IMAX FR Beach shelter question

Postby EddieK » Sun Mar 12, 2017 1:18 pm

Hi guys, hoping you can help me with this predicament.

I bought an IMAX FR Beach Shelter yesterday. It doesn't come with any instructions but was easy enough to put up. However taking it down doesn't seem so easy. The shelter is designed to fold in half, with each of the six struts made of two poles joined together by a strong elastic type chord, not unlike the pop-up style tents. There just doesn't seem to be any give when I try and pull the poles apart and don't want to use too much force and cause a problem. Is there something I'm not doing right? Hoping someone out there has some advice please. Thanks, Eddie

Panic over, needed to lift the collapsed tent up and let it hang vertically for the poles to be separated.

Thanks Mickser, please post the link. It'll be useful to others. I searched for hours yesterday and couldn't find one and then found the right way to do it by chance. Eddie
