I have a REI Quarter Dome T1 I purchased new in 2015. The shock cord for the tent poles rotted and now I can’t figure out the configuration to get it back together with new shock cord. Does anyone have this tent where they could reply with a photo of the tent poles bound in the shock cord? The little pivot plastic piece plus the anchor piece midway on the silver pole makes this unusually difficult.
Thanks for reaching out!
Here is a link to the 2015 version of the REI Co-op Quarter Dome 1. I'm not sure if this will help as the picture isn't very big, however, you can zoom in on specific sections which may give you the detail you need.
Hopefully this helps, thanks!
Thanks - I had scoured the internet and YouTube and this was the best photo that I could find. Unfortunately the silver sections are two different segment lengths and the end pieces are also two different lengths so I won't be able to reverse engineer anything from that picture.
Hopefully someone has this tent sitting around and they would be a hero and take a picture of the tent poles folded as they come out of the sack and I could use that as a guide.
We're so close! I still have my Quarter Dome from 2012ish and the poles and shock cords are in perfect shape. I'm about to retire it and would gift the poles to you, but the T1 looks to be a bit different configuration than the model I have
Wow, thanks for considering that @KayakTony - yeah it looks like there are more than one configurations of this tent. In scouring YouTube I saw the ones with doors on each side. Mine is the one with a door on one side, so there is only one orange pole assembly.
This is my layout - my poles are in perfect shape, I just need to put them back together in order with new shock cord but since the poles are 'free range' now I can't figure out the layout. I am assuming you have a different version of this tent - the one that has two doors? Hoping that the photo appears below:
I have the above qdt2 also bought around 2015 (maybe earlier), I lost my poles and REI recommended a firm that does replacements for the qd,, maybe someone there remembers that firm.
It is Tentpole Technologies from here
They are a small shop and it is almost certainly better to call them than rely on communicating through their website
