This screen house has been used for two graduation parties and one baby shower so far and I have only owned it for six weeks!
We just used it this past weekend for my nephews baby shower. It was a perfect place for us to set up the gift station and allowed us to see all the gifts and decorations inside the canopy, as well as provided a great shaded area for our new mama to-be while she opened gifts!
Setting up the canopy is easily done with two people. The easiest way we found to set up the screen house is to lay out the canopy in the area you want it set up. We also put all the pole pieces together according to package instructions.
Once we had all our pieces set out around us we were ready to start assembling the screen house. There are 3 thinner poles. Two longer ones and one smaller one. The smaller one goes across the top on the shorter width area, the area between the canopy doors. The two longer pieces go along the diagonal from corner to corner.
The tops corners have built in hub connectors. One side of the connector is just an open circle, the other end has gripper type center. The smaller gripper section of the connect or is for the smaller diameter poles to go into.
When we had the three thinner top poles in place we moved on to the four corner poles. These four poles were also pre-strung together by a bungee style cord, making it easy to connect the sections together properly. After we had the corner poles through the side loops, we connected them at the top corner hub connectors.
Once in place we started lifting the poles to an upright position and locked the poles in at the bottom corner with the metal pin. After we had all four corners in the upright potion, we just simply went from corner to corner and straightened the screen house out.
We unzipped the tent for the baby shower and used the attached tie back to hold them open for our event.
Tearing down the screen house is as simple as releasing the corner pins and laying the screen tent back down into a flat position and removing the poles. once all the poles are removed, we simple folded the screen house canopy in half until it was about the width of the included carry/storage bag and then rolled it up the way your would a sleeping bag.
