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.
Simply trim the cords if needed to fit your camper, One kit restores both bed ends, or services one camper. Easy to install, and a quick upgrade for "tired" canvas boot ends.
Start by installing one shock cord hook to one end of the cord. Now 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. When you have reached the opposite side, it's time to cut and install the last hook. Pull the cord so it has some resistance to it. You will want the cord to be taught when you attach to the lashing hook. Pull a bit of tension, measure the distance to where the hook will attach to the hook, and cut the remaining cord. Now attach the last shock cord hook.
Installation tip :
Clean up the ends of the cords of any loose threads before installing the hooks. You can even remove a bit of the thread material from the cord to make installation easier. A flame will melt the cord ends after they have been trimmed. A large pair of channel locks is recommended to snap the barrel onto the hook.
