Available for sale by clicking here:
1) Assembling Tent Canopy

If you buy the canopy tent, you get 1) the tent, 2) the canopy with velcro straps and ropes for securing, 3) a package of 8 stainless steel stakes, a carrying bag, and an instruction sheet. The side wall is sold separately as you see at the top.
SPECIFICATIONS OF THE TENT:
o Tent: 10' x 10'
o Bag with tent and canopy: 48" x 9" x 7.5"
o Maximum height from ground to top center is 111" or 9'3"
o 77" from the ground to the bottom of the canopy flap at the highest height setting
o There are 3 height settings
o Bag with tent and canopy weighs 36 lbs
The side wall can install on any side of the tent. It attaches with elastic bands consisting of a hook and d-loop. There are 3 bands on each side that attach to the legs and there are 2 bands on the top ends that attach to the "accordion" part of the frame (for a total of 8 elastic bands). There are also 2 plastic clips on the top towards the middle that quickly connect to the "accordion" part of the frame.
That's kind of a long-winded description. In short, it's really quick and easy to attach and the bands/clips hold it securely. I absolutely love having the side wall, particularly when it's windy or at the end of an evening when the sun is at a sharp angle. If you want a custom print canopy tent, Leader Accessories does offer that.
Assembling and disassembling the canopy tent is easy, but if you set it up alone it takes putting it up once or twice to learn how to shave a couple minutes. It doesn't take long and it's not hard to do alone, but it does certainly save time having another helper. I hope the video shows it's not absolutely necessary to have another helper though.
The canopy secures to the frame with interior Velcro straps (2 per side). It also secures to the outside with Velcro on each pole. It does a nice job of blocking the sun. Finally, there are ropes that you can stake to the ground if you need added support. If you set this up on pavement, I recommend using sand bags or other weights on the feet. If you install it on grass/dirt, you can clearly use the stakes.
The nylon canopy is waterproof and fits the tent just right. The carrying bag is well made as well. It's nice for storing or transporting the tent. I like that the bag zips from bottom to top rather than just around the top like some bags. This makes it easier to put the tent and canopy in the bag.
Overall, this is a great canopy tent. You aren't going to be able to set this on the deck, for instance, and leave it there year-round. However, for a portable canopy tent for parties, fairs, festivals, sporting events, or any number of things this tent works well!
