We have now introduced a bell tent tripod pole, which eliminates the need for a centre pole! This is perfect for those of you who like to have a large bed inside your bell tent, so you won't need to worry about the centre pole getting in the way.
The tripod pole is extremely sturdy, so this will ensure correct set up for your bell tent. Like all of our poles, they are extra thick, strong and spring loaded. You will also receive rubber caps for each end.
This has transformed our camping experience by freeing up the centre of the tent for sleeping and eating. Furthermore, combined with a fly sheet and a removable ground sheet (zipped) it allowed the packing away of the bell tent and ground sheet whist under the protective rain cover of the fly sheet. This was possible by lowering the tripod by bending the three poles at the knees and the pulling the tent from below the fly sheet, after unpegging the tent and separating the tent from the ground sheet. The poles can the be returned to their full height to allow the tent and ground sheet to be folded away whilst under the protective cover of the fly sheet.
