10ft x 15ft Short Ridge Removable Wall Rectangle
with 7ft walls
Canvas is 15oz water-repellent cotton canvas duck natural colored (light cream) (not fire-retardant treated)
This tent has removable walls that hang down between 8 inch tall valences. The walls are hung on clips and hooks, and are detachable to allow the tent to have one or more sides open, use it as a sunshade, and to make it easier to carry around rather than haul on heavy piece.The 7ft tall walls require poles of about 7ft-3in with 3/8in pins in the end.The poles may be made from 2x3’s, cut down 2x4’s, or strong dowels. The tips of the poles must be large enough to keep from damaging the grommetted points. The grommets are hand-sewn super reinforced, and are made to be very long-lasting. The tips of the tent are also reinforced with heavy pads that should outlast the tent itself.A ridge pole 60 inches long is recommended, usually made with a 2x4 on edge, with holes about 2 inches in from each end. Although you can use 2 poles and skip the ridgepole, a T arrangement works best with a single center pole. Simply bolt the ridgepole to the tent when setting it up, and make a center pole with a pin short enough to not go all the way through the ridgepole. You can also make a center pole by screwing a floor flange (1”) for threaded pipe to the ridgepole, which can be made stronger by putting a short 2x3 piece on either side of the flange and screwing it all together. This would allow 1” black iron pipe to be used for a center pole which can be taken apart in sections held together with couplers and another floor flange on the bottom. Galvanized pipe does not work as well and is virtually impossible to keep paint on if you want to paint it.
Parts you will need to get:
20 Ropes about 12.5ft long
20 12in landscape spikes for ropes
20 shorter stakes for wall bottom (6” work well)
20 side poles about 7ft-3in long with 3/8in pins
1 ridge pole 60” long (2x4)
1 center pole (or 2 if you prefer)You can usually get by with less side poles or even put a long 2x4 across a section to have a clear opening to eliminate some or all the middle poles on one side. To do that, make the end poles shorter with a longer pin and attach the mid grommet holes wit 3/8in bolts and nuts. This is a common method for vendors using this design to keep clumsy customers from tripping on ropes and knocking poles over.
