Look good didn't suit swag snapped with little pressure not a pole set that likes any bending
Hi Jan, these poles can have limitations when used over tight bends, which makes some swag poles hard to replace. Sorry they have not solved your problem, please call us on 1300 914 007 so we can find out your swag model and make some recommendations.
Hi, I have a Kookaburra 6EV tent and all the fibreglass poles have bent over time. Some are even snapped inside the metal sleeve at one end. There are 3 poles involved. Notwithstanding the bends in the total length as I lie them on the floor, two poles are 6.22m in total length (main tent) and one pole is 4.62m in total length (annex). I have looked on eBay and cannot find anywhere with these lengths. Since you seem to deal in Kookaburra, can you (or can you suggest anyone who can) make these lengths up for me? I work in Canberra, so postcode in 2602 (to determine postage).
When it comes to fixing fibreglass poles you won't find them sold in varying lengths, instead, you need to buy a kit and cut them to length. The first thing you will need to do it work out the diameter and number of pole sections you need. Then purchase the kits (FREE DELIVERY to Canberra from Snowys), grab a hacksaw and some patience and start fixing your poles.
It's a fiddly job, but nothing difficult, just make sure you use a sharp fine toothed hacksaw blade and use a file to bevel the edges to keep it neat and reduce the chance of further breakages.
If you want to upgrade the quality of the poles, I'd recommend the Oztrail Duraplus pole kits, these feature an extra wrap over the fibreglass which strengthens and extends the life of the pole section.
I hope this is helpful, it would be an expensive exercise if we were to make them up for you, give us a call on 1300 914 007 if you have any further questions.
I have a tent with two poles. Each pole has 5 segments and a total length of 2530mm when assembled.Both poles fractured at one end with the rod splitting from the end length wise. Crack about 15 cm long.
The first thing you'll need to do is figure out the width of your poles so you can get the choose poles with the correct diameter, and get your hands on some shock cord that’s roughly 75% the length of the assembled pole with the correct diameter.
From there it's probably easiest to read our blog post about repairing a broken pole section as that goes into heaps of details and has a photo guide as well.
If you're having trouble, you can always give us a call and one of the Snowys team will be happy to talk you through the whole process.
Hi I have a 2person spinifex hawkesbury dome tent that is missing its poles. Can you pls advise which poles would work for this tent. Thanks A
Unfortunately I'm not familiar with that tent Amanda, being an Anaconda branded tent, however most of the smaller dome tents that we stock here have either the 7.9mm or 9mm poles.
