Becket Lacing Window and End Sections
At this point, lacing together of window/door sections, end sections, and tent fly 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 tent fabric.
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.
1. Place becket side (1) eave grommet over eave spindles (2).
2. Identify first becket lace (3) and becket grommet (4) near the ridge.
3. Insert the first becket lace (3) through first becket grommet (4) and second becket lace (5) through
second becket grommet (6).
4. Insert second becket lace (5) through the loop of first becket lace (3).
5. Pull second becket lace (5) tight away from ridge.
6. Insert third becket lace (7) through grommet (8) and through loop of second becket lace (5).
7. Pull third becket lace (7) tight away from the ridge.
8. Continue lacing and close hook and pile weather flap (9) until reaching the last becket lace (10).
Ensure weather flap fabric is slid under the ridge extender brace.
9. Place remaining window and end section grommets over eave spindles.
10. Upon reaching last becket lace (10) at eave, insert next-to-last becket face (11) through loop of last
11. Pull the next-to-last becket lace (11) back towards the ridge and tie off with half-hitch knot.
12. Complete lacing all window and end sections up to eave.
13. Identify the eave extenders (12). Place eave extenders on eave spindle (2) with brace towards ridge.
14. Align holes on spindle (2) and eave extender (12) and insert the hitch clip pin (13) ensuring it secures
both components. Do not leave any beckets below the eave at this time.
