Spread out the tent on the ground, making sure the door zippers are closed but the window zippers are at least partially open which lets air into the tent as you’re setting it up. Assemble the poles, making sure all the pole sections and 2 Hubs slide completely together. Lay the assembled pole sets on top of the tent. Start placing the pole tips into the grommets located at the tent corners until all 4 pole ends are in place and the poles form a dome over the tent. Once the poles are in place, place the short individual canopy pole tips into the grommets located at the top middle of the tent. The short individual canopy pole should be in the grommets and rest above the dome tent poles. Lay the flysheet over the tent, making sure the vestibules are over the tent doors. Attach the buckle from each corner of the flysheet to the buckle at each tent corner. The webbing from the flysheet to the buckle can be adjusted to properly tension the flysheet. The flysheet should be snug, but not overly stretched. Place a tent peg at each tent corner and at each vestibule corner. If the conditions are windy, or if you anticipate that it may become windy, it is advisable to attach the guy lines as shown in the sketch below. The most important guy lines are the ones on the side of the tent where the wind is blowing. Proper guying on the side of the wind will keep the tent from shifting around.
