#TentTerminology – Ring & Pin

Tent Terminology – ‘Ring&Pin’

Usually seen on Fibreglass & Steel Pole Tents – In line with the pole sleeve & attached to webbing / tape you’ll find a ring (similar to a Keyring) with pins. These pins are inserted into the bottom of your Tent Pole, they give your tent poles their shape and stability. More than one ring? Choose the ring that most comfortably fits into the pole end. Still a little Tight? Make sure that the webbing / Tape, running underneath the tent isn’t twisted or trapped.

Hint: Choose a tent with tension straps on the webbing/Tape – this saves excess pressure being needed to locate the Pin.
