Becket Lacing Window and End Sections
At this point, lacing together of window and end sections may be accomplished simultaneously. Begin all
lacing from the ridge line and work towards the eave. Becket lacing procedure is the same throughout
the erection process and is accomplished as follows:
Do not step on tent components. Material may be torn and dirt ground into material.
For easier lacing, place eave grommets with becket laces over eave
spindles first, to provide fabric tension, then overlap adjoining window
section and end section eave grommet without laces.
Place becket side eave grommet (1) over eave spindles (2).
Identify first becket lace (3) and becket grommet (4) near the ridge.
Insert the first becket lace (3) through first becket grommet (4) and second becket lace (5) through
second becket grommet (6).
Insert second becket lace (5) through the loop of first becket lace (3).
Pull second becket lace (5) tight away from ridge.
Insert third becket lace (7) through grommet (8) and through loop of second becket lace (5).
Pull third becket lace (7) tight away from the ridge.
