    Connecting the slats

     
    Children’s tent

    Have the slats and the rod cut to the specified size at a DIY store. The 1.20 m long slats form the side sections of the tent, while the shorter ones are floor slats. Tip: Even the most fearless explorers can injure themselves! For this reason, choose a smooth, soft wood to prevent injuries.

    In the first step, you swap the machete for a cordless drill driver such as the PSR 14,4 LI-2: Using a Forstner bit, drill a hole with a diameter of 2.2 cm in all four side slats at a height of 1.10 m (alternatively, you can also have the slats pre-drilled at the DIY store). Then place the slats on top of each other in pairs and attach them to both ends of the rod. Important: The rod must be securely fitted so that the tent does not collapse.

    Now connect the two inner side slats at the bottom to the shorter floor slat (1.05 m). For the externally attached side slats, use the longer floor slat (1.10 m). Fit the side and floor slats together with two wood screws each. This enables the tent to be folded flat for storage.

    Cutting the fabric to size

    Desert camouflage, white elephants or colourful jungle foliage? Dreams of great adventures will be better under appropriate fabrics! In step two, cut your chosen cloth to the size of the frame, leaving approx. 10 cm extra. You can do this quickly and precisely with the Cutter adapter for the IXO V cordless screwdriver. Tip: Choose a sturdy, non-slip fabric!

    Putting up the tent

    The tent is folded open by pulling out the floor slats to the desired size of the entrance. Do mum and dad want to come in as well? Then the door can be left a bit more open!

    Lay the cut fabric over the rod of the folded-open tent and pull it straight. Fold the bottom ends inwards around the floor slats.

    Stapling the fabric

    Staple the folded-over fabric in place on the inside of the floor slats. This can be done with the PTK 14 EDT electric tacker. For more stability, you can also staple the fabric to the side slats.

    Now you can say: Tent up, provisions packed, and we’re off on safari!
