Take out your tent and lay it flat on the ground. Place your tent in the direction you want the door to face.

Arrange the tent poles at the top of their path, insert the pins in the corners of the tent, and let the poles pass through the correct pole channels until you can insert the pins into the poles.

Set the rainfly poles using the interlocking shock cord poles and insert the reinforcement pockets. Attach the rainfly to the rainfly poles. Attach the elastic loop of the rainfly to the loop at the corner of the tent. Secure the rainfly with the attachment.
