How to Fold a Pop Up Beach Tent
Now that you have all the necessary materials, let’s begin with the folding process.
Step 1: Remove All the Sand and Debris
Before folding the tent, you need to remove all the sand and debris from it. Shake off any sand, and brush off any dirt or debris. This will help keep your tent clean and prevent damage to its fabric.
Step 2: Close All the Windows and Doors
Make sure that all the windows and doors of the tent are closed. This will prevent any sand or debris from getting inside the tent and making it dirty.
Step 3: Flatten the Tent
Next, flatten the tent on the ground. Make sure that it is spread out evenly and there are no wrinkles or folds in the fabric.
Step 4: Fold the Tent in Half
Fold the tent in half lengthwise. Make sure that the corners are lined up with each other. This will create a long, narrow rectangle.
Step 5: Fold the Tent in Half Again
Fold the tent in half again, this time widthwise. Make sure that the corners are lined up with each other. This will create a smaller rectangle.
Step 6: Fold the Tent in Thirds
Fold the tent in thirds, starting from one end. This will create a small, compact bundle.
Step 7: Secure the Bundle
Wrap the tent’s carry bag around the bundle, and secure it with the Velcro straps. If your tent doesn’t come with a carry bag, you can use a bungee cord or a piece of rope to secure the bundle.
