The Tex Sport Adjustable Tent Pole comes in handy to set up tarps and awnings. Adjust it from 32 inches to a full 8 feet and lock it in place at the desired height using the friction lock. The pole woks with grommets and any tarp or camping material. The pole is made from sturdy 3/4 inch galvanized steel and durable. Use it to build shelters out of tarps or footprints and to prop up that door entrance for shade and weather protection.
