If you need to repair or replace a broken pole look no further. Don't get frustrated becuase of a broken tent pole - use this awesome set of seven fibreglass tent poles to easily repair, replace or just have a spare. The tent pole replacements have a diameter of 11mm and measure 7.75m in length when joined together using their durable metal ferrules. Other extras include elastic shock cord and an insertion rod to thread it through the connected camping tent poles. Shock cord allows the attached poles to be bent without snapping, forming the frame of curved dome tents and similar models. Using the shock cord also allows the attached poles to be folded up and put into storage ready to use again on your next camping adventure. Because the spare tent poles are made from fibreglass they are simple to trim down to a desired size with a hacksaw. Two male ferrules are also included to go on either end of the Gelert poles. These are used to keep the shock cord taut and hold it firmly in place.
