General Information

  • Wall tent angle kits are made to accept 1" steel or aluminum conduitcommonly referred to as 1" EMT (electrical metal tubing).  EMT is available at most hardware and electrical supply stores.  Shipping of the internal tent frame (poles) is very high due to the weight of an internal frame.  No tools are required to assemble conduit tent frame.  To cut the conduit all you need is a hack saw, plumbers pipe cutter, band saw, or chop saw.
  • It takes about 1 hour to cut a conduit steel or aluminum tent frame.  In most cases it is well worth the effort for the amount of money you save.  You will have significant savings using the angle kit to make a frame.
  • A cut list will be provided when you purchase a tent or provide measurements for a tent you already have.
  • At times, it is difficult to obtain the correct tent frame parts.  You must know or determine your current tent measurements in order to ensure you receive the correct tent frame parts.
  • We always have our Wilderness (all 120 degree angles) and our Montana Fixed (110 degree peak and 125 degree eave angles) Angle Kits in stock.
  • Most tents accept our Wilderness or Montana Angle Kit.  However, if your tent requires a different degree of angle, we have these too!  Anything falling outside of our Wilderness or Montana Angle Kit measurements is known as our Custom Angle Kit.
  • To accurately determine the degree of angles you need, you will need to Measure Your Tent -- click here for a helpful video.
  • Once your: A (wall height), B (slope), C (tent width), and D (tent length) are determined we can tell you the correct degree of angle you will need for your tent and provide you with a complete cut list.  You may call or email these measurements.
  • If you are having difficulties understanding how to measure your tent, please call with your questions -- we are here to help!
  • 95% of our customers buy a wall tent angle kit and make their own frame.

Recommendation for Canvas Tent Frames

  • A tent should never fit tight on a frame.  A tight fit puts pressure on the seams and zippers and will eventually cause damage.  If your door zipper does not zip easily it is usually caused by a rafter being too long.  A tight zipper will eventually fail.  If your rafters are tight, you will need to cut them down 1/2" - 1", depending on how hard it is to zip your wall tent zippers.
  • A maximum distance of 6' is recommended between rafters.  More than 6' causes sag in the roof and significantly reduces snow load carrying capacity.
  • We have a chart that lists the number of 10' conduit lengths required for different sizes of canvas tents. If you expect heavy snow loads, you will need to add extra rafters to your tent frame.  The additional rafters significantly increase the strength of your internal frame.
