Need a lift? These fabric cups make it easy to prop up the head or foot of your shelter for more space. You can use a trekking pole with the handle up (out of the mud), or a tent pole, or a stick. The cup catches your pole handle, or tent pole tip securely and without any hassle.

32" (81 cm) Tent Poles are just the right length to prop the head or foot of our tents. Or use a 48" (122 cm) pole at the head or foot of a flat tarp.

One end of the pole cup has a loop that you can attach to any tie out with a lark's head knot. The other end has a Lineloc 3 sewn on so that you can adjust your guy line.

Dyneema® Composite Fabric is composed of high strength Dyneema® fiber laminated inside a polyester membrane. It is inherently waterproof and does not require any coatings or DWR treatment. Dyneema® Composite Fabric has very high tensile strength for its weight and does not stretch.

This hybrid version is made from 1.6 oz/sqyd Dyneema® Composite Fabric on the inside, with an extra layer of protective 50 denier polyester on the outside. The outer layer gives it more strength and abrasion resistance, prevents fraying, and gives it a nice solid color.

Puncture Strength: 
7.3 lb (32 N)

Pole cup

Haven't yet use it but just by looking at it the cup should work as advertised.

1.2 mm Z-line cordage slips through the lineloc 3

I didn't notice that this comes with lineloc 3. The 1.2 mm Z-line cordage I use slips through it. I need the smaller lineloc V, but that is not currently an option. It would be great if Zpacks could offer it with lineloc V. Other than that it performs as expected.

Trekking Pole Cup works great on Triplex Tent.

Easy to use and works great at expanding the head room in the Triplex Tent. I used one cup for each side of the tent, and then tied both pullouts per side to the one cup, using one piece of a very lightweight cord going from one pullout, through the trekking pole cup loop with an extra wrap for some friction, and then on to the second pullout.I tied the cord to the pullouts at the Lineloc3 where the webbing was attached so as not to interfere with the LineLoc3 operation in case I ever want to use it with the standard 2mm dyneema cord. A 2mm dyneema cord then goes through the cup’s Lineloc3 to a stake for tensioning. I also bought the 18” carbon fiber poles to use with the cups which works well, but the cup also worked well with a 1/2” diameter stick I picked up which I broke to an 18” length. I will leave the cups permanently attached to the tent. I can still use it without the poles and just run the cup straight to a stake, although it won’t add much head room without a pole.

Added these to the head and foot guy lines on my Duplex for a lift and love the additional head and foot room! Super light and highly recommend.
