That’s why a little, inexpensive shock-cord repair kit comes in handy on your campouts or river trips.
I like gear. I’m a gear nut. But I’m not good with repairs. I thought I would have to send the poles to the company for repairs. That would put the sun shade out of use for who knows how long?
So when I easily repaired the shock cords on the poles of my Kelty Sun Shade with a repair kit I found at Boise Army Navy, you know it has to be easy.
I used Texsport Shock Cord Repair Kit, which costs $3.97. It took about 20 minutes.
