How to Fold Pop Up Beach Tent

Step 1: Shaking out the debris before folding your tent

Your first step toward folding your pop-up beach tent should be shaking out the debris or dirt of your tent. It will increase your tent’s durability. You don’t need to do many things to clean your beach tent. Simply tip it over and then shake loose the trapped sand or dirt.

Step 2: Creating an oval or round shape

Now, in the second step, your task is to make an oval shape of your tent. In order to make an oval shape, you need to hold your tent in a manner so that the opening part of your tent faces you. After that, you need to hold both the entrance sides of your tent. 

Now, you need to fold your tent’s left portion of your tent by pulling it in the direction of the surface. Then repeat this process for the opposite part of your tent which means the right part of your tent. With this, you are supposed to find an oval or round shape. However, if you don’t find any round shape, then you will have to repeat the process.

Step 3: Making an eight

After making an oval shape, put your tent on its side. Then gently apply a little pressure to the midpoint of your tent to make your tent an eight-figure. After achieving the right shape, you have to keep weight in the midpoint of your tent so that it can not make any move.

Step 4: Folding the tent in a circle

In this step, you need to grab any ending part of your eight-figure and then fold it over another one. You may need to apply a little bit of pressure while doing this process. Don’t worry! The tent poles are usually flexible and they will not be breaking with a little pressure. 

After that, hold the tent in its position and put an elastic band around for holding your beach tent together. While doing this process, you need to make sure that your tent is stable and also in the perfect position or circle.

Step 5: Zipping up

I hope you have completed the above-described process. You are almost done. Now give it a check so that if there is any pole sticking out. If you find so, then you will need to tuck them gently. With this, you are done with folding your pop-up beach tent.
