Thumb Screw and Nut
I changed up my tent thumb screw and nuts a few years ago. The replacement nut's that I have had like 3/4 of the thread gone. I have now replaced them all with stainless hillman 4143-B Tee Nuts, I had to grind them down to fit but work better and have not had a problem with them stripping out. I also changes the thumb screw to part# 449563 10-32 x 5/8" Knurled Thumb Screws / Stainless Steel. I got my grand cabin tent in 2016, use it for 3 weeks a year and this is the only problem I have had to deal with. The quality of the tent and poles are top notch, The locking nut needs to be better.
These screws are not an ideal solution to your otherwise fine tent. I wish those poles had the push pins that other tents have. I’ve already went through 2 of these because the screws have gotten stripped. There’s already a better design solution out there use it. I bought 5 of these just in case the screws get stripped again.
A must have item for my tent
