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 Shake out any particles before folding the tent. Before putting the tent away, clean it well. 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.
- 2. Hold onto the tent’s edges. Position yourself so that you are facing the tent’s front door. The tent pole that runs from side to side above the entrance is the one that is closest to the tent and is the longest. Squeeze the tent’s sides together with both hands. If the door has a cover on it, leave it open.
- 3Fold the tent’s sides together to form a square. The tent should be pulled in one direction toward the center, then pushed flat on the ground. While you’re holding it down, move the other side across and place it on top. It should now be in the shape of an oval
- 4 Turn the tent on its side and press it down to make it as flat as possible. Turn the tent so that it is resting on its side. Push down on the middle of this edge with your fingers. As you flatten the tent, it will take on the shape of a figure-8. If you want to guide the tent to the ground, you can put one hand on the side of the tent. Fold the tent in half so that it is completely enclosed. Keep your hands on the tent! If you release go, it will return to its original shape. The tent should be picked up from one side and then carried over to the other side. This results in the tent collapsing into a circle. It’s a good idea to keep one leg on the tent while doing this to keep your grasp from slipping.
- 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

Pop-up tents are notoriously naughty, as we all know. You can set them up in seconds, but every time you try to fold one back up, it either fires out again or doesn’t fit back into the bag because it was folded improperly, giving you unending stress when packing up your camping goods. Now you don’t have to suffer anymore! You will learn how to fold your pop up tent in a few simple steps with the help of this instruction.
Folding Your Pop Up Tent: Step By Step Guide
This tutorial is based on our Malawi tent, which has design elements that are comparable to those seen in traditional pop-up tents.
Step 1: Unzip the door
Unzip the front entrance of your tent from the inside by walking to the front of it. This allows any trapped air to exit the tent, making it simpler to compress and fold later down the road. You may also want to consider giving the tent a quick clean down at this point to ensure that it isn’t soiled for the next time you use it.
Step 2: Fold from back to front
Take hold of the center of the rear base pole and proceed to fold it upwards until you reach the top of the pole. Take both of them in one hand and hold them together. Then, while still holding the two poles in place, reach over and grasp the front base pole, pulling it upright until it meets the other poles you’re presently holding, bringing all of the poles together in one hand for easy storage.
Step 3: Lift the tent and rotate
Lift the tent and turn it on its side so that it stands vertically, holding the tent with one hand while the other holds the tent in place.
Step 4: Pull down
Grab the top section of the tent with your free hand and pull it down towards your feet.
Step 5: Slide rings
The tent frame should be slightly overlapping two circles now that you’ve folded it towards the soles of your feet, as seen in the image below. Slide one ring beneath the other, then press down on the tent to allow any residual air to escape through the opening. The tent should now be folded in half so that it forms a circle.
Step 6: Bag it up
Take any slack elastic straps and draw them across the folded tent, allowing you to stow the tent away in its accompanying bag when you’ve completed this step. That’s all there is to it! Your tent should be completely folded and ready to depart at this point.

They’re small and lightweight, making them perfect for use on the beach, where they provide shade from the breeze and a place to rest away from the sun. It should be noted, however, that while setting up the beach pop up tents is simple, taking them down again requires some skill. Here’s a simple step-by-step explanation on how to fold a pop-up beach tent for your convenience.
Folding up a Pop Up Beach Tent – Three Key Shapes to Make
Make sure the tent opening is facing you and that you hold onto the edges of the tent entrance. Fold the left side of the tent all the way down to the ground, then do the same with the right side, bringing it all the way down on top. Hold them together, and your tent should take on the shape of an oval.
Step two: Figure of eight
Placing the tent on its side and applying pressure to the centre will cause the tent to fold into a figure of eight. Once you’ve achieved this position, hold your weight in the centre of the tent so that it doesn’t shift.
Step three: Circle
To make a circle, take one end of the figure of eight and fold it over (the poles are quite flexible, so don’t be concerned about it breaking). Make sure the tent is in a perfect circle by holding it in place and pulling the elastic band around to hold it all together with your hands (if any poles are sticking out around the edges, simply tuck them in, as this will make it easier to put in the bag).
Simply toss in the bag, zip it up, and you’re ready to go to your next location! If you follow these procedures, you should be able to fold your pop-up beach tent in a short amount of time.

How to Fold a Pop Up Tent (Step-By-Step)
Pop-up tents, as the name indicates, are tents that essentially build themselves up. Simply pull them out of their bag and, poof!, you have a completely functional shelter on your hands in a matter of seconds. Folding a pop-up tent and cramming it back into its bag, on the other hand, is a very other story. Learn how to fold a pop up tent step by step in the video below. 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.
Folding a Pop Up Tent Video
In order for visual learners to fully comprehend the process of folding a pop-up tent, it is helpful to watch someone do it in real life. Here’s an illustration utilizing the well-known Ayamya Pop-up tent. Instructions on how to take down an AYAMAYA pop-up tent After that, let’s walk through the process of taking down a pop-up tent. Despite the fact that these are generic instructions, the process is the same or quite comparable for the majority of pop-up tent models. We recommend that you consult the owner’s handbook of your tent for detailed step-by-step instructions.
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.
Grab the smaller arch towards the rear of your tent that is further toward the top with your free hand. Pull that arch across to meet the two points that your one hand is currently holding together with its other hand. Once the three ends have come together, move them all into one hand.
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.

As a result, no matter what style of tent you wind up purchasing, you will be familiar with how to fold it.
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.
Before folding the tent, check to see that it is completely dry. You should also inspect the area to determine if there are any stakes or extra layers that you need to pull out. After you have completed the previous steps, you can go to the following stage.
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 into an oval form. Take hold of the tent’s rear because you will be starting from there. Bring the rear pole to the center pole, and then put it back where it belongs. You may also use one hand to grasp the rear pole and the other hand to grab a grip of the central pole if you find it difficult to do so.
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.
How to Fold a Pop-up Tent into A Circle?
Most pop-up tents can be folded into a circle because of the way they are designed. When planning a camping vacation, pop-up tents are a terrific option to have on hand in case you want to retire for the night. It only takes a minute to get them up and running! It’s necessary to fold your tent after spending the night inside, and I propose that you fold it into a circle. To accomplish this, begin by thoroughly washing and air drying the tent. 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.
Next, the tent would be sealed with a rope or something similar.
If your tent is circular in form, you will likely find zippers around the poles that may be zipped together to close the tent.
As a result, if your tent is equipped with zippers, use them to close it. Make certain that you are not grasping onto the fabric with the zipper because this might cause harm to it. Take special care when packaging the package!
How Do You Fold A Big Pop-Up Tent?
If you want to go camping with a large group of people, larger pop-up tents are the best option. These tents offer enough area to accommodate four or six people to sleep comfortably. 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. If you are having difficulty folding your tent, do not hesitate to ask for assistance from your friends or another camper.
That is all there is to it.
How To Fold A 4 Sided Pop-Up Tent?
4-sided pop-up tents are often a little bigger in size than normal pop-up tents of this type. While folding this sort of tent may prove more challenging, it is not impossible! This sort of tent can have two doors, however it is most commonly found with only one. When you intend on folding it, make sure to keep the door open to ensure that nothing gets stuck within. Due to the fact that this is a four-sided tent, it will have four poles. When folding it, you should grip the four poles together and allow all of the air to escape while continuing to hold on to the object.
It is possible that you may have to pull, but it should not be too difficult.
After that, you may either bag your tent or leave it in its current state and store it immediately.
Continue to keep the tent in this manner until you need to use it again!
In conclusion, this article has covered all of the information you need to know about pop-up tents, including what they are and how to fold them. Remember to thoroughly clean and dry the tent before storing it away for the season.

ONE WAY TO FOLD OUT ALL POP UP TENTS
Although a pop-up tent is simple to set up, it will pose a significant difficulty if the buyer is unable to fold it down. If it is unfurled, it will be too large to transport with you. This means that a pop-up tent will be considered a disposable tent. As a result of reading this post, I am confident that you will be able to fold a variety of different pop up tents when you have finished. I hope you find this information useful. In general, there are two methods to fold out a pop-up tent: vertically and horizontally.
I’ll demonstrate the reverse bridge approach with four distinct pop up tents in the next section.
Let’s get this party started.
Typical Pop up dome tent
Typical The most frequent yet most simple type of dome tent is the pop-up dome tent, which has one or two upright poles and one horizontal pole. The door can be on either the long or short side, and there are one or two ventilations on either the side or the back. Some of them have additional roof ventilation, some of them have additional sun shade (pop-up tent with sun shade), and some of them have two layers in construction (two layers pop up tent). However, regardless of how many doors/ventilations there are, where they are positioned, or with any other characteristics, the essential aspect of this pop up tent with both horizontal and upright poles is that it is portable (s).
Pay attention to the construction of this tent and try to fold it into a shape that resembles a “reversed bridge.” I’ve drawn diagrams to demonstrate the procedures.
Connect the four ends of the rope together.
Let’s stop here for the standard pop up dome tent and go on to other forms of pop up tents because the procedures that follow are same for all of the other types of pop up tents.
Simplified typical pop up tent
In addition, there is another pop up dome tent that is a reduced version of the normal pop up tent, with the horizontal pole having been eliminated. There may be features that are similar to those of a typical pop up dome tent, such as how many doors/ventilations there are, where they are located, or whether or not there is an additional sun shade, but the most important feature is that there is only an upright pole for this type of pop up tent, and no horizontal pole. This type of pop up tent is shown in the photo below.
The illustration below illustrates how to fold it out. The difference between this and a regular pop up dome tent is that you just need to tie the middle of the upright poles together, as seen in the illustration below.
Pop up beach tent
The pop up beach tent is a modified version of the traditional pop up dome tent. Pop up dome tents are often equipped with a door or two; however, when the door of a pop up dome tent is replaced by an opening, the pop up dome tent is transformed into a pop up beach tent. Because people generally sit in the pop up beach tent and do not require it to be used as a sleeping space, the size and shape of the tent are not altered to suit this function. However, the basic structure is the same as that of a standard pop-up dome tent.
Make the beach tent from the bottom up first, then hold the two ends together and link the two ends together with a string.
pop up shower tent
A pop up shower tent is a type of pop up tent construction that is distinct from a pop up dome tent in that it is portable. It is composed of four oval upright panels, each of which has the same form and size as the others, each of which is supported by a spring pole, and a door on one of these four panels; some of the shower tents are equipped with a groundsheet, while others are equipped without. This framework might potentially be utilized for another type of pop-up tent, such as a tent for watching sporting events.
The steps to fold it out are illustrated in the drawings below.
Holding any crest and pushing it to the opposing ridge is the first step.
In the next step, fold one panel over another, such that all of the panels are 2 to 1 overlapped at this point.
It now has the appearance of a “reverse bridge.” The following three phases might then be combined to form a single process: the first, 4 to 2.2nd, 2 to 1.3th, 1 to 1/2 the second We have completed the initial stages for each of the four varieties of pop up tents; now it is time to move on to the next phases.
In the beginning, with your right hand holding the linked end of the tent, spin it 90 degrees to make it stand up, and with your left hand holding the center point of the top circle, move down and fold to the rear, holding this position with your right hand.
These stages are illustrated in the drawings below.
How to Fold a Pop Up Tent
In case you are a camper, you are most likely already aware with the concept of pop-up tents. Setting up a tent on your own might take hours of effort. This is the ultimate method to save you hours of effort. What is a pop-up tent, and how does it work? Pop-up tents are essentially one-time-use tents. In contrast to traditional tents, which might need a significant amount of time and work to set up. In order for it to convert into a complete tent, you must first open it up and wait for it to finish the transformation.

- Before you begin folding your tent, check to see that it is neither damp or soiled. If it is, let it to dry and clean it thoroughly so that you do not wind up with a rotting tent or mold growth. You’ll have to remove the stakes out of the ground and clean them as well at this point. You will now be responsible for folding the tent as you move along. Place yourself somewhere around the tent and keep an eye out for the tent poles. These are the arches on the left and right sides of the tent that form the tip of the structure. Grab hold of them both at the same time and bring them both crashing down Now, reaching towards the bottom poles, fold them up over the top poles in such a way that you are holding all four poles at the same time. At this stage, the tent will have the appearance of a taco
- Turn the tent over so that the open side of the taco is resting on the ground on the other side. As a result, the air will be allowed to escape from within. After you’ve flipped the tent, you’ll need to pull the back of the taco down to your other hand and flatten it against the ground. On the ground, you must slide the two parts together to complete the task. And at this point, the tent may appear to be two circles that are stacked on top of each other. You are now expected to draw one circle over another in a clockwise direction. After that, your tent will be ready to be packed. Lightly press down on the poles to expel any extra air from the system. In order to flatten the tent even further, this will be beneficial. Your tent has been folded, and it is now ready to be stored in your bag.

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. It is possible to wind up with a moldy tent if you neglect these steps. Yikes!
Step 1: Unzip the tent and open the entrance. 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. Step 2: Choose a tortilla or taco form to work with. Place yourselves on either side of the tent. Then, take the two top arches and join them together with your fingers. One hand should be used to hold them. You will see an arch hanging on each side of the room as you go. 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.
Your tent is now ready for storage and preparation for your next excursion.
Place yourself at the entrance to the beach tent.
One side should be pushed towards the center.
As you raise the second side up on top of it, keep one side firmly planted on the ground.
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.
Gently release the grasp on one of the circles’ centre points as you fold one circle into another.
When you’re finished, the mini-circle should be flat and ready to be tucked back into the bag. Utilize any elastic bands or other attachments that came with your tent to keep it in place before putting it back into its carrying container to prevent it from shifting. The table id is incorrect.
