Enviroshade canopy instructions

Updated March 28, 2017

Enviroshade canopy tents are temporary sun shelters that are self-contained. The canopies are designed to go up quickly without tools. The Enviroshade poles are housed in sleeves. The poles telescope out and lock into position. When erecting and taking down the canopy, it helps to have an assistant. Clear away any debris in the area the canopy is placed.

  1. Take the storage bag off the canopy and place the canopy on the ground. Pull out the four tent poles until they click into place. Look for a metal knob sticking out of a metal hole, indicating the poles are secure in place.

  2. Stand on one side of the canopy and have the helper stand directly opposite you. Walk backward while holding the canopy material. The tent will begin to open up, and the roof will self-erect.

  3. Place the Enviroshade canopy down so the tent pole feet are firm and on the ground.

  4. Go around the canopy and press the metal knobs on the poles in so the poles release and compress.

  5. Stand on one side of the canopy, with your helper on the opposite side. Grip the canopy as the helper does the same and walk toward the centre of the canopy. The fabric will fold into the centre of the poles. Push it into the centre as you go.

  6. Bring the four poles as close together as possible and tuck any remaining fabric to the centre of the canopy. Slide the stuff sack over the tent and cinch down the closure on the bag.
