Sick of fighting with your tent pole(s) every time you set it up? Are you wondering why you are fighting with them? Well chances are that the elasticity is gone in them. But don't panic all is not lost because in just a few simple steps with some cheap tools and parts you can fix your tent poles too. For very cheap ($1/meter).
(ps the note editor function isn't working for me so i'm sorry in advance for the lack of notes)

Step 1: Materials/Tools

For this project you will need:
More than enough elastic the thicker the better as long as it fits (at least 500mm/2' more than you need). (I doubled mine up as it was all i could find).
1 pair of Vice Grips.
A Knife/ Leatherman.
10 Minutes of your time.
This is great to know! Thanks for sharing.
yeah thanks. I made this after realising that no one had made an instructable like this before. And I needed to do this anyway
