Assembling The Event Shelter Deluxe


  • Remove the shelter from the bag and assemble the steel poles.
  • Lay the flysheet flat and pass the colour-coded poles through the mash sleeves.
  • Begin with the red poles and click the poles into the try knuckles.
  • Insert the yellow poles into the yellow coded mash sleeves and click it into the central hub.
  • Then, for the last pole, drop the shelter down, click into place and lift back up.
  • Insert the poles into the base hubs, clip the flysheets into the poles and put the hook into the base, then tighten.
  • Use the webbing to square the Deluxe shelter, when squared peg the base hubs and remove the webbing.
  • Peg out the bottom of the flysheet 45 degrees from the guideline.

  • Clip and buckle the flysheet along the leg sections.
  • Then, secure the pegs in the holes of the base hubs.

How To Pack Away

Make sure all your Velcro straps are undone and your pegs are out of the ground. Remove and fold up the flysheet, disconnect the side poles, corner poles and roof poles.

Once every side is disconnected, place the poles, flysheet and pegs into the carry bag.

A Coleman gazebo has plenty of shade, space and is one of the simplest gazebos to erect.
