Directly after purchase
1. Choose the right tent pegs
Important: Different camping grounds require different pegs (plastic for clay; metal
for rocky; wood for sand). Your Eureka! tent contains 1 type of top quality pegs for
general usage. To ensure secure setup of your tent, when you expect to camp on
different grounds during your trip(s), please buy the appropriate pegs at your dealer’s
in advance.
2. Do a trial-set up of your tent.
Please set up your tent prior to your first trip to ensure you are familiar with the
setup and the tent is in proper condition.
Tent set-up instructions
Important: Inspect the chosen site and clear all sharp and/or protruding objects that
can damage the tent floor. Be sure the site will offer proper drainage of rainwater
away from the tent. When choosing a site try to pitch the tent in a shaded area.
1. Unroll the tent and spread out the fly on the ground.
2. Assemble the shock-corded pole segments ensuring the inserts are fully
connected to avoid pole damage.
3. Slide the longer pole through the middle pole sleeve. Repeat using the
shorter poles in the other sleeves (always push through sleeves as pulling
can separate the connections, resulting in breakage when the pole is
flexed.) The tent is now flat with the poles in their sleeves.
4. Insert the pole tips into the grommets on one of the sides. Move to the
opposite side, flex the poles forming hoops, and insert the pole tips into
their grommets. The tent is still flat but all hoops are now assembled.
5. Stake out the tent at the corners of the sleeping end with 2 pegs.
Lift the tent hoops and stretch them apart. Stake the tent with
another 2 pegs at the opposite end. The tent is now up.
6. Secure the tent with a peg at each pole location and (adjust tension
at all buckle locations). Stake out the guy lines to stabilize the tent
in windy conditions.
Tent care
We strongly advise you to read the Eureka! Owner’s manual before first
Floor protection: We recommend the use of a thin groundsheet or floor
saver with any tent for added protection from abrasion. The floor saver
should be about 10cm. (4 inches) from the tent edge to avoid the
possibility of channelling water beneath the tent.
Damaging substances: Fuels
can damage tents as can DEET found in
many insect repellents.
Exposure to sun: The sun’s UV rays can be harmful
even with technical
advances in fabrics. Prolonged exposure could result in fading and
possibly fabric disintegration. Do not leave a tent up longer than
Cleaning: Clean tent fabric, poles and zippers with lukewarm, clean
water after every use. Never use detergents, washing machines or
dryers (also see warranty leaflet).
Tent storage: It is important that you store the tent in a dry and cool
condition. If you put the tent away in the carry bag while it is wet, even
for a short time, it may become affected by mildew, which can damage
the coating.
Seams: All major seams are factory taped. Over time seams could
experience delamination. Simply clean the seam and apply seam sealer
that can be purchased at most outdoor stores.

How do I get the whitewashed windows of the Sphinx 5+ clear again? They are turned white and unfortunately I can hardly see through them. And what material are the windows made of? PVC with additional plasticizers or otherwise?

Pitch the tent, clean the cloth and let it dry. Apply the impregnation agent on the cloth with a plant sprayer or other spray. It is also possible to use a paint roller or brush. The cloth needs to be fully saturated with the impregnation agent. Also treat the inside of the tent. Thoroughly clean any windows with a moist cloth. Do not let the impregnation agent dry on it. Let the tent cloth fully dry. Repeat the treatment if needed.

Can I repair a tear or hole in the canvas of my tent myself? Verified

There are special pieces of self-adhesive patches of cloth available for synthetic tent canvases. Stick one of these patches on both sides of the hole or tear. For cotton tent canvases or mixed material tent canvases it's best to use patches that can be ironed on. This will require an iron.

The impregnation agent leaves white stains or a white haze on the tent cloth, what can I do about this? Verified

If the agent leaves a white haze or white stains on the tent cloth, this means you have applied more impregnation agent on those areas. This is not harmful and the stains often disappear over time. It is not advisable to use less impregnation agent to prevent stains. The cloth needs to be fully saturated with the impregnation agent to give good results.
