Instruction how to set up EZ pop up tent:1. First
you have to find a smooth, flat site where you will set up a pop up
tent. Make sure that rainwater doesn’t collect at that spot. Clear away
all the rocks, sticks and debris. Make sure that there aren’t any
branches or power lines to touch the tent.
2. Pull the ends of the frame apart until it is fully extended. (ypu may need an extra pair of hands for that);
3. Place the canvas over the extended frame. Align the strips and secure the top to the tallest trusses. Attach the strips to the outside corners of the canopy.
4. Take the diamond-shaped part of the trusses on the bottom and on the top and push hands together while lifting the canopy. In this way, you will open the frame. Keep walking backward until the canopy is fully opened.
5. At the each corner of the canopy, there is a snap button, which you should push up into position until it locks into place. Apply this step until you have secured all the corners.
Although they are very useful and functional items, EZ pop up tents are vulnerable to wind so if the wind starts to blow you will have to take down the tent in order to avoid any damage.
....actually few "motion pictures" are much better than words, so let's witness the process of setting-up the EZ tent.
You can get a two man or a four-man tent that usually fits one to two people and their belonging comfortably.
Back in 1983, we bought a little one-man tent for our dog Kelly. She would go in there whenever she was bored or just needed to get away toy her own safe place. We always had people stopping by and she would try to get away and hide.

After we bought the tent pop up she called that home and never again tried to crawl under our popup trailer for hiding. Buy 1984, we had another dog and decided she needed her own space as well, so she got a pop up tent as well.
She was as happy as could be with all her toys and her food and water. We travel all over the country and see many people who use these tents for dogs and the kids. It gives them a place all their own and they can invite friends over and not clutter up the camper.
You see many of these tents, but I never seen so many as I seen in West Virginia or maybe it was Washington. Well one of those states, they were all over. People had them for the kids, the dogs and just for keeping their belonging in as well as firewood unbelievably. One family had five kids and a dog; they all had their own little pop tent to call their own space.
The Ez pop up tent was designed for hikers in mind, but today people find many uses for them and they are easy to store and fold away to a small little package that fits nicely in the trunk or under the bed in the popup trailer.
