How to Fold Up a Pop Up Tent
Documentation Download Documentation Download Documentation A surprising number of individuals utilize pop-up tents as quick and simple shelters, but discover that folding the tent is an unanticipated headache. Folding the tent poles together and then over each other is the best method for storing it. Using this method, you can collapse the tent into a circle that can be stored in a bag until you need it again. With a little understanding of tent folding procedures, you’ll be able to store your tent until you need it again.
- 1 Before you begin folding the tent, clean it well. In most cases, shaking out dirt, sand, and pine needles is all that’s required of you. Despite the fact that you can try again later, the debris may become lodged in the tent folds. Tip the tent to the side to allow the debris to drain. When you have the opportunity, thoroughly clean the tent using a little amount of powdered laundry detergent and a damp towel.
- Never put away a wet tent, otherwise you’ll wind up with mold on your hands
- 2Fold the top two poles together to form a triangle. Place yourself next to the tent. The poles are the ridges on top of the tent to your left and right that go parallel to the ground. Extend your arms to grab both sides and bring them together at the same time. Advertisement
- s3 Fold the bottom two poles together to form a triangle. The tent’s outside boundaries are formed by the bottom poles, which now protrude to the left and right of the tent’s center pole. You’ll have to find a way to get to both of them. Fold one of the bottom poles up and over one of the top poles to create a v-shape. Repeat the process with the other bottom pole to ensure that all four poles are held together.
- 4Turn the tent so that it is on its side. The folded tent has the appearance of a large taco. Continue to hang on to the four tent poles as you turn the tent on its side to the other side. Position the taco so that the open side of the taco form is flush with the ground
- 5 Fold the top poles over to the back of your hand. You’ll have to stretch your hands out once more to complete the task. Reach out over the highest portion of the tent while holding the four poles together. Grab the rear of the taco form with one hand and pull it down to the other with the other. Wrestle the tent to the ground in order to flatten it, and then repeat the process.
- You won’t require more than a minimal amount of force to draw the tent down because of the lightweight nature of the poles. The poles are also flexible, making it unlikely that they would break.
- 6Put the tent parts together by sliding them together. If you fold the tent correctly, it will seem as two circles of cloth that are side-by-side in shape. Bring one over the other to make it easier to pack your tent
- And 7 Place the tent in a bag and press down to seal it. In order to keep a strong grasp on the poles, pop ups are intended to rebound back into the shape of a tent after being smashed. You may use your hands and knees to press down on it to eliminate any remaining air that is keeping it from resting completely flat. After that, place the tent in its bag and store it until your next adventure arrives. Advertisement
- 1 Before folding the tent, shake it to remove any particles. Before you put the tent away, make sure it’s completely clean. Turn it over and shake off any dirt or sand that has become trapped within. With a little water and a hose or a towel, you can clean the tent up well after that. In the event that you don’t have time to deal with severe stains right away, you may pack up the tent and clean it at home.
- When washing away difficult stains, a small amount of powdered detergent might be beneficial.
- 2 Grab the tent’s sides with both hands. Position yourself in front of the tent’s entrance. The tent pole that runs from side to side above the entrance is the one that is closest to you. Grab hold of both edges of the tent with both hands. Even if the door has a cover on it, leave the door open.
- Beach tents are often smaller in size than conventional tents, and they do not have poles running across the width of the tent as do regular tents. In addition, if you’re still having difficulties folding any other tent, you may try this method.
- As a rule, beach tents are smaller than conventional tents, and they do not have poles that span the entire width of the structure. When folding any other tent, you may also try this method if you are still having problems.
- Because the poles are extremely flexible, there is no need to be concerned about them breaking.
- 6Disassemble the tent and put it away. Alternatively, if the tent came with an elastic band, you may use it to keep it in place. Place the tent in its carrying bag. Any poles that are protruding out should be tucked in, and the bag should be closed until you are ready to use the tent again. Advertisement

We also provide some helpful folding hints and a video to make learning the process that much easier! Whether you’re looking for the fundamentals of folding a pop-up camping tent, a play tent, or a beach pop-up tent, we’ve developed a list of general guidelines to follow to assist you in your endeavor.
Keep in mind that the directions provided below may not be applicable to your specific tent. However, because most pop-up tents fold in a similar manner, even if your tent is different from other conventional tents, you should be able to get a basic sense of what to do from our instructions.
- It is not a good idea to fold a filthy tent since it might cause harm to the material during storage and attract insects. Consequently, be sure to clean up any waste and sweep off any dirt or debris. You may completely clean the tent by using a damp sponge or moist cloth soaked in water and mild soap to remove stains or mud splashes from the surface. Try to do so before the stains or mud have had a chance to completely dry, as you will be able to wash them more easily when they are still wet. Alternatively, if your tent is in desperate need of a thorough cleaning, consult our tutorial on how to clean a tent for our specific step-by-step procedure
- Allowing the tent to dry and air out is recommended prior to packing it up. When you fold a damp tent, you risk causing damage and mold growth. As long as it is not filthy or soaked, you should at the very least allow it to air out for an hour before packing it up.
- Untether the tent: You will not be able to begin folding the tent until the tent has been untethered. Make sure you pull out all of the metal stakes that hold your tent to the ground before you begin packing it up. After removing the stakes, wash and dry them thoroughly before storing them in your tent bag.
- Remove the tarp: If your tent is equipped with a tarp or secondary covering for sun and rain protection, remove it, fold it, and place it in the bag with the rest of your belongings.
Important: It is critical that you follow the washing and drying instructions, especially if you are not planning to use your tent for an extended period of time. If you don’t follow these instructions, you’ll most likely wind up with a rotting tent. Yikes! Following the completion of all of the pre-folding measures, you can begin folding the pop-up tent in its entirety. For even more thorough preparation, let’s watch a brief take-down video and then walk through each step together.

Step 1: Grab the two top points of the tent and bring them together.
Posture yourself on the side of the tent that is perpendicular to the tent door in order to be in the proper position for the task at hand. Then you’ll want to find the two high arches that will serve as the tent’s highest point. One hand should be used to grasp the two points and bring them together.
Step 2: Grab the back end of your tent and fold it to meet the middle.
Posture yourself on the side of the tent that is perpendicular to the tent door in order to be in the proper position for the task. Place two large arches at the top of the tent, which will serve as the tent’s highest point, and mark their locations. Take hold of the two points and pull them together with one finger.
Step 3: Bring the front arch together to meet the other points.
It is just as important to have your tent door open to allow for air circulation as it is to have an accessible entry point while folding your tent up to allow any trapped air to escape. Grab the top of the arch above the entrance with your free hand and hold it in place. Once this is done, fold the front of the tent inwards towards the remainder of the tent. When you’re finished, your pop-up tent should have the shape of a taco on it.
Step 4: Stand your tent upright and fold it inwards.
Turn your tent upwards with one hand while retaining a tight grasp on the pole. In the next step, use your free hand to gently lower the tent’s highest point all the way down to the ground. During this time, the tent should begin to shut in on itself, while the arches in your other hand should stay on the outside.
Step 5: Twist the tent to form two circles, then fold them over each other.
After folding the tent downwards, twist it slightly so that the arches form two circles next to each other, resembling the sign for endless repetition. Fold one circle over the other, as if you were closing a folder, and align the edges so that you can fold the circles as neatly as possible when you are through.
Step 6: Secure the tent if it has such features.
In the event that your pop-up tent is one of the numerous kinds that has secure attachments to prevent it from springing open, you may take use of that feature right away.
If your tent does not have any of these qualities, make sure to hang on to it tightly until you have it stowed where you will use it.
Step 7: Place the tent back into its bag.
Carefully place your folded tent inside the tent bag that came with your tent. The only way to tell whether you have folded it securely enough is if it goes easily into its case. What is the final precaution? Bags can be closed with a zip, a cinch, or a seal. It’s important to remember that even the greatest pop-up tents may be challenging to take down. And while folding your tent may not be as simple as setting it up, with these tips and a little practice, you will be able to learn to fold it back down in no time.

How to Fold Pop Up Tent
Before we get started with the tutorial, I’d want to point out a few of things. There are various different kinds of pop-up tents that you may come across. There are several types of tents available, including a camping tent, a dome tent, a sun shelter, a beach shelter, a portable tent, and a shower tent. All of these tents are available in a variety of sizes and somewhat varying forms. Most pop-up tents may be folded in the same manner, however the method of folding varies from one tent to the next.
If it is all clear, you and I can dive straight into the guide right now!
Step 1 – Prepare the tent for folding
Clean up the tent before you fold it up and store it away. In particular, if the tent sits on a sandy or muddy area, it can be easy for dirt to attach itself to the fabric, just like water, insects, germs, and other microorganisms did previously. As a result, you must clean the tent before putting it away for the season. If at all possible, wash the tent and allow it to dry naturally. If there is no chance of that happening, you can wipe or towel the area to remove any debris that may have accumulated there.
You should also inspect the area to determine if there are any stakes or extra layers that you need to pull out.
Step 2 – Start folding the tent
Unziping the tent’s door or two doors should be the first thing you do after setting up your tent. This will let the air from the interior of the tent to escape, making it easier for you to fold the tent when you are through. After that, you may fold the tent to form an oval shape using your hands. Take hold of the tent’s back, since you will be starting your journey from there. Bring the rear pole to the center pole, and then put it back where it belongs. If you find it difficult to do so, you can use one hand to grip the rear pole while the other hand grabs a hold of the center pole to make it easier.
The two poles should be held together in one hand in order to maintain the oval shape at the end. If there is any lingering air in the tent, make sure to get it out as soon as possible after closing it.
Step 3 – Lift and rotate the tent
When you have the tent poles in your hands, it should be quite simple to hoist the tent. It would be beneficial if you placed it on the side, so that it stands vertically. Make certain that you have a tight grasp on the tent throughout the day.
Step 4 – Fold and slide the rings
You should then reach your hand towards the top of the tent and draw it as near as you possibly can to your feed once you have it in a vertical position. Because it will be on the ground, it should be easier to manage the folded tent at this point in the process. Next, you should examine the two circles that are part of thetent frame to ensure that they are not broken. They should be overlapping at all times. It is recommended that you stack the rings on top of one another. After you’ve finished, the tent will take on the shape of a huge circle.
Step 5 – Bag the tent
Using an elastic band, which should be included with your tent, you can keep the tent in a folded position. This will make it much easier for you to pack up the tent and store it in the bag. After you’ve completed these steps, your tent will be ready to be packed into your car or bag.

Then take off all of your excess layers, as well as any items that may have been in them.
- Turn the tent to one side after you’ve got the top poles in your hands.

You could even discover that there is enough room in there to store your bags as well! The only difference between folding a conventional pop-up tent and folding a large pop-up tent is that you may want assistance with the latter.

Make a thorough cleaning of the tent, fold it from the rear to the front, hoist it and rotate it to the left side, then push it to the ground and secure it with a stake. That is all there is to it. After you have completed all of this, you can simply put the tent into its bag and store it away.

The following are basic recommendations, and there’s always the possibility that they won’t be applicable to the specific style of tent you’re building.
The table id is incorrect.
How to Fold Pop Up Tents
Step one is to thoroughly clean the tent. Using a broom or brush, remove any dirt or debris from the tent’s interior. If the tent has been discolored or muddied, clean it with a damp sponge or moist cloth dipped in water and mild soap to remove the stains. Step 2: Allow the tent to dry or air out. Allow the tent to dry completely before packing it up, especially if it has been rained on or if it has been damp from the cleaning you have done. After an hour of airing out, if it’s not dirty or damp, put it back in its place before packing it away.
- Step 3: Untether the tent from its moorings.
- If your tent comes with a tarp or secondary covering for sun and rain protection, remove it from the tent, fold it up, and place it in the bag with the rest of your belongings.
- If you need to pack fast, skip to steps 3 and 4 and skip the rest of the instructions.
- The cleaning and drying procedures are essential, especially if it will be a long time before you will be able to use the tent again.
- This is done to ensure that air can escape from the tent as you fold it back into its compact shape in the following steps.
- Place yourselves on either side of the tent.
One hand should be used to hold them.
Grab those as well, and move them in the direction of the two arches that you are currently holding together.
Step 3: Form a figure of eight with the ring.
The result is a letter D with an arch on one side and a flat side on the other, which can be either an upright letter D or a reverse letter D, depending on your handedness.
Make careful to maintain a strong grasp on the arched portion of the body at all times.
After that, you’re left with two circles that are flat on the ground or the figure 8.
The aim is to bring all of the circles together into a single circle starting from the figure eight position.
After that, align the edges.
Utilize the knot or Velcro lock mechanism that came with your tent if it is provided. And then close the tent by sliding it back into its designated holder and zip it up. Your tent is now ready for storage and preparation for your next excursion.
Step 1: Choose an oval or a circle as your form. Place yourself at the entrance to the beach tent. Grab the edges of the front arch with both hands. One side should be pushed towards the center. The tent will begin to close in on itself as you go in this manner. As you raise the second side up on top of it, keep one side firmly planted on the ground. This left-over-right or right-over-left movement should result in a large or oval circle at the end of the movement. Step 2: Form it into a figure-eight configuration.
- Apply pressure to the upper edge of the ring.
- Fix the figurine to the ground with a stake.
- The next step is to join the two circles that are next to one another to form a mini-circle.
- As you go through this process, make certain that you retain all of the important elements.
