    Sustainability and Product Care

    Caring for your tarp pole

    After use (especially on muddy or wet terrain), take your pole apart and wipe down each section. Allow to dry completely before reassembly.

    Assembly instructions

    Undo the Velcro loop and allow the pole to unfold. Pull cord from the top handle until taut and notch the knot into the groove to lock it in place.
