Zhota Tent Pitching Instructions

Download the Zhota PDF instruction sheet

Make sure camp area is free from sticks, stones and other items which could damage the groundsheet or cause discomfort.

Lay the inner tent out on the ground and peg it out.

Assemble silver and bronze poles and thread them through the colour coded pole sleeves.

Take the gold ʻspiderʼ pole and align the hubs to the clips on the central ridge of the tent.

Assemble spider poleʼs legs one at a time, threading the legs through the gaps in the pole sleeves as you go.

In less extreme conditions or when speed of pitching is a priority the spider pole does not need to be threaded through the pole sleeves.

Insert one end of each of the silver and bronze poles into the eyelets at the pegout points then push the poles into the sleeves from the other end, silver poles first, then bronze.

Push the gold poles up and fix to pegout points.

Clip the plastic pole clips on the inner to the poles and the central ridge clips to the gold poleʼs hubs. 

Place the tent outer over the top of the inner canopy.

Connect outer tent to peg out points using the buckles. 

Peg out and tension the vestibules. 

Tension the tent by adjusting the buckles at the peg out points. 

Peg and tension the guylines as required.
