      OEM Quality replacement parts to get your tent back on the trail.

      Measure your split pole diameter and buy the right kit.

      Measure the broken pole's length and cut one (or more as necessary) of these to length.

      Re-string the shock cord.

      This comes complete with a stringing wire which helps with the shock cord.

      Used to bow a sailboat awning so rain does not collect on it. Sewed new pockets and loops in awning and it works like a charm.

              even though the 7.9mil are the smallest they sell they are still wider than the originals so they don't fit the existing poles and the wire for feeding the shock cord is too thick to fit into poles.

                            Works well. You need one per pole to fix. Be sure to check the size carefully. I bought the wrong size the first time; the different sizes are very close.

                                  • Q:

                                    Does the 5/16 in. diameter refer to the fiberglass pole itself, or the metal ferrule on the end? Or does it refer to the hole inside the fiberglass tube where the shock cord is?

                                    My tent poles are 23" segments with a 5/16" inside diameter hole in the tent pole. They measure 9/16" outside diameter. Hence my confusion.

                                      The diameter of 5/16 inches for the Eureka Fiberglass Pole Repair Kit is the inside diameter of the metal ferrule and also the diameter of the fiberglass pole that fits into the metal ferrule....give or take a fraction of an inch.

                                      As long as the pole is fiberglass and the pole diameter is 5/16" this repair kit will work. You will need to cut the pole to size and re shock cord the pole set.

                                      If the poles are maade of fiberglass, you might be able to utilize a fiberglass repair kit if you can match the diameter of the pole. This is for repairs only, it is not a full length pole,

                                    I need 1/4 inch pole kit. Do you have one? Or can I use a replacement pole 5/16th as a sub? Needs to be 5' long.

                                      5/16 is just 1/16" bigger in diameter than a 1/4". You are in a better position to determining if this will work. Are there any fittings that need to have a 1/4" pole only attach to the pole? If not then you can get this kit and replicate the pole sections that you would neeed to get the total length of the pole you need.

                                      As long as you have the brim rods you can measure them on the non metal end. If the diameter is 5/16" then this would work. You could piece in a pole section that would repair the broken one you have and use the shock cord to re shock cord the pole.

                                      The tent pole repair kit comes with shock cord. However if you want just the cord then Backpacking Pole Shock cord Repair Kit would be a better product to order. Refer to item # 21912
