SEEDHOUSE SL1, SL2, AND SL3 SET UP INSTRUCTIONS
1. Remove all tent contents from stuff sack.
2. Assemble hub/pole and lay tent body on ground. SL3: also includes a straight, black pole.
3. Seedhouse SL1: the pole has one hub. The 2 shorter poles sections attach to the front of the
tent, while the single pole attaches to the grommet in the center rear. Thread the rear portion
of the pole through the ridge loops first and then insert pole tips into grommets on tent body.
4. Seedhouse SL2: the pole has two hubs. The hub with the longer pole sections corresponds
with the front of the tent while the hub with the shorter pole sections corresponds to the
rear. Insert pole tips into grommets on tent body.
5. Seedhouse SL3: attach the hub/pole to the tent body the same as the SL2. Run the straight
pole over the hub/pole and insert the tips into the grommets on the side of the tent body.
6. Clip up tent body to poles using plastic clips to create freestanding mesh tent body.
7. Drape tent fly over set-up tent body with door zipped closed and clip all buckles on fly
and body together. Cinch tightening straps.
8. Stake out all corners, stake out points and guy lines for optimum stability, space and
Separate 6", large diameter pole segment included for emergency field repair.
If you purchase the optional Big Agnes footprint for any of our models, it will enable you to
pitch a Fast Fly shelter while leaving the tent body behind. The Fast Fly configuration requires
the footprint, tent fly, poles and stakes.
1. Lay the foot print on the ground and stake out.
2. Assemble hub/pole and insert pole tips into grommets on foot print, matching the longer pole
sections from the hub with the front of the tent where the vestibule will be. SL3: also has a single
cross pole that goes over the hub/pole. Insert the pole tips into grommets on side of footprint.
3. Align the cross pole across the middle of the hub/pole frame when you clip all the buckles of the fly
to the footprint. When the fly is staked out tightly, the cross pole will be stabilized under the fly.
4. Drape fly over the poles and clip buckles of fly and footprint together, cinching tightening straps.
5. Stake out all corners and guy lines for optimum stability, space and ventilation.
• Our tents are easy to set up but we suggest you practice once at home before using them for
the first time to avoid late night bickering with tent mates while fumbling around in the dark.
• Before pitching tent, clear campsite of debris that may pierce tent floor.
• Big Agnes tents are all freestanding, but we recommend staking them out to increase space and
keep your tent from becoming a tumbleweed.
• Hang onto your stuff sacks or they'll blow away and create backcountry litter.
• Pull on the pole sleeve fabric when inserting poles to avoid any bunching in the material.
• Push rather than pull poles through pole sleeves.
Cut here to remove. Do Not Tear!
Slide repair pole over the break to act as a splint.
