Vintage JC HIGGINS 1950S CANVAS UMBRELLA TENT (9'X11'X76') ARMY GREEN withCANOPY
WHEN IT IS ERECTED, IT MEASURES 9'X11'X7' 6. IT APPEARS TO BE MADE OF CANVAS, AND IS ARMY GREEN.THERE IS A MESH WINDOW ON EACH SIDE, WITH A PIECE OF CANVAS THAT CAN BE ROLLED UP AND TIED TO STAY UP, OR CAN BE TIED DOWN TO KEEP THEM SHUT. THE FRONT DOOR IS MESH, AND CAN BE ZIPPED UP, AND THERE IS ALSO A CANOPY THAT CAN BE LET DOWN TO COVER THE MESH FRONT DOOR. IT TOOK ME A WHILE TO PUT IT UP BY MYSELF, AND I HAD TROUBLE WITH THE POLES. IT SEEMS LIKE THERE SHOULD BE A POLE FOR THE MIDDLE, BUT THERE IS NOT ONE. I USED HIS INSTRUCTIONS TO PUT UP THE TENT, WHICH SAID TO USE A CORNER POLE IN THE CENTER, UNTIL YOU GET THE OTHER 3 POLES IN PLACE, AND THEN PUT THAT POLE IN PLACE.
THAT WORKED, BUT I HAD PROBLEMS FIGURING OUT HOW TO GET THE POLES THE RIGHT LENGTH, AND WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO IS... GET THEM IN PLACE, AT THE CORRECT LENGTH, AND THEN TURN IT TO LOCK IT IN PLACE. ALL THE POLES WORKED GREAT EXCEPT ONE. THE LITTLE METAL PIECE INSIDE THE POLE HAD COME OFF, AND WOULD NOT LOCK, BUT AFTER WORKING WITH IT A FEW MINUTES, I DID GET IT TO LOCK. SO ANYWAY, I DID GET THE TENT UP, AND IT WAS VERY STURDY, AND LOOKED GREAT.
I FOUND 2 SMALL HOLES IN THE TENT, WHICH SHOULD BE EASY TO PATCH. ONE ON THE FLOOR, AND ONE NEAR THE BACK CORNER. IT IS MISSING THE ORIGINAL WOOD STAKES, BUT I BOUGHT SOME METAL STAKES THAT WORK GREAT. OVERALL, I WOULD SAY THE TENT APPEARS TO BE IN VERY GOOD CONDITION.The item "Vintage JC HIGGINS 1950S CANVAS UMBRELLA TENT (9'X11'X76') ARMY GREEN withCANOPY" is in sale since Tuesday, September 19, 2017.
