Hi Turbs,
Got my poles and brackets today. They look great. Hopefully the weather will be nice this weekend so i can get them installed. I remember reading about using something on the inner tube to tighten the gap and protect the powder coat from scratching. Any ideas?
Lou

Try the fuzzy side of Velcro.

Use the soft furry side of Velcro.
Put one piece around the top of little pole and one piece on the inside bottom of the bigger upper pole.
Make sense?
Glad you like them!
Contact me with any questions!

I know this is a stupid question, but that's the norm for me. Glue them in place?

Self-adhesive! You can find rolls of it at any of the box stores! Works great!

Thanks for taking my order TURBS. Looking forward to getting a set of poles and to starting the camping season in Ohio!
