How to set up your Marmot® Halo 4P
Select a flat, level and protected site free from sharp rocks, twigs or other objects that could puncture the floor of your tent. Avoid pitching your tent in a low spot where water may collect if it rains.
Setting up the Tent Body
- Spread the tent out floor side down and loosely stake out the 4 corners of the main tent body using the stake loops.
- Carefully unfold all poles and begin assembling. Make sure all sections are fully joined together. Your pole system is connected with the shock cord system for easy assembly.
- The Halo 4P has 4 poles. There are 2 longer poles, which are identical and symmetrical. There are 2 shorter poles, which are also identical and symmetrical.
- Thread one of the longer poles through one of the pole sleeves. Repeat with the second long pole and other pole sleeve. Once inserted, the poles will make a large X shape, crossing in the middle of the tent. Poles should follow the seams of the tent, and the tips will be directed toward the corners.
- Insert 2 pole tips, one at a time, on one side of the tent into the grommets. Repeat with the pole tips on the opposite side of the tent body.
- With all 4 tips in their respective grommets, the tent will be erect. Connect clips on the tent body to the corresponding pole. The color of the clip webbing will match the color of the pole.
- Locate the black flap with 2 grommets on the sidewall of the tent.
- Place the tip of one of the shorter poles into a grommet on the flap. Use the grommet that is furthest from the direction that the pole is wrapping around the tent body. Wrap the pole around the tent body; this pole should go over the existing pole structure. Place the other tip of the pole into the furthest grommet on the flap on the opposite side of the tent. Repeat with the other shorter pole. The ends these 2 poles cross at the flap and form an X shape.
- Once the tips of the shorter poles are secured in the grommets, connect the clips on the tent body to the corresponding poles.
- If needed, reposition the tent stakes to pull the floor of the tent body taut.
Attaching the Flysheet
- Unfold the flysheet and identify the inside of the fly. The inside is coated and seam tape is visible.
- Locate the 2 red tabs on the fly and the 2 red tabs at the stakeout points on the tent body. Align the 2 sets of red tabs, connect the buckle at 1 of the red tabs to keep the fly correctly positioned, and drape the flysheet over the tent body with the inside facing down.
- The seams of the fly should closely align with the tent poles.
- Locate the reflective guy-line tabs along the seams of the fly. There is Velcro under the tabs that will securely attach the fly to the tent pole structure.
- If necessary, loosen the webbing at the 4 buckles to connect the fly to the tent body.
- Once the 4 buckles are attached, tighten the webbing at the corners until the fly is taut.
- Be sure the fly door is zipped closed before you stake out the vestibules. Use the large loops to stake out the vestibule. Use the adjustable webbing to tighten or release the tension.
