Tent Terminology – A Campers Guide


Hydrostatic Head





Ring and 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.

IBEX Camping Logo  IBEX Camping  | "A Review from FreeIndex.
I am a Cub Scout Leader with almost 30 years experience and I would say that my knowledge of camping equipment is therefore fairly considerable, I can recommend Ibex Camping to anyone who needs good quality kit together with extremely competitive pricing. Rebecca has been a fantastic help throughout the purchasing process and given plenty of guidance to me along the way. I have now received my order with enough kit for 24 Cub Scouts to camp and I am confident that our Camp in June will now be even better, whatever the weather. 
This is a great Company with great people, thoroughly recommended.
