            The perfect replacement! Much superior quality to the original cord. Stiff enough to tread without a pull wire.
            Wish they made a little smaller diameter also for my smaller poles.

                  I replace the old stiff, inelastic shock cord in my Sierra Design tent poles. It went very well and the poles seem totally rejuvenated. I set up the tent and the poles went together well. TIme will tell on the duability but it seems to be of better quality than the original cord that came with the tent poles.

                      I bought this to replace all the shock cords that had gone limp due to normal use over 5 yrs. This product appears to be of higher quality than the original shock cords, so, I am hoping they will last until the tent is ready to throw out. Also campmor is one of the few places you can buy shock cord by the foot rather then the spool.

                          The shock cord inside my tent poles had gone bad due to age, and this was an easy, inexpensive alternative to replacing the entire tent. The tent itself is in good condition so I didn't want to spend the $$$ on a new one. All for less than $25 (incl shipping). First check your bad pole to see if the cord can be replaced. Then measure and order at least one foot extra per pole.

                            This product was used to fix a broken cord in some tent poles. The Eureka Sunrise 11 tent is enjoyed many times a year and I knew that the cord inside the poles would someday break. Hotels and motels are not options when you enjoy camping as much as we do. This product was the perfect replacement. No complaints.

                                  The E.L. Wood Braiding Bulk Shockcord is sold by the foot from a continuous length off of a bulk spool. You can order whatever length that you want.

                                How do we install this in our aluminum poles? Are directions provided? We especially wonder how to do the ends, and if it is easy to thread the cord through the pole.

                                  Usually the poles will have an endtip to tie to one end of the cord. The other end is then fed through the tubes and a small washer (smaller than the ID of the tubes but larger than the insert inside the tube. Then take the length of the hoop and multiply it by .8. That's how far to pull the cord before tying a knot to hold the washer in place. After the knot is tied, let the cord go and your done.

                                  You would not want to get bulk shock cord as a means to repairing tent poles without first getting a tent pole shock cord repair kit.
