Triplex Instructions

Cutting Guy Lines:
Guy lines are pre-cut and attached for you. Linelocs are sewn in place for adjusting the lines. If you choose to switch out your lines for a different cord these are the default lengths:

Peaks (2x) - Cut 102 inches (259 cm) and tie a stake loop at 40 inches (102 cm). The long end attaches to the tent and the short end attaches to the door hooks.

Side Walls (4x) - 54 inches (137 cm)

Corners, bottom of walls (6x) - 34 inches (86 cm)
Setup Instructions:
  1. Adjust your two trekking poles to around 48 inches (122 cm).
  2. Give your corner guy lines some slack. Stake out all four corner guy lines at a 45 degree angle, roughly straight off the corner points.
  3. Insert the front trekking pole outside the screen with the handle at the peak and the tip in the ground. Stake the front line.
    • If the peak is too high, tighten the front corner lines. If it is too low, loosen them.
    • The corners of the tent should be about 6-8 inches (18cm) off the ground.
  4. Insert the back trekking pole the same way and stake it out.
    • If the walls are not smooth, adjust the position of your corner stakes.
  5. Stake the wall tie outs. You can stake the three wall tie outs on each wall independently, or run all three to a single stake.
Any of the four doors can be clipped down, or rolled up independently. Leave at least one down-wind door open for air flow unless the weather is very bad.

Seam Sealing:
All Zpacks shelters have taped seams and bonded tie outs! No seam sealing necessary.
