Shock Cord Kit
This kit comes with two sections of the largest shock cord, 4 hooks and 4 cord barrels. It will fit the largest and the smallest Coleman or Fleetwood pop up campers.
Both cords measure 20 feet. This kits services both beds, or one camper. This kit has been designed to offer and easier replacement for the old shock cord. The cord diameter of this product is a bit smaller than the original cord, making installation easier. The strength of the product is also equal or greater than the originals.
One kit restores both bed ends, or services one camper. Easy to install, and a quick upgrade for "tired" canvas boot ends.
There are two ways to install this shock cord kit.
- Attaching the new cord to the old, then pulling the new through while removing the old.
- Using a fishing tool to feed the new cord through.
To use the old cord.
Remove one old shock cord hook. Using a metal clamp such as a hog ring, or a generous amount of high strength tape, securely attach the new cord to the old. Gently pull the old out, while guiding the new shock cord through the boot end.
To use a fishing tool.
Remove one old shock cord hook. Attached the opposite end to a long fish tool, such as a heavy gauged wire or metal coat hanger straightened out. Use the fishing tool to feed the shock cord through the canvas all the way around the bed boot
You will want the cord to be taught when you attach to the lashing hooks. Pull a bit of tension, measure the distance to where the hook will attach to the hook, and cut the remaining cord. Trim the cord ends to the proper length, and attach the hooks. A large pair of channel locks is recommended to snap the barrel onto the shock cord hooks.
