Attaching Screens to Sidewalls (fig. 2-14).
Remove footstops from sidewalls, open slide fasteners
at corners, and roll up sidewalls and liner of tent and tie
them with tie tapes near eave reinforcement. Then
place a screen between lugs at each side of tent, alining
grommets on screen with grommets on lugs. Run the
13-foot rope, attached to a top corner of screen, through
alined grommets of screen and lugs at the top, securing
with a knot at the last set of alined grommets. In the
same manner, run the 8-foot rope, attached to each side
of screen, downward through alined grommets of screen
and lugs, securing with a knot at the last set of alined
grommets. Fold screens at bottom so sod cloths are on
ground inside tent. Fasten footstops that were removed
from sidewalls to grommets at bottoms of screens, and
attach footstops to the 16-inch pins.
