To set up your new Montana Canvas Spike III Tent:
- Lay out the tent and stake out the floor at the four corners.
- Assemble the center pole and awning poles.
- Spread the tent fly out and center it over the tent by pulling the O ring on the top of the tent through the slit at the center of the fly and making sure stove jack opening in the fly is centered over the stove jack opening in the tent.
- Insert the center pole through the door and insert it into the center peak of the tent.
- Tie the 8-10 feet of rope to each of the four corners of the tent and as many of the perimeter points as necessary for the terrain and weather conditions.
- Insert the corner poles in the inside corner pouches.
- Install tension rope adjusters to all ropes by threading the rope through the hole on the concave side first and then through the hole on the convex side. Tie an overhand knot to secure. The knot will be sitting in the curve of the tension adjuster. To use: pull rope through the tension adjuster and hook over the stake and adjust the tension.
- If using the bungie cords to secure the fly, you need to make a loop in each rope for one of the bungie cord hooks. The other bungie hook attaches to a fly grommet.
- Stake the corners of the tent. Attach tent fly bungies to corner ropes.
- Add remaining inside poles.
- Stake and adjust tension on the rest of the perimeter and add remaining fly bungie cords.
