(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
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.
Step 2: Remove the Old Elastic
Arrange the poles in the order that they came apart all facing the same way. This is to make it easy to put back together.
Step 3: Tie and Thread
remember that we arranged the tent poles? now you see exactly why.
Here's a trick that i used to make things easier simply use some of your old elastic or some thin wire if you have some handy to thread your new elastic through the individual pieces.
Step 4: Assemble and Tie.
Step 5: Thanks
