Works great, extremely lightweight, and adds living space to the Duplex and Triplex. Highly recommended!

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 V sewn on so that you can adjust your guy line.

Trekking Pole Cup not needed

Trekking Pole Cup not needed for my Plex Solo tent. I hiked 1-1/2 months without needing it……..

Pole cup

This thing is a game changer for tall people. I am 6’1 and use it on both my plex solo and duplex tents which creates way more room than needed. I swapped out the cord for the 1.3mm line shortened a few lines installed these cups and dropped the weight of the plex solo to 12.8 ounces.

I was hammock Camping near Taos Ski Valley. A long hard rain came in while we were looking for a spot to camp. These trekking pole caps saved my cork trekking pole handles from a night buried in the mud. So easy to use and weigh nothing at all!

I was't sure I needed these on my Duplex (and still unsure after using them) so it was a case of "belts and braces". Well made, light ... just what you'd expect from Zpack (and so was the expensive price). Worth it? Let's hope so!
