This Aluminum twist lock tension pole is a nice add on accessory for the 8101 Swag tent. Simply insert the pins on this pole into the grommets at the top head and foot of the swag tent and extend the pole until the tent is taut. This is a useful accessory when its difficult to find ground to put the guy out stakes in. Ideal for use in a truck bed, or cot.
Why do you need this pole? You don't. It is optional. It gives the added convenience to make your Swag freestanding (without use of guy ropes and stakes). It will also make the frame a little stiffer. This pole will fold up and roll up in the swag for easy storage.
The weight is 1 lb. Ship weight (with packaging) is approx 2 lbs.

we ordered two of these, since we ordered two swags... unfortunately they are awful in use, very hard to tension nd release... will be returning them. Everything else we have ordered, including a Bowflex Deluxe Tent, has been aces, so this was very disappointing and surprising.
I use this pole to keep the tent up whether I stake it out or not. And the pole collapses nicely so you can just roll it up with the tent when you put it all away. You can really tell the difference because the tent does not sag in the middle when you’re sitting inside.
Great price and works awesome at keeping the top of the tent rigid keeping the inside spacious.
This is a great addition to your tent.
Seven plus inches of snow accumulated on and around the swag on the first night, a few more during the following days and nights. The tension pole held its position / tension throughout the next four days and three nights. Great addition to the swag. Provided definite peace of mind.
Pole is what was missing from my swag tent, the pole hold the tent perfect, i tie the vents to the pole
Wow i love it, by the way the swag and the bed of my truck, no more trying to stake it down
Happy me, happy me
This is a must have piece of equipment for the swag tent and it's worth it's weight. Staking the tent down works but this pole gives it just that little extra to make it more comfortable.
