Question

Can this be set up by one person, senior but fairly strong

answer 1
Yes. I was able to pull the legs out by just going around and around for a bit. Then I got into the middle of the dome area, got down on one knee and held the frame above my head slowly, which caused the roof frame to open fully. Then (while the legs are still only 4' tall and not yet extended) I started putting the roof on starting with the side facing the direction of the wind. After the roof was on I extended the legs, one at a time (criss-crossing) until they were all fully extended. The rest was fairly easy. I almost asked a complete stranger for help, but I am glad I didn't. I had no problem putting it up on my own. Also, it goes up slowly the first time you assemble it, but I am sure it assembles much more quickly after a bit of practice.

answer 2
I needed two people to pull the framing apart to open it, to form the perimeter. Perhaps one person could do it if that person found something to hook an opposite leg of the frame on [or tie it to], so one could pull the framing open from the opposite side single-handedly? But, whatever you hooked it on would have to remain stationary, resisting your pulling, so the framing opens up.

The other difficulty was getting the canopy over the dome, once it was partially set up. I needed the help of another person to do that--the dome was too high. I haven't tried it, but if the canopy dome was put on before the frame was lifted very high, perhaps one person could do it?

Other than those two aspects of the process, I found the rest easy for one person to accomplish.

Question

Does it require lines attached for set up, or is it free standing

asked 2 years ago
By

on Coleman 12-by-10-foot Hex Instant Screened Canopy/Gazebo

answer 1
It is free standing. But, it has a line from each upper corner that you can attach to a stake in the ground. Each vertical pole also has about a 2 X 3 inch flat piece of metal ["foot"] with a hole in it, that one can use to drive a narrow metal stake through or lay a rock on. Those flat pieces extend inside the structure on the ground.

I've placed mine on a stone patio, close to our house. But, I've put heavy rocks on some of those small "feet" on the poles and I've staked lines from three of the upper corners to our nearby lawn. I hope that is adequate if a strong wind comes up.

We had rain on it. The stone patio floor inside it showed a little moisture as much as 6 inches in from the screen, but that only appeared on some sides of it. And the screening got a little wet, particularly near the bottom. But, that was it. We didn't consider that a problem at all. The table and other items inside were fine.

There are hooks that attach to the frame once it is up and expanded. The bottom flap falls to the ground and flips out from the shelter. There are attachments at the bottom of each upright. We were camping with lots of flies and it kept them out.

We do have a few ants that get in, and other crawling bugs. It hooks at it pole at the top and bottom. On the bottom there is extra tarp and you could lay rock or log to for sure to keep stuff out.
At the top there is a small gap where once in a blue moon you could get a bee once in awhile, but we haven't gotten but one in the weeks we have been camping, or a fly here or there from the top gap.
We like it so much we just got a second one.

Yes if tied down properly. However, not during extremely windy conditions. The instructions state " This product is not intended to be used during heavy rain, wind, hail, snow or other inclement weather." And "The shelter top, screen, and sun wall (if included) should be carefully removed during windy conditions to avoid damage to product or personal injury."
