half dome 2 plus - deteriorated strings within the poles


I have a half dome 2 plus tent and the strings within the poles got dried up and the elasticity of the string is gone.

Currently, I can't use the tent because of this.

I was wondering if there is a way to order new poles?

Hi @itaisharabi - Thanks for reaching out! 

If your poles are still in good working condition and you just need to replacement the interior cord, we carry 1/8" Shock Cord for performing tent pole repairs. We carry it for purchase by the foot, or also in the Gear Aid Elastic Shockcord 7' pack. You'll want to take a look at the cord you have in your tent pole to make sure that 1/8" cord will fit. Make sure you take into consideration having to tie a knot in the cord that fits inside the pole.

We recommend taking a look at this expert advice article on How to Fix a Tent Pole. It has some great tips and a video on how to replace the shock cord.

Hopefully this helps!
