Hi, I have a tent that the pole bent last year during a camping trip. I’m going camping soon and all I need to do is replace the poles, but since the stores are closed, I’m not sure what to do. I have the kingdom 4 tent
I am not an REI employee, but if I were faced with this situation, I would purchase a tent repair kit,which usually includes a reinforcing sleeve and instructions. Repair the tent and use. I ha no idea if you can purchase the tent poles by themselves.
@Wignmads1 Thanks for reaching out!
We're sorry to hear that your tent poles are bent. You have a couple of options for replacing your tent poles:
Depending on the severity of the bend in the pole, you may be able to use a tent pole splint to get your tent functioning again, or at least to get you through your upcoming trip. Typically, REI Kingdom tents come with a repair tube, so you may already have one. You can find more information about fixing a broken tent pole in our Expert Advice article How to Fix a Tent Pole.
Hopefully this helps, thanks!
