Essential for spares or repairing your damaged Fibreglass Poles.
Most manufacturers do not warranty fibreglass poles. The biggest problem with Tents & Awnings that have a fibreglass poled frame is they break. This can be the 1st time you use your tent or awning or after many uses. This can be while just pitching your tent or awning or as the result winds. The main issue with fibreglass poles is the hole in the centre of the pole not being central. This occurs during manufacture. This can cause the pole to split when pitching the tent as you put tension on the pole, if the central hole is off centre, there is less fibreglass in one direction and so a weakness in the pole. Depending on the position this weakness ends up when tensioning the pole, it can split , and is the biggest problem the first few times you pitch your tent or awning. Storm damage to fibreglass poles is self explanatory.
