Folding the genji tent?? Help! - 12/10/09 01:16 AM

Okay, so I got a new pop up tent.. The one I was using wasn't the best.

Trouble is, heck if I can figure out how to fold it! Help! No instructions came with it. lol

It's been sitting set up in my nieces room for about a week -- love it.. but now she's spending the night tomorrow night and it needs to be put away.

Lemme see if I can explain it so it makes sense. Ok, so it's all set up, zipper side facing forward.

Stand to the SIDE of the tent. Grasp the sides (there should be a metal feeling bar inside) and reach across and pull the other side to you (also should have metal feeling bar) Pull both of those bars together, so now the tent should be folded in half.

Then with it in half (shaped like a almond or something lol) grasp the top, and bend down. Folding the first half, in half. When you get the top side down to the bottom, grab the bottom edges (you'll feel the metal bars, make sure you have both bottom edges) This is going to seem awkward, and once you grab the two bottom edges, it's going to want to like twist and fold up automatically. Just kinda let it fold up how it's trying to.

So to sum up, you fold it in half long ways- then fold it in half again top to bottom. Then allow it to kinda spin itself back into the circle.

Hope this helps!

I'm not sure that made sense, but if not maybe someone will scan the directions for you and upload them to here. I threw mine away :/ Good luck!

I'll try what you suggested, but yes, if anyone can scan the directions for me.. please do!

I've managed to fold it up long-wise and stick it behind my desk.. So, it's kinda just chillin there, looking like it's about to pop out and attack me at any moment! tounge

Okay, I finally got the tent down, but... well, somehow I managed to put two small hole in on the yellow part that wraps around the metal (not any part that the gliders touch).. I think it got stuck on something without me knowing..



..hoping it doesn't cause problems, or tear more with each use...:/ I put regular tape over it now (didn't have duct tape) but I'm pretty sure the regular tape isn't much help.
