However, the long sides have a tendency to touch the side of the tent. Adding guys at the middle of each of the long sides seems to resolve this issue. The only subtlety is the door; the guy line should attach to the left side of the door zipper (when facing the tent) since I'm right-handed.
- 6 stakes
- 6 guy lines each about 2 feet long
- 4 corner attachments
- 2 side attachments for the long sides
- zipper pull
The six guy point attachments are made from siezed loops of 1/8" braided nylon cord.
These loops are sewn directly into the corners...
... the middle of the back ...
... and the left side of the zipper.
The zipper pull is a bit short, so I added a lanyard. The lanyard starts as 2 feet of 1/8" nylon cord.
Here is the completed lanyard, which is tied directly onto the zipper pull.
Finally, I added guy lines and set the tent up. Once up, I sealed the seams!
