SHIELD SET UP INSTRUCTIONS
1.Remove contents from stuff sack. Spread tent body out on ground.
2.Assemble the two long poles: two silver poles with “Visor connectors”, and one short pre-bend silver brow pole. Be careful to insert each pole section by hand instead of allowing the shock cord to snap them together to ensure each pole section is fully seated.
3.Run the two long poles trough the sleeves diagonally across the tent body. Be sure that the black Visor connectors are on the same end as the door. Insert the pole tips into the grommets at the four corners of the tent.
4.Insert the tips of the short brow pole in the Visor connectors.
5.Attach all clips on the tent body to the poles.

HELPFUL HINTS FOR TENT SET UP
Our tents are easy to set up, but we suggest you practice once at home before using them for the first time to avoid late night bickering with tent mates while fumbling around in the dark.
Before pitching tent, clear campsite of debris that may pierce tent floor.
We recommend staking out all corners, vestibules and guylines to increase space and ventilation. Securely staking out your tent and all guylines is crucial to maintaining the structural integrity of your tent.
Hang onto your stuff sacks or they’ll blow away and create backcountry litter.
Pull on the pole sleeve fabric when inserting poles to avoid any bunching in the material.
Push rather than pull poles through pole sleeves.
