How do I repair my broken / split poles?

If you need to replace your poles, either sections or complete poles, please visit www.campingspares.co.uk with the model year and which pole.

Below are the repair instructions for alloy and fibreglass poles:

Alloy Pole Repair Instructions

Your pole is made up of set number of sections and an elasticised cord. The cord runs through each section and is simply knotted through a nipple / pole tip at either end.

1 Measure the section / sections which are to be replaced (the new section will probably need to be cut to length). Mark the section length and cut the new section to the length measured. We would recommend using a plumbers pipe cutter or similar. Once cut, the end should be filed smooth. Tip- It may also be necessary to run the file inside the cut section.

2 Remove the pole end / nipple from one end of the pole and untie the knot, holding onto the end of the cord.

3 Remove the sections, one at a time until you reach the section / sections that need to be replaced (when it is time to re-assemble the pole it is important that the sections are put back in the same order- Tip- It may be beneficial to use numbered stickers on the sections so there is no doubt of the order).

4 Re-thread the cord back through the sections and tie a knot through the nipple / pole end.

Fibreglass Pole Repair Instructions

Your pole is made up of sections and an elasticated cord. The cord runs through each section and is simply knotted at either end.

1. Measure the section or sections which are to be replaced (the new section will need to be cut to length). Cut the new section to the length measured. We would recommend using a small hacksaw. Once cut, the end should be filed or sand papered smooth. Tip- When cutting a new fibreglass pole, cut halfway through then turn the pole round and complete the cut from the opposite end. This will help prevent splinters

2. Untie the knot at one end of the pole.

3. Remove the sections one at a time until you reach the section that needs to be replaced (when it is time to re-assemble the pole it is important that the sections are put back in the same order- Tip- it may be beneficial to use numbered stickers on the sections so there is no doubt of the order).

4. Add in the new section / sections and re-thread the cord back through the sections and tie a knot at the end. (Use tweezers to reach into the sleeve and grab the knot if required).
