Replacing the bungee in folding tent pole
I remember bookmarking a page about replacing the bungees in the folding tent poles, but for the life of me I can't find it. And I can't find in on the forum search function either.
So, please, if anyone has any ideas or tips about replacing those rascally bungee in the aluminum poles, please let me know.
I have an REI Clipper tent ( 3 poles, 2 persons). It's about 7 yrs old so the bungees are all warped and no longer working, though the rest of the tent is OK. Well, the rubber coat on the underside of the rain tarp is peeling too.
Can these poles be repaired with basic tools? (I'm on the road now)
Would REI repair the poles if I brought them into the store?
