FIELDCANDY ADVICE As the famous saying goes: Look after your tent and your tent will look after you. Well, maybe its not that well known, but its certainly true. This section advises you on how to use and look after your FieldCandy tent, so that you and it remain on good terms for years to come. Before putting up your FieldCandy tent for the first time, check that all components are present and undamaged. See Whats in the box? on pages 11 and 12. Ideally, practice at home first so itll be easier when it comes to the real thing. Choose a level site with good drainage, avoid areas that could flood or hold water. For safety, dont camp directly under trees. Trees also create sap which is difficult to remove without damaging your flysheet. Remove any stones or hard objects that could puncture the groundsheet and try to wear soft shoes or bare feet when inside your tent. Position the tent with the door facing away from any prevailing wind and always shut both doors when you are away from your tent, particularly on windy days. Always use storm guylines provided in windy or stormy conditions. Always put up your tent with all zips closed. Always angle tent pegs away from the tent and only use the hammer provided. When putting your inner tent away, fold towards the doorway with the zip open to let air escape. WHATS IN THE BOX? Inner tent, Flysheet, A-frame poles, Ridge pole, Connector, Pegs, Hammer, Peg puller, Spares kit, Padlocks, Storm guylines, Instructions, Every FieldCandy tent comes with spare tent pegs, so dont worry if there are pegs left over, even when all the peg-down points are full! SAFETY ADVICE All FieldCandy tents are fire retardant- in essence, the fabric will not continue to burn after brief contact from a flame or combustion source. Do not use detergent or bleach to wash the tent, as this will reduce its fire retardancy. Like all tents, your FieldCandy tent is not fireproof, so make sure that all cooking, fire lighting, smoking etc. takes place a safe distance away. Its also advisable not to store combustible materials in or very near the tent. ALWAYS Keep the tent exit clear. Read and follow the safety instructions on all equipment. Know in advance how youll tackle a fire should one occur. AND NEVER Use the padlocks provided to lock yourself in the tent in case of fire. Only use the padlocks to reduce opportunist theft when you leave your tent unattended. TAKE CARE Not to trip over storm guylines when set out and avoid standing on tent pegs in bare feet. CARING FOR YOUR FIELDCANDY TENT With normal careful use, your FieldCandy tent should last for many years. Take it down when not in use, and avoid prolonged exposure to strong sunlight. ZIPS Periodically treat all zips with a silicon spray, especially after use in sandy or dusty conditions. TENT POLES These should be dried and occasionally wiped with silicon spray STORAGE POCKETS Please dont use for heavy items, as this may distort the tent. FLYSHEET Remove dirt with a soft brush and wipe off stains with a cloth and mild soap solution. Dont machine wash or tumble dry and never use detergent. INNER TENT If needed, wash in warm water with mild soap. Dont machine wash or tumble dry and never use detergent. Rinse carefully and dry thoroughly before packing away. STORAGE To reduce mildew your tent is treated with Ultra-Fresh, an antifungal and anti-bacterial agent. However, always ensure that your entire tent is completely dry before packing it away. Always store your dry tent in a cool dry place. If space permits, hang it open rather than folded to allow good air circulation.
