mark the tape with a sharpie so you know where to cut. the tape will help keep the fiberglass from fraying as you cut. we used our dremel cut off tool to cut. we first scored around the sharpie line. the while turning the pole as you cut, continue to cut into the pole slowly! dont push it let the tool do the work. (also wear googles and a dust mask)once the end is cut off, sand the end your keeping to smooth it out, then we sealed the end with some superglue spread on the tip. this helps smooth it more and finishes the end really nice. now you can string this new pole onto the rest, tie a knot at the end and your set. this kit comes with extra elastic cord , which I did not need as my cord was a bit stretched so it was able to stretch again and re-knot the end. the kid also has a thin wire with a hooked end (this is in one of the poles to keep it straight) there is also a tiny rubber bit that fits on the end of the wire to protect it in storage. it has 2 pole tips that my tent dose not use, but this is meant to work with many type tents. there are 4 poles and they will be longer than you need but you cut them to fit. the cutting is not hard to do. I will get some photos up to help show you this product and what we did.
this is a great kit.
Don't just "cut the pole to length with a hacksaw," as that will cause the cut end to split again and you will be back where you started. Instead, clamp your hacksaw in a vise, blade up, chuck the pole section in your electric drill and spin it against the saw blade. Then clean and chamfer the cut end with a file.
Also, thread the elastic through the pole BEFORE cutting it (the elastic, that is).
I've read reviews of troubled cutting, but I'm sure people were doing it wrong. First of all, fiberglass is fiberglass - you're not going to cut it with bolt cutters or a rough saw. To avoid splitting the fibers you'll need a dremel or die grinder with cutoff disk, or less preferably a band saw or hacksaw with a very fine-gauge blade. After cutting, grind or sand the outer sharp edges to prevent future splitting and the inner sharp edges to prevent cutting of the elastic string.
I also read about trouble re-threading the poles. It's definitely necessary to clean the metal couplings if they have caked mud inside. It was also necessary for me to squish the hook on the threading wire a bit, with pliers - it wouldn't fit inside the glass reeds otherwise. Aside from these obvious things, I can't imagine any difficulty.
I cut the new poles down to length using a "tubing cutter" used to cut plumbing pipes. This worked extremely well and I had no splitting or splinters. It left a smooth clean cut.
To thread the shock cord through I had to ream/bore out the end of the non-ferrule side of the new pole a little with the tip of one side of a needle nose pliers and to run it through the last part of an existing pole I had to widen the hole a bit on the end with a drill. It was the side of the pole that gets stuck into the ground once the tent is set up.
To facilitate the tension of the shock cord for the last two sections I wrapped the cord around a click syle pen and tucked the cord into the pocket clip of the pen to hold the tension.
The color of the new poles do not match the existing poles but that is purely cosmetic.
All of this took an hour and the final product/result is great.
I didn't have glue to hold the new metal tip on, so I squeezed it down slightly with pliers to make a tight fit - don't oversquish it! And I used another reviewers tip to cut the fiberglass pole by putting it in a drill and rotating it against the hacksaw - worked GREAT!
It is nice to have a new shockcord, I found the tool to thread it through very sturdy and helpful, I will take advantage of it by getting new shockcord for the other poles, since mine have extra length on them which makes it tough to thread the poles together. I thought their instructions for cutting the shockcord to length made it too short and tight, which probably help is putting the poles together but will make the shockcord fail faster. I made mine quite a bit longer - still stretched but not so much.
